Your Giving Matters
The recent coronavirus pandemic and the cost of living crisis have undoubtedly placed a strain on our finances as a church in the last couple of years, and we appreciate that you may have or be feeling the effects of this. If you would like to give towards the mission and work of St Michael’s at this time, we would be most grateful for your support.
Because of your generous donations, we can continue to provide weekly services, support our missionary partners, invest in the life and faith of our children and young people, amongst other things. Everything we do at St Michael’s is made possible by your support – so thank you.

We would really appreciate you considering leaving a legacy to St. Michael’s in your will.
Please talk to the vicar or wardens about any particular wishes how your legacy is to be used.
We would also direct you to https://www.stewardship.org.uk/legacy-and-estate-giving. If you wish to change your charitable donations in your will, it requires your solicitor to amend your will at a cost. By making your charitable legacy through Stewardship’s Legacy Services any changes can be done by just amending your instruction to Stewardship.
