Supporting Our Mission Priorities  

If you would like to support the ongoing mission of Horsford Benefice e.g. the Toddler Group, family activity mornings, Christmas and Easter cards, Bibles for year 6 and reception children at Horsford primary School, you can do so by Standing Order through the Horsford PCC account with you nominating gifts for Mission. Forms are available in Horsford Church or through Frances Dawson, Treasurer, who can make the necessary arrangements. If you are a tax payer, please gift aid your donation as it will be worth 25% more!

Please continue to support your Parish Church with your existing giving as this ensures maintenance and Parish Share payments can be met.
