and we need FINANCE:

Did you know: 

The Church of England requires each community to fund its local church in full;

Our contribution to the payroll costs for the clergy and their support staff is about £4,000 per year;

It costs over £1,000 per year and a lot of volunteer work to keep the churchyard looking tidy;

Our insurance and electricity together cost over £2,000 per year;

After we meet our basic costs, we rarely have much left over to meet the repair programme (totalling over £25,000) recommended in our last 5 yearly inspection;

Over 90% of our regular income comes from donations from individuals and fund raising work by volunteers.
