Financially St John's is a self-supporting parish. The parish receives no government money apart from tax refunds under the Gift Aid scheme. It currently costs us approximately £2,500 a week to run the parish. This cost includes holding services, paying for clergy, our organist and music director, and our part-time administrator, looking after our historic church building and making our contribution to the wider diocese.
Here are some financial options for supporting the work of St John’s:
