Our Finances during the crisis:
   

The work of our church is reliant on people’s generosity, a generosity that is a hallmark of a lived-out faith and a testament to it. We really appreciate all the support that people are already giving both in terms of time and money: Thank you so much. 

However,  with the restrictions of the last year and more, we have not received all the gifts that we usually would, so we would be very grateful if you consider supporting the ministry of our Benefice financially, either for the first time or by reviewing your existing giving.   In a normal year we would be holding many fundraising events and activities but obviously many of these have not been possible for some time now.

If you are able to give on a regular basis, either for the first time or by increasing your giving, please contact Michael Gamble on 07795400262 or canalsideoffice@gmail.com who will explain what you need to do. 

If you would prefer to make a one off donation to help us continue our work in the Canalside Parishes please click on the link below for the church(es) you wish to support.    This will enable you to make a donation online via the "Give a little" website.
