MESSAGE FROM THE TREASURER.

These are the days of electronic banking, cashless societies and 'chequeless' organisations.

So there are many options to chose from if you want to donate to St Michael's.

Gift Aid Envelopes.

On request you can be issued with a box of 52 envelopes, one for each week of the Tax Year, April to March, your envelope will carry a number unique to you. Using this system will enable the Church to claim tax back, currently 25p in every £1. The claiming of Income Tax is very important to the financial survival of the Church, so this is an important way to give.

If you are using the 'Yellow Envelopes' please ensure that you complete the details on the face of the envelope - otherwise we are unable to claim the Gift Aid element of your donation.  

Contactless Payments: We now have the facility for you to make "card payments" using our new card reader. This is a secure and confidential method of donating/making a payment to St Michael's. Please see the current weekly Pew Sheet, 16/6, which is also available through the Pew Sheet Tab on this website, or speak to Neil our Churchwarden.
