St Mary's Parish Church is Harefield's oldest building. More importantly it is a place of worship and prayer for a lively Christian family, as well as being an important focal point for the wider Harefield community. We believe that life without faith is incomplete. We try to be a Church that welcomes everyone, and enables all - whatever their starting point - to explore and grow in the Christian faith. We hope you find this site helpful. If you need more information, please refer to the contact box below. Our real prayer is that it may whet your appetite to get in touch, and perhaps to come and join us!
“Every penny counts and every person matters”
Covid-19 has caused a sudden and unexpected financial challenge to the world, the UK … and to the Church. St Mary’s does not have enough regular income to cover its normal overall expenditure – and this has been compounded since March 2020 by a lack of fundraising and a drop in other sources of sustaining income.
We are predicting a shortfall at the end of 2021 of approximately £11,000.
What are we doing about this? – and what can we do?
(1) All income from FUNDRAISING (which is now able to take place again) is being put towards general Church Funds to “keep the ship afloat”
[We have existing dedicated monies for special projects]
Please support ‘Social and Fundraising events’ which are also valuable for bringing us all together again after an unnatural time of isolation.
(2) We have a ‘GIFT DAY’ on Sunday 17 October
Please take this opportunity to give a one-off monetary gift for St Mary’s
“It is in giving that we receive” (St. Francis of Assisi)
You can donate directly via this website
or you might like to contribute via bank transfer, in which case please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will give you the necessary details
or post a cheque to the Parish Office, 28 Countess Close, Harefield UB9 6DL
(Cheques are payable to ‘Harefield Parochial Church Council’)
Please gift aid if possible … forms (or envelopes) are available via this website at church or from the Parish Office
or please bring your gift to the church
There is also facility for contactless card giving at the church whenever you visit.
(3) We would like to sincerely thank everyone who has given faithfully and regularly over these difficult times
[This is what has kept us going – and still does]
“God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7)
Please consider giving regularly by Bankers Order
(forms available via this website, at church or from the Parish Office)
(and gift-aiding if you can will maximise any amount)
(4) Please review your giving to St Mary’s
We are very aware that we all face personal financial challenges right now
but St Mary’s has to pay its bills as well!
(5) Why not become a ‘Friend of St Mary’s’?
(Leaflets are available via this website, at church or from the Parish Office)
This will benefit the church and ensure ongoing contact
Thank you so much – for whatever you can do
May God bless you
