Giving, in its broadest sense, enables our church to flourish and grow. Giving includes volunteering our time, utilising our unique gifts and talents and, of course, our financial giving. We receive no central funding to pay our bills and sustain our work, which means we rely on the generosity of those who visit and worship at St Aidan’s.

Giving doesn’t just help us with our Sunday service. It allows us to support the community and offer the additional events seen on this website.

Legacy Giving

This autumn, the Church of England has partnered with Farewill, the National Will Writing Firm of the Year 2020, to offer an online will writing service, which you can do from the comfort of your home in less than 30 minutes. Farewill’s specialist team are available to help you over the phone or live chat 7 days a week, 9am-7pm. There are a limited number of free wills available on a first-come-first served basis.

There is no obligation for anyone to leave a gift in their will to their church. However, if you decide that you can, your gift – great or small – will make a real difference to your church’s life for future generations.
