St. Andrew's relies on the generosity of many supporters to be able to maintain it's life and work which costs in the region of £110,000 a year.
This page explains some of the ways that can be used to contribute to the church.
- Gifts can be either one off, or part of the regular "Freewill Offering" scheme organised by the church.
- You can give for designated special purposes if you have an interest in say the preservation of the building, the Food Bank or outreach of some sort.
- For those who pay income tax gifts can be "Gift Aided", which enables the church to claim an extra 25% of the value of the gift from the Inland Revenue. Each £100 gift aided gives the church £125; well worth doing!

- The Generous Giving Website gives some helpful notes about how we can enjoy being generous.
