It is the support of our parishioners and visitors that enables us to be the church in this parish. We are so grateful for any offer of support that can help us to continue to bear witness to the presence of Christ and the love of God in this place.
Many gifts in many forms
If you feel a connection to this parish, in any form, and would like to support us in the work that we do here together, we would be delighted to hear from you. Support comes to us in many types and all are valid and important to help us to build up and maintain the church for generations to come. This page suggests a few ways you might be able to help us.
Praying for us
We ask that you hold us in prayer. Please pray for the people of this parish, for the life of this church, and for the ways in which we seek to help people connect with the activity and presence of God in their lives. Knowing that we are supported in prayer is central to all we do and gives us real strength. Whether at home or by joining us at our sevices we are grateful for your prayerful support.
Almighty God, we pray for your blessing on all who
share in the life and work of this Church and Parish:
In the ministry of word and sacrament,
in teaching and pastoral care,
in service to the Diocese and Deanery.
The community and those in need,
in ecumenical fellowship and co-operation.
We pray for all members of the congregation,
that in their life and work they may advance
your kingdom and bear witness to your love,
shown in your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
Supporting us Financially
General giving to the church supports us in our pastoral ministry, our youth work, our mission, and the day-to-day upkeep of the buildings – primarily here in the parish but also in the diocese as part of The Church of England. Giving is part of our spiritual life because it acknowledges that the resources we have first and foremost belong to God.
If you feel called or prompted to support the Church we have a variety of ways to make it easier.
We are grateful to those who choose to support us on a regular basis. The favoured method is through the Parish Giving Scheme which enables a monthly direct debit to be set up and paid directly into our account. Click here to read more information about the scheme.
If you’d like to consider this method of giving, then please contact us for the form or pick one up from the back of our churches.
Sometimes people wish to donate to us on a one-off basis. These gifts to the church are often vitally important to the special projects and wider work of our parish. If you wish to donate in this way, then there a number of ways:
- A Cheque made payable to ‘St Just in Roseland PCC’ can be sent to The Treasurer, c/o The Parish Office, St Mawes Church Rooms, Church Hill, St Mawes, TR2 5DP.
- A cash donation can be given directly in the churches’ donation places – although larger donations are best transferred to the Treasurer or clergy by hand.
- A Yellow Gift Aid envelope can be filled in with cash donations. These are always available in our churches.
- Bank Transfers can be made – contact us for details
Please consider making your donation with Gift Aid enabled. If you are a UK taxpayer, the government will add 25% to your donation. This can either be fulfilled through the yellow envelopes or by requesting a Gift Aid form from us.
Once you have made provision for your loved ones, you have the opportunity to make a lasting gift to God, by leaving a legacy to His church. A gift in your Will to your local church is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can continue to support its mission and ministry within your community. These types of donation can be set for a specific aspect of our work or for the general life. In the past, the work of our churches has been greatly supported by such legacies.
Supporting our Fundraising Events
Through the year we have a variety of events to raise funds for our church and work. These range from the Harvest Supper, to stalls, to church barbecues. If you would like to support these events then please sign up to our Enewsletter (at bottom of the page) to receive news of when they are. If you would like to contribute to these events through time, crafts, or baking, then we’d be delighted to have you on board!
In both our churches we have a range of cards and bookmarks available for sale. The funds from these also go towards the life of our church.
Support is not always financial and we are tremendously grateful for all those who join in with the life of this church by sharing their time, their skills, and their gifts with the parish. There are many ways to be involved with us. In our general life we have a range of ways for you to join in. Or, there are ways to become a specific Friend or Companion of St Just in Roseland Church.
