Church Income

Christian Faith is a lifelong journey. As our thinking about God’s generosity and our understanding of his call changes so we develop our response. 

Christians are challenged to be generous in all parts of life – offering hospitality, giving our time, using our skills in and through our church and for our community.

Regular committed giving by church members enables the church to carry out God’s mission in the world.
Your charitable giving shares new life, new vision, new hope. 

Our income is entirely made of planned giving and other charitable donations. We need to generate 100% of our income through our activities and donations from our electoral roll of 160, with, of course, other members of the parish as a whole.

With the help and good will of parishioners and friends the Christian community is able to continue the work of previous generations, and preserve the church for the future.

Planned giving is crucial for the work of the church. We invite all church members to join in planned giving pledging to support the life and work of the church and also by supporting fund raising events. 


Planned Giving

This enables us to run the ministry of the church, including regular Sunday and weekday worship, wedding and funeral services,  Baptisms, Noah’s Ark for Mums and Tots, afterschool club for primary children, youth groups, coffee and chat midweek, home groups, events and social activities, and to maintain our buildings and churchyards.

In our parish we have three wonderful heritage buildings for the church to maintain. They are a great asset and also very demanding on resources. 


 The Chancel in St Nicholas


Our three buildings, two welcoming Victorians and an early medieval gem, are showing their age!

The ancient stonework, timber, lead and glass is vulnerable to the weather and the years, and sadly, recently to thefts.


 East Window in St James the Less Pangbourne


It costs £2,300  per week to run our 3 churches in the Parish of Pangbourne, Tidmarsh and Sulham.

Every contribution, however large or small counts and enables us to keep the three churches open and welcoming to all. 

We invite our parishioners to give generously to help maintain the church buildings for present, and future, village communities.
