All churches must pay a parish share (quota) to Manchester Diocese. This is used mainly to support stipendiary clergy and the ministry and mission across the Diocese. Our parish share for 2021 is £37,000.
In addition, we have general running costs - lighting, heating, insurance, church supplies etc. The only income we receive is from the kind donations of individuals. Some local businesses sponsor our annual Church Calendar and to advertise in our parish magazine.
If you would like to make a donation, you can do this by PayPal paypal.me/StThomaschurch .
Alternatively, if you would like to set up a regular donation by standing order or direct debit, please email email@example.com for the bank account details.
Donations can now be made in church by debit/credit card using our electronic card reader.
