Please Support Our Parish
We are deeply grateful for all the support we receive from our congregation, our community and visitors.
We rely heavily on the generosity of our parishioners.
As you will be aware there are costs associated with maintaining and running our Churches, for which we receive no other support.
You can continue to support your Parish by taking donations in envelopes to Mass or post your envelope through the letterboor at either of the presbyteries at Our Lady Queen of Peace or St Bede's. This would greatly assist the parish finances in maintaining the bank account at a satisfactory level.
You can also make your donation by cheque to cover a number of weeks contributions.
Alternatively please consider signing up for a Standing Order for your donation.
You can download your Standing Order Form HERE.
You can select to make your donations monthly/quarterly or annually.
Please take or send the completed form to your bank.
If you pay tax you can increase your donations by detaching & signing the Gift Aid section of the Standing OrderForm & returning it to church. It won't cost you any extra and for every £1 you donate the parish can reclaim £1.25.
Thank you for your help. It is greatly appreciated.
