On-Line Giving through Give a Little
St Mary’s church is much more than the building you all know and are familiar with. The body of people that make up the church family are involved in many activities that benefit the community. By exploring this website you will see the work done with the young people of Highley, the men’s group, various other women’s groups such as Allsorts and other support groups. The parish hall is available as a venue for community groups.
Christenings, Weddings and Funerals are all part of the services offered to the community, but as you can guess all these things require financial support. The majority comes from the congregation.
The day to day cost of running the church, parish hall and outreach in Highley costs £1,400 per week. The Coronavirus lockdown has stopped income from hall lettings, plate collections and fundraising We predict around a £6,000 shortfall in funding in 2020.
Funds for huge projects such as the church restoration are raised and held separate from the day to day costs (and are therefore excluded from the figure above).
