Thank you for your support

We are entirely self-funded and the months of the pandemic have affected everything and everybody, not least our financial situation, which is currently cause for concern.
We're grateful to everyone who continues to support the church and its work, which goes beyond weekly services. Thank you!
If you're not already a regular giver, please consider whether you can give a little each month. Small amounts are just as welcome as large ones, really!
It's easy to give, here's a link to our "Giving" page
