The Finance Committee meets on a regular basis to prepare and monitor the parish budget. Members of this committee are responsible for agreeing all parish financial contracts and major expenses and recommending any necessary financial actions to the Parish Pastoral Council.
We are grateful for the generosity of parishioners who contribute to our weekly offertory collection. Those who wish to make their contribution by standing order are welcome to do so – please contact the Parish Office for further details.
We urge tax payers to join our Gift Aid Scheme; this enables us to claim 25p from the Inland Revenue for every £1 donated, at no added cost to the donor. If you would like to join the scheme, or have any enquiries about it, please contact the parish office.
Christmas Bazaar & Garden Fete
The Parish Christmas Bazaar takes place every year in November, in the Parish Hall & Parish Centre. There is also a Parish Garden Fete in the Presbytery garden, on a Saturday early in the summer. We welcome items for stalls and as prizes for these events. Details are published in the parish newsletter, including the dates and times of planning meetings.
The Social Committee meets regularly to discuss and plan the many parish social and fund-raising events.
Holy Cross Parish Hall & Centre
On the first Friday evening of each month there is a Family Quiz which begins at 8 p.m. The Parish Hall and Centre are regularly used for parish social functions. For more information contact the Parish Office Monday to Friday between 9:30am and 1:30pm only.
