Giving at the beginning of 2019

Revd Andrew Doye said: "I thank those who have supported the work of our churches by regular giving in the year past: some 85 of us through the Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) and a further 23 by means of the coloured envelopes or standing orders. Although details are unknown to me, this generous support goes a great way to allowing our churches to flourish and serve their community. For others wanting to join the giving scheme please take a leaflet at the back of church or speak with our Treasurer and Churchwardens"

If you are able to make a regular contribution to the Church, the preferred method of giving is using the Parish Giving Scheme. Leaflets are at the back of our churches or contact a Churchwarden.

“In December 2018, we passed £1/4M donated to our parish via the Parish Giving Scheme. This includes nearly £50k in Gift Aid and more than £15k in inflationary and voluntary increases in giving. Thank you all”, Jonathan Kipling, Churchwarden.

Westbourne Church Restoration Trust (WCRT)

The church has stood for centuries at the centre of our village. It is a lovely building, which exists for everybody in the parish whether they attend church or not. For the church to continue to serve and to be enjoyed by village generations to come, a Trust was created in 1992 to assist financially with its restoration and repair.
