Our parishes are suffering financially as a consequence of the current ‘lockdown’ – regular collections are not happening and income usually generated by hiring out parish halls has stopped.
Of course, some of us as individuals have also been hit financially in these difficult times, but please, if you possibly can, consider how you can offer financial support to your parish during this period.
If you don’t already do so, please consider setting up a regular standing order. You can find your parish’s details in their newsletters, on each parish’s pages or by contacting the parish directly (contact details also on parish pages).
If you pay tax, please GIFT AID your contribution as that makes such a difference, at no extra cost to you. Again, details in newsletters, on our parish pages or by contacting the parish.
Two of our parishes (Christchurch and Southbourne) also have a secure DONATE button on their parish page on our website, which makes giving very easy indeed.
