From Rev'd Ainsley Swift, Vicar St Michael's Bray
5th December 2023
We give to the church to register our gratitude for all the glories of our existence and the mercies of God’s grace. That’s why we have a church – to express our gratitude, to make known the wonder of God, and to embody God’s ways in our community and society more generally. We also strive to maintain the church as the centre of our community; imagine the emptiness if it was lost.

- You have the option to index-link your giving, which means you will be helping the church with the ever-increasing costs we all have to cope with.

You can sign up to PGS at www.parishgiving.org.uk or by ringing 0333 002 1260, in both cases please be sure to quote the reference for our parish, which is 270627369.
With many thanks and every blessing as we, together, build the church in Bray.
