Letter from our Parish Treasurer

Dear Parishioners,

I sincerely hope that you and your family have been keeping safe and well during the past number of weeks.  Thanks to all of those who have been involved in providing us with new ways to worship and to keep us connected.

I wanted to write to you for two reasons.  Firstly, I wanted to acknowledge that things have changed for everyone in some way during this crisis and that perhaps, for some of you, personal income is uncertain.  If anyone has concerns in this regard, I invite you to privately discuss your concerns with Reverend Philip and we will strive to assist how we can.

Secondly, as nearly seventy five percent of weekly donations to the Union are by plate or envelope giving and as we have not been able to hold our regular services, there has been a significant decrease in parish income.  We have been trying to minimise costs where possible, but many fixed costs, including Parochial Assessments that support the church’s ministry, are still ongoing.  If you are in a position to contribute during this time, below are ways you could continue supporting the church:

  1. For regular giving, simply use your internet banking to set up a standing order using the account details below (Note: Standing Orders also have the benefits of enabling you to budget effectively and to help the church to calculate cash flow more effectively.)
    OR
  2. For one-time payments, either use your internet banking to make an electronic funds transfer to the account details below or send a cheque by post to the Parish Treasurer, payable to the name of your individual church.

I thank you for your support and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me by email at
