Supporting St Mary’s Oswaldtwistle parish financially, are you able to help?
All parishes need financial support with rising basic running utility type costs that we all encounter plus the necessary maintenance to keep clean and tidy for our comfort.
We are also facing large capitol costs for the structural repairs needed to repair the roof and several other major structural defects inevitable in a building of its age.
We recognise that parishioners are also struggling financially, and therefore there is no expectation to give where you are unable to do so.
If you are able to consider supporting the parish financially, we have set out the options for donation available to you below.
Thanks to all of our parish family for your ongoing support.
How can I donate?
You can currently donate as usual with your envelope, with cash or a cheque enclosed.
As parishes hold their income in bank accounts, standing orders are the easiest option for your regular giving – and you will no longer need to worry about having the right cash on a weekly basis, when we’re back in our parish churches.
Giving by standing order
Regular giving is the financial bedrock of our parish. It also minimises risk and costs the parish has to manage, so your money goes further.
If you have online banking you can set this up online, or you can print the standing order form for your parish found in the link standing order mandate and post it to your bank or parish.
Please also look at linking your donations to Gift Aid, it's free and easy too, the parish gets taxation rebates on you donation of 25p for every £1 which all adds up.
