Help Our Church

St. Margaret’s Church is here to serve the people of our Parish.  Many people come to have their children Baptised, to get married, to hold the funeral Service of a loved one or to lay their remains to rest in the surrounding Churchyard.  Many people pop in to the building to pray, to seek help in time of trouble or to give thanks for some special moment.  

Donations to St Margaret's Church

There is now a way to donate to St Margaret's Church using "Donate Now" set up by the Diocese of Lichfield to help their churches.  Their Finance Team, with help from a local software company, Date Developments, have put a Donate Now button on the Diocese website.

If you would like to make a donation to St Margaret’s Church, then click on the link to the Donate Now page, after you have clicked the button, you can enter your details and can choose St Margaret’s from the drop-down list of churches. 

In addition, there is a Gift Aid option as well as an option for donors to cover the transaction cost if they want to.  As is the case with Contactless and Giving Direct, funds go into the Diocesan bank account as the registered charity and are then passed on to St Margaret’s as soon as possible along with a report showing when the donations were made. 

Many Thanks

St Margaret’s Church building is here because of the efforts of the past but it has to be maintained and kept available for the future.  Like most churches, we do not get money from the government nor do we have wealthy endowments.  All the costs of the building and providing the ministry of the church has to be met from current fundraising, our weekly collections and special events.  Nationally there are charges for Marriage and Funeral services and we have to charge to cover the costs of the volunteers who play the music, ring the bells or sing.  

So, to help support the work of the Church and the upkeep of the building we are always glad of one-off donations or regular giving.  The one concession we have from the government is that through Gift Aid we can reclaim the income tax on gifts from those who pay tax.  (This amounts to 25p for every £1 given.)  If you would like to help in any way, regular giving, one-off gifts to support the running of the church, or to help maintain the fabric, then please ask for details.  Would you also consider remembering the Church in your Will? 

Thank you
