Supporting the Cathedral: 

On-line giving is now available.  If you would like to make a donation to the Cathedral, please click here.  You can give a one-off set amount or choose your own figure.  There is also the option to Gift Aid your donation at no extra cost to you.  Thank you for your support.

Regular donations are enormously helpful to keep the mission and ministry of the Cathedral going even in this very different form. Many in the Cathedral give by direct debit through the Parish Giving Scheme, which passes on the full amount of the gift and relevant Gift Aid at no cost to us. It is easy to set up a regular donation by ringing the PGS on 0333 002 1271. They will ask for our parish code which is 080608001.
