Fr David’s Easter Message

It is a great and Paschal Joy, notwithstanding the Covid-19 restrictions, to see so many who have been able to return  to Church this Easter. Thank you to all those who have helped make that possible, because: receiving and celebrating the Sacraments is Essential for our Salvation and Eternal Life.

We continue to pray and hope, free from fear,  for an end to this “pandemic” and for all our lives to focus on Our Risen Lord Jesus.

Parish Collections and Gift Aid

In early April we will start a new financial year for Gift Aid. This year I am reducing the number of boxes we will be using and changing the numbers. I have also ordered boxes for those who pay by standing order for second collections.

Can I ask that all those taking part in the Gift Aid scheme either text or email me to let me know if they are able to carry on with the scheme and if they wish to pay by standing order? Once I have details of those taking part in the scheme next year, I will let you know your number so that you can get your box from Father David. If anyone wants to pay by standing order but does not want to take part in the Gift Aid scheme then please get in touch and I will supply details of the bank account.

I can be contacted:
    by text   on 07504 460736   (please do not phone me)
or by email on

Thank you all for your support of the Church at this time.

Richard Gillespie (Gift Aid Co-Ordinator).
