Church Finance

All of our funding comes from donations, including
• Standing Orders from regular donors
• Collections taken in church
• Funds raised at special events
• Gift Aid top-ups from HMRC

We need money to
• Meet our regular expenses
• Support our chosen charities

Regular expenses include
• Our contribution to the Diocese (including our vicar’s salary/pension)
• Upkeep of the church buildings and churchyard
• Parish administration expenses

Charitable contributions follow the tithing principle (10% of income)
• Raised at special services and dedicated charity events
