St Peter's relies on the generous offering of time and talents of innumerable people. To sustain and grow the life of St Peter’s we welcome all support. Click here to see why.
The regular expenditure of St Peter’s church is about £12,000 per month, which covers support of activities, Youth and Children’s work, Pastoral care, training and education, outreach and worship as well as maintenance, administration and salaries. We receive no external funding. So we rely on the generous donations of households and individuals to continue and develop our church. Currently such contributions amount to about £10,500 per month. In order to sustain our church life, and to grow new initiatives, we need to address the monthly shortfall of around £1,500 by new, and increased, regular donations from our church community.
Our Stewardship Scheme encourages members of St Peter’s to give regularly to support our church. Each year 10% of this income is allocated to Mission donations both in the UK and overseas.
We are grateful for all gifts made to support the life of St Peter’s and by committing to a regular donation, by Standing Order or via the Pew envelope scheme, you can help promote the on-going life, worship, work and witness of St Peter’s Church. If you are a UK tax payer by Gift-aiding your donation we can claim the basic rate of tax back from the Treasury which increases our income from your gift by 20%, at no extra cost to you.
