How to Donate
Inclusive and Diverse, striving to share God’s love for all
We receive no public funding or church funding for our community and our building. That’s why we have to ask for donations and it’s vitally important if we are to continue here in Finchley. Our costs include over £90,000 for the provision of clergy, their housing and central diocese of London costs. We have to pay to insure our buildings and our church building is a Grade II listed building. We need to pay for energy, office costs and other church expenditure such as music, services, flowers and so on. In addition, but fundamental to our mission, we need to find money to support those in need around us and those engaged in supporting Christian communities around the world.
We are asking for financial support for two reasons
You can make a one-off donation to St Mary’s online via Give a Little. You will be able to add gift aid if you are a taxpayer. Just follow the links below:
You can also donate via a bank transfer. Our bank details are Account No: 37543784 Sort Code 60-08-20 (St Mary-at-Finchley Church Fund Account). Please mark your donation General if you are giving for General Giving. If you are a UK taxpayer St Mary’s can claim Gift Aid on your donation, increasing your donation at no expense to you.

We would be grateful if you could give us a legacy in your will. All you need to do is tell your professional who advises you on your will to include one of the following two clauses:

I give …percent (…%) of my residuary estate free of all taxes to the PCC of the parish of St Mary-at-Finchley in the Diocese of London for General Funds, and I declare the receipt of an officer of the PCC shall be a sufficient discharge to my executors and trustees.
