URGENT Second appeal for the lady parishioner to be married in rural Bucks (Haddenham/Long Crendon area) on 7th September to please contact the parish office to commence the paperwork.

A PLUG to Pay Your Weekly Offering via Standing Order. Our new procedures for counting/accounting/banking are much more complicated and time-consuming than before. Recommended by H.M.R.C., our Diocese have imposed them to enable us to be able to claim Gift Aid on loose change in the collection up to £1,000 p.a. per Church. However, on balance, it would be of great help if more parishioners paid by Standing Order, thus minimising the work-load. Please seriously consider this option.

If you can help in this way, please let us have your details: (either contact the parish office or drop the slip below in the collection basket) and we will send you the appropriate form. Thank You.
