sustain our level of output, there also has to be input. We need the time,
talents and energies of many people. We also need money.
To run even a little church like St. Margaret's costs over £70,000 a year.
This covers running costs, routine maintenance and our contribution to the costs of the national church (which accounts for well over half our annual income).
all special projects, such as building a loo and for all major restoration, such
as fitting a new roof, additional money has to be raised.
We raise money in a variety of ways:
The Weekly Envelope Scheme
The blue envelopes for Gift Aid donations
Fund Raising Committee
We also have a calendar of fund raising events. The Fund Raising Committee run the Annual Church Summer Fete and the Christmas Fayre, along with many other interesting activities. We are deeply indebted to their work.
