April 2021 Dear Parishioners,

We hope you are all keeping safe in these very difficult times

With limited capacity at St John Fisher and the ending of Sunday Mass at St Richard’s this has an effect on parish income.

However, many of our expenses remain unaltered.

If you usually give your donation to the church through the weekly plate, can we please ask you to consider normalising it with a regular monthly Standing Order/ gift-aided donation?

Gift Aid does not cost you anything if you pay any Income Tax and any income tax you have paid on the money you donate will be given to the Parish by the inland revenue. This makes every £1.00 you give into £1.25

A Standing Order/Gift Aid form can be downloaded by clicking HERE. 

Please email completed forms to John Macaulay -  ga.wellington.stjohnfisher@cliftondiocese.com

If you do not feel you are able to commit to a regular monthly payment at the current time, this is appreciated, as many of us will be facing our own financial problems.  However, any amount you can afford to give will be very much appreciated and can be given by clicking the following button.  Again this donation can be “Gift Aided”. Or if you prefer you can pay it directly into the parish account.

NatWest Bank. St John Fisher Wellington.  Sort code 52 10 03 Account Number 66849357

Alternatively, you can click the "Donate" link above  to use your Paypal account to make a donation.

This will help to keep our Parish from a potential difficult situation.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

With Best Wishes,

Chris Shackleton

Treasurer St John Fisher Wellington/St Richard Wiveliscombe 


On behalf of the Finance and General Purposes Committee
