Support us – St Mary the Virgin’s, Erwarton
People in Erwarton are involved in practical ways to keep the church the beautiful place it is. They help by doing whatever is necessary: they mow the churchyard, painted the shed, weed the path and lend a hand when we have big events on.
If you would like to help with the flowers for the flower festival or for our weekly services, please contact Wendy on 787101. She will be pleased to hear from you.
The Historic Churches Trust sponsored Bike Ride raises money for our ancient churches. Although our congregation have given up on riding their bikes, they spend the day in church signing the papers of those cycling from church to church and offering some welcome refreshments.
When you need us for a baptism, a wedding, a funeral or for pastoral support we want to be there to support you. We do not receive any regular funding from outside agencies: everything we do is funded through the generous giving of our church family members and people in our local community.
You can support us financially in a number of ways:
* By setting up a Standing Order with your bank – if you would like details on how to do this and on church bank account numbers, or a Standing Order form then please contact our treasurer through our contact page.
* By joining the Parish Giving Scheme. This is a safe and easy way to make regular donations. Please contact our treasurer through the cont page. He will be able to tell you all you need to know about the scheme and how to join.
If you are a UK taxpayer (Income or Capital Gains Tax) and would like the church to be able to claim back the basic rate tax through the government’s Gift Aid scheme, you will need to fill in, sign and return to us an ongoing Gift Aid declaration if you have not done so already. St Mary’s can recover the basic rate of income tax, currently 25p for each pound given, at no extra cost to you.
