Building Fund
The Parish has established a building fund to help finance the substantial programme of repair and maintenance of the Church building which is required over the course of the next few years. Further information on this is given in our leaflet on planned giving.

The building fund is financed by fund raising activities organised by parishioners throughout the year, as well as one-off donations and monthly collections in church.
Monthly collections
Once a month (normally on the third Sunday of the month) there is a second collection held at each week-end Mass for the purposes of the building fund. The box of weekly offertory envelopes used by many of our parishioners include envelopes for the building fund collection.

Parishioners who make their normal weekly offerings by bank standing order can use a special white envelope for their building fund offerings, marking the envelope "Standing Order". These envelopes are available in the Church Narthex. Better still, parishioners could make their building fund offerings through completing a separate bank standing order.

The dates of the building fund collections currently planned for the 2017/18 financial year are as follows:
