Tap to Donate

Tap to Donate is a new initiative promoted by our Diocese.

In the foyer of the Church, there is now a contactless card payment machine, which works just like those in the shops.

All you need do is select either the Offertory or Second Collection, an amount on the screen (or choose your own amount), and tap your card on top of the unit. If your donation is more than £45 you will need to put your card in the machine and enter your PIN.

You can request a receipt if you wish, which will be emailed to you.

If you are a tax payer, please sign up to Gift Aid as we will be able to claim an extra 25p for every £1 you donate. It makes a huge difference to us.

Everything you can do on the contactless card payment machine in the Church, you can do online by clicking on the button below.


With the current concern of the transmission of the coronavirus through the exchange of cash and cheques, we strongly encourage those that can to make use of electronic payments. We have the online, Tap to Donate facility, as well as a card payment machine in the foyer of the Church. You can also set up a standing order with your bank.

Priest Training Fund


Invest in the future of our Church

Pray - for vocations to the Priesthood.
Encourage - those who have the calling, give them the courage to say 'Yes'.
Donate - to support the cost of training men to the Roman Catholic Priesthood and Diaconate.

The priesthood has been essential to the life of the Church from the time of Jesus to today.
In costs £30,000 a year, for six years, to sponsor each seminarian. We therefore rely on your generosity of heart to fund our Priests of Tomorrow. Thank you.
