Can you help us?
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we now face a significant drop in our income and ability to function in the near future through no Sunday collections and our hall users having had to cease meeting.
As a church we still have to pay our utility bills, community charge, insurances and £47,000 parish share to the Manchester Diocese.
We have a generous God. Can we meet up to his challenge to be more like him?
If you often give to the church though cash or cheque in the collection plate, might we ask you to consider giving by standing order. This would help us maintain a regular income, which would be especially helpful during the period of no public worship.
Anyone using online banking can use these details to set up a standing order from home:
Christ Church West Didsbury
Sort code 40-52-40
Account number 00029660
Otherwise it can be set up by telephoning your bank, writing to them, or calling into your branch.
Forms are available for gift aiding your stewardship if you pay tax. These are on the sidespersons table at church (or they can be delivered to you).
