This weekend in our parish we launch a four week ‘planned giving renewal program’. During this time we hope that each parishioner might take some time to reconsider their financial  contribution to our parish. We are known as a parish who have good levels of participation and community, however we are also currently living beyond our means. This weekend the priests will include in their preaching some spiritual  encouragement to be generous with what God has blessed us with. Over the next few weeks there will be an opportunity for you, in a concrete way, to understand our current financial position and to respond to this. Thanks in advance for your prayerful consideration of these issues.

All over the world Catholics are hearing God’s call to a deeper conversion of faith and are seeking a deeper personal relationship with Christ. 

Parishes are opening the doors of our Church to their community.

We want to move beyond just maintenance…  You can help our Parish thrive and start impacting our community. 

You can find details below on how you can help financially.


While we are unable to attend Masses in our church due to Covid-19, we cannot receive any envelope giving each week. As a consequence, our parish income has halved placing considerable financial pressure on us. In addition, we are facing new costs as we setup new ways to function as a parish, including livestreaming of Masses, Facebook and video conferencing.

We appreciate that some of you will be putting your weekly giving into envelopes and holding onto them until we are in a position to receive them from you.

We’d like to encourage those who can, to switch from envelopes to internet banking to electronically transfer their regular giving direct from your own bank account.

You may wish to revert to envelope giving once we are able to hold masses again or, preferably, continue with regular giving through internet banking.

“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work”
