Supporting St Michael's
During the lockdown we have taken a significant financial hit, with no money going on the collection plate, and there being no hall bookings (which is still the case, other than Poppets Playgroup).
We are very grateful to those who have been giving to the church by standing order during this time, and if you don't currently, you would be helping to ensure that St Michael's is here to support the local community in years to come. If you feel able to set one up it would be helpful if you could let me know if you are doing this, including whether you have previously given using the envelope scheme, so I can pass these details on to the Gift Aid Officer.
Contrary to some people's expectations, the Church of England receives no financial support from the government, and we are entirely reliant on the generosity of our congregation members to continue opening our doors (a big building like ours requires significant funding to maintain and operate).
To give by standing order:
