Support Us

There are a number of ways to support St Laurence:  through worship, through the giving of your time and through the giving of your talents.  We appreciate enormously the support we receive from those who assist in a wide variety of areas, ranging from flower arranging and gardening, through music and singing to finance, administration and sitting on the PCC(Parochial Church Council).  If you would like to support St Laurence Church in any of these aspects, please contact office@stlaurence.co.uk.

In addition, there are various ways of giving financially: by donating directly to the Church or by supporting our Fund Raising initiatives:.

 

Free Will Offering

You can donate to St Laurence by monthly standing order, through weekly envelopes and via collections during services. If you are a tax payer, you can make a Gift Aid declaration which enables the Church  to reclaim tax on the donation.

 

St Laurence 100 Club

You are welcome to join the St Laurence 100 Club, another one of our fund-raising initiatives. The Club is open to those over 16 years of age and membership costs £10 a year.  There is a monthly draw for three prizes, with first prize being £20, the second £10 and the third £5.

The St Laurence 100 Club Rules and St Laurence 100 Club Entry Form may be found by clicking on the heading of this section.  Forms are also available in the Church, the Church Office at All Saints Lodge or from the Vicar, the Church Wardens and Alison Parsons.
