The place of Giving – The School and Alms Cottages here on Mount Dinham – were built in the 1860s from the philanthropy of John Dinham. St Michael’s Church itself was established as a “Chapel of Ease for the Poor of the Parish” thanks to the generous benefaction of William Gibbs.
Today, St Michael’s members continue to support charities, including those featured below.
It costs about £700 per week to keep St Michael’s open as a place of prayer, worship and mission; staffed, maintained, heated and giving pastoral and practical care to the community. Apart from GiftAid recovered on taxable donations, Churches in the UK receive no funding from Government, and CofE churches receive no direct funding from their Dioceses.
Our income is gratefully supported through Stewardship, Fundraising, Events and Regular, Planned Giving from our congregation and donations from visitors.
To make an online donation to St Michael’s, to help us maintain the Church and continue our Music & Heritage outreach, please contact the Treasurer or Vicar.
All gifts, small or large, especially from our St Michael’s Diaspora, will be most gratefully received. Alternatively, contact the Treasurer at St Michael’s Church to make a one-off gift or to become a regular donor. Thank you.
