Our Shrine Secretary requests your attention: 

Help us minimise admin & maximise your giving: ask for Gift Aid envelopes to your name

The box sets of GIFT AID envelopes for the new tax year will be available for collection shortly. Anyone who is a tax payer and a regular user of the occasional Gift Aid envelopes (those left on the benches) are encouraged to ask for their own set of dated and numbered Sunday Gift Aid envelopes, as those are much less time consuming for us to process.

Please contact Jane Wright to have your own set ordered for you. Shrine Office: warrington@fssp.org
