How you can support our work

Christ Church with St Mary's is a thriving Christian community, living and working in the Swindon area in the West of England.

Our Church is over 165 years old and has stood as a beacon on the hill through many changes from sleepy market town to thriving Railway centre and more lately to buzzing commercial and economic growth.

Through all this time, Christ Church has been sustained by its faithful friends, both within the church family and outside it. As well as offering traditional and modern worship, baptism, marriage, blessing and funeral services, we also work in the community providing chaplaincy, bereavement support, prayer ministry, support street pastors and by making home visits to those unable to get out and about.

While much of the money we raise goes towards our work in the local community, we also provide practical and financial support to a number of UK partner charities and to projects overseas.

This year we are also looking to raise funds towards our Development & Renewal programme. Our vision is that Christ Church, its community centre and burial grounds welcome growing numbers of people throughout the week. The renewal work that we undertake is guided by an overall strategy of creating sustainable, energy efficient, environmentally responsible buildings that are more cost effective to run. You can find out what we are planning to do in more detail, here Renewal Project Details

In the church, we will preserve and restore the original features of the building and enhance its capabilities to deliver excellent sound, lighting and visual experiences to both church goers and other visitors. It will provide a warm and adaptable space for worship, exhibitions, meetings and concerts and other public events, as well as remaining a place of peace and reflection. We believe that we have a responsibility to preserve it; not simply as a monument, but as a working, vibrant, educational and useful place - at the centre of the community.

To help us meet - and if possible increase - this giving commitment please take a moment to review some of our fund raising options using the links on the left of this page to see how you can help to support our work.

Donations can also be made by cheque to PCC of Christchurch (if you wish to explicitly support our Development programme please indicate this).

Any gifts we receive can usually be greatly enhanced by gift aid if you are a UK taxpayer. Click for more details on our Gift Aid scheme and Standing order forms. To see how you can turn £20 donation into 163;25 at no cost to yourself.
