PLANNED GIVING SCHEME

St. Cuthbert and St. Aidan’s Churches rely on the generosity of the members of the Church Family for its income. This is how we pay all the bills and resource our ministry and mission.

Thank you all for your support during the past year and we hope you will continue to support your churches financially in 2020.

We will not be having a ‘Planned Giving’ Sunday this autumn and will instead be moving to a wider ranging appeal for people’s time, talents and planned giving to be held in the new year.
For those who give using the weekly or monthly envelopes, new envelopes will be available in time for the first Sunday of January.
