We welcome any gift, monetary or in kind, which helps us look after the Church and its community
It costs £40,000 a year to meet the costs incurred in maintaining Christ Church. Some of these relate to our share of the costs of having a Vicar as well as other costs incurred by the Diocese. Others relate to the costs of looking after the Church and the John Venus Hall, keeping their fabric in good order and paying for insurance, heating and lighting.
£40,000 is a lot to raise each year in a village of only 350, but thanks to the generosity of many villagers as well as of some who live further afield and the fund raising events which many give their time and energy to organise, or to participate in, we usually manage to balance our books.
But, costs are steadily increasing, both for the Diocese and here in Coldharbour, and to be sure we can meet our obligations into the future we need to be assured of a steady income.
We are therefore very grateful to all those who commit to regular contributions. These can be made in a variety of ways:
