PEOPLE CAN CONTRIBUTE TO THE LIFE AND WORK
OF ST EDWARD'S IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS
Church of England churches are entirely self-financing. St. Edward's can only operate because of the generosity and commitment of its members funding our worship and our work.
St. Edward's Church depends entirely on its regular congregation, friends and visitors to keep us running. We run Fundraising Events to raise additional funds and have fun and fellowship at the same time.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
There are always lots of
opportunities for people to support the work of the church by giving some time each week through volunteering.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
Like every adult and company we do have bills …..
We have a lovely and historic building to maintain
We have a church to heat and light and to decorate
We have all the mundane things like phone bills to settle
We have a Diocesan “quota” to pay
In fact, we have more bills than will fit on this page!
But this page is not just asking you for money – it is simply to explain some of the ways we fund these bills and more importantly, to show you how, with minimal time and effort, you can make a real and substantial difference.
