Supporting the work of the Church
If you would like to support the Church financially, you can send a cheque (Payable to “St Mary’s Church, Whitkirk”) – please go to the ‘contact us’ page for the address and let us know what you would like the money to be used for (eg Mission, Upkeep of the Grade 1 listed church, or it may be for a more specific purpose). We’ll be happy to make sure it is set aside for that purpose.
Have you made a will? The church has been here for the best part of 1,000 years; we plan long term and if you would like to do the same by making a bequest of either a specific amount or a percentage of your estate, please either speak to your solicitor or let us know and we’ll be happy to talk with you about this. If you’d like to read more, please see our Legacy Policy.
Thank you for your gift.
