Fundraising

For general church expenses

Every year we spend around £30,000 on church expenses (roughly half – the parish share – goes to support clergy salaries/ pensions/ housing/ training, etc).

Our income comes from collections, fees (e.g. wedding fees), legacies, and events.

In addition parishioners support other activities e.g. the Bicester Foodbank and Christian Aid as well as giving roughly 10% of our income to overseas charities. During the current pandemic we are unable to hold the fundraising activities as well as collections during services so, should you wish/ be able to give, we would be grateful for your support. Donations may be made via CAF.

Our account, Islip PCC, is held at Barclays, sort code: 20 65 20 account: 93817520 or donations can be sent to our Treasurer, Graham Davison at Fairlight, High Street, Islip, Oxfordshire OX5 2SN. Also, should you wish, you can set up a regular giving mandate via the Parish Giving scheme – the phone number to contact is 0333 002 1271 and St Nicholas’s unique reference number is 270 627 048.
