Having looked through this site, you may still have practical questions. This page deals with issues like “Where does the money come from?”, and “Who chooses the hymns?”.
If you have other unanswered questions, please email us at [email protected]

Who chooses the hymns?

Usually the organist, who tries to make them relevant to the day and time of year.

How can I get something put on the Service Sheet?

Email [email protected]

If you want someone put on the list of people to remember in prayer (which is on the Service Sheet), you are very welcome to ask for this.
It is helpful for us to know why prayers are being requested (and for how long): if anything you want to tell us is confidential, let us know and we will of course respect this.

If you just want an event publicised we will do our best – but space is limited and we prioritise parish events.

Can I get an electronic version of the Service Sheet?

Yes – again, email [email protected]

What should I do if I leave something at Church?

Email [email protected] with as full a description as possible of what you have lost, and where you think it might be. Churchwardens take charge of lost property: after a reasonable time (about a month) it may be disposed of.

Where does the money come from to run the Church?

From users – from the worshipping congregation and people who hire the halls, mainly, although our fundraising events are also very useful (socially as well as financially).

How can I best support the Church financially?

The Treasurers at either Church will be glad to guide you around tax-efficient giving arrangements.

How do I pay by cheque?

To ‘St Stephens PCC’ or ‘St. Julians Church’, please. We are just starting to accept electronic transfers of money: please consult either of the treasurers.

If you specifically want to make a donation towards the upkeep of the two churches, we have a restoration fund – please make cheques payable to ‘St. Stephens PCC Restoration Account’.
