A very warm welcome to our parish. We are fortunate to have a fine church. Its upkeep has been helped by the Gift Aid programme which has worked well for us in the past and we have therefore begun to make efforts to ensure that offerings made by visitors during Mass are included in our Gift Aid scheme. If you are a UK taxpayer, and if you place your offering in the white envelopes found in the Foyer and simply enter your name and address, we will be able to reclaim the tax you have paid on the amount given. Envelopes can be posted in the letterbox in the Foyer, given to a parish Welcomer, or placed on the Offertory tray. The Gift Aid form can be downloaded here.
