In accordance with Canon Law the parish Finance Committee meets regularly to advise the Parish Priest on financial matters.

The Finance Committee is appointed by the parish priest to advise him of the finances of the parish, including income, spending and borrowing. It oversees the movement of money and produces an annual statement. It is particularly concerned to ensure that spending matches income. The present members of the Committee are:

  • Father Stewart
  • Marie Gleeson
  • Tom Blewitt
  • Mary Bradley
  • Kath Bolton
  • Joelle Rowthorn
  • Roger Frankland

The Parish is required to be financially self-supporting. Salaries of clergy and employees are met from the central funds of the diocese but the parish contributes to the central funds proportionately to the number of people attending the services. Most other expenditure is met directly from the parish funds.

Parish are invited to contribute according to their means. The best form of giving to the parish is through planned giving. The parishioner promises to make a regular contribution. This allows the parish to plan secure spending in the knowledge that it has a regular predictable income spread over the year.

Any donation, whether a large or small amount, is gratefully received but it is not a binding promise. If, for example, your financial circumstances change, you can change the amount that you give or stop giving altogether.

If you are and would like make regular contributions, please see the methods available.
