Giving to St Michael's

It costs just under 

£2000 per week 

to maintain and run this church.

Our principal method for meeting this sum is through your generous giving.

Even before COVID-19, we were struggling to generate this amount. with a deficit of over £350 per week.

St Michael's needs your generosity and grace more than ever to help turn this around.

"Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful give." 

Corinthians 9 v 7
