How you can make a lasting difference to the work of your church
We are blessed in West Hoathly to have a beautiful Grade 1 listed church in the centre of our village which has been cared for by generations of local people. Whether or not you are a regular churchgoer, you are invited to help us preserve this heritage for future generations and to enable the church to thrive in our community today . St. Margaret’s PCC is most grateful for any financial support you feel you can give to our lovely church and its work in our villages.
Contrary to popular belief, we do not receive any financial support from Chichester Diocese or from the Church of England. Therefore, every penny we spend has to be generated from our own efforts and from the generosity of people like you who live in our community.
The main areas of expenditure are the Diocesan Stipend that covers payroll and administration costs of ministry; the heating, lighting and other running costs of the church, ongoing maintenance and improvements to the Church building. As you will know, we currently have a major extension project underway (see ‘Our Extension’ tab) for which we are seeking donations for much needed improved facilities at St. Margaret’s.
There are many different way you can help to support St. Margaret’s whether by
- making a regular contribution by standing order or direct debit
- making a one-off dontation
- leaving a legacy to st. MArgaret’s in your will
