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, for which we continue to be grateful. We really do appreciate all gifts, large or small; every contribution makes a difference.
"Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
Corinthians 9 v 7
