Donate by text


Visitors now have a new way to give to support our church's work. You can now text a small donation from your mobile phone.

It costs around £4,000 a week to run St Mary's Church - and that's before we take into account major capital projects. We're really grateful to the church congregation for giving so generously through our planned giving scheme.

Visitors don't always have cash with them and fewer people are carrying a cheque book these days, so this is a really easy way to make a donation that will help the life of our church.
