Church Finances

At the moment the PCC manage to pay the Parish Share every month. We hold regular fund raising activities to raise money; for example, the Summer fete which has raised the sum of £1000.00 in 2011 and also 2012. We have quizzes, High Tea, skittle evenings, a dinner/cabaret evening every November, and other events, all of which are very well attended by the community. Most of the congregation are tax payers and gift aid their giving which usually means that we get between £2000 and £3000 per annum back from the Inland Revenue each year. We receive help from the parish council for the churchyard, usually around £400 per annum and the Church Lands Trust give us a donation to help with the upkeep of the church building.

We are paying £100 per month to enable a nurse to be employed in Africa through Christian Hope International and we receive regular updates on her progress from the nurse herself and also from the charity. Initially, we were only going to do this for a year but we shall continue with this aid as long as we are able.
