Supporting our church
We cannot exist without your help. Christ Church relies entirely on donations by our members and others in the community to fund all our activities and maintain our buildings and churchyard. Our church is open every day for both parishioners and visitors, including our local schools and those visiting graves in the churchyard.
Regular donations account for most of our income, generally through Gift-Aided standing orders/direct debits, together with collections at services. We are also grateful for one-off gifts and legacies, which have enabled us to undertake several major projects such as resurfacing the paths in the churchyard, laying new carpet in the church and improving the facilities in our church halls.
If you would like to know how you can support our parish church through regular giving by standing order, through a legacy or how to increase the value of your donation by Gift Aid, please contact our Treasurer Tony Robinson (01483 229141; email@example.com), our Legacy Officer Joelle Tamraz (firstname.lastname@example.org) or our Planned Giving Officer Nick Russell-Davis (01483 890719; email@example.com).

Our major challenge in the years ahead
Over the next couple of years the cost of serving our community and keeping our church and churchyard open is increasing significantly, and consequently we need to increase the number of people willing to make regular contributions to our funds. Please see the details below.
