The current lockdown is having a significant impact on the financial income of some people and businesses. The same is true for our parishes here in Banbury. Due to the closure of our Churches, we are currently losing around £1500 from the weekly offertory collections between our two parishes.
Thank you to those who donate to our parishes by standing order. This is an easy way to donate and you can sign up too. Please click below for a standing order form, ensuring you select the parish you wish to make your donation.
