St Mary's Radcliffe on Trent

Sharing God's Love

Why is there a supermarket trolley at the back of St Mary's?

As a church we support a number of organisations - through prayer, by giving a proportion of the church's income and, where appropriate, by gifts of food, toys etc.

Each year the PCC reviews the list of charities we support - usually aiming to include a mix of local, national and international causes.

Special services are held occaisionally to keep us all informed and to provide an opportunity for people to give personally.


While we are not able to take our usual offering at services, anyone who would like to can

Give here instead

Thank you!

As Christians, we are encouraged in the Bible to give freely. The Church of England suggests we should be giving five per cent of our income to the church, and another five per cent to other charities. The ten per cent figure derives from the Old Testament, but it is meant to be a basis for our giving – not a fixed sum. It is important that our giving should be sustained and regular– not just a dip into a pocket to see what’s there once a week.

Nearly all of St Mary's income comes from donations made by its members and other local supporters. Many of these give by monthly bank standing order rather than using the collection plate.
