There are many ways in which we can contribute to the life of the church.
However as we are all too aware, we do need financial contributions to continue to run our church buildings and promote our community and outreach work.
This video shows some of the things we are doing across our communities with Love Banwell, Love Congresbury, Church events and schools and youth work.
There are several ways to donate to the churches or to our highlighted causes.

For many years St Andrew’s, Congresbury has supported two children through the charity Toybox, a charity committed to ending the global injustice of children living and working on city streets. Toybox began when a couple were prompted by their Christian faith and decided to act. Today they continue, motivated by that same Christian faith, to see a world in which no child is forced to live or work on the streets.
St Andrew’s support of two children costs £36 per month (£18 per child per month). We ask members who wish to contribute, to donate £1 per month, paid to the Church account annually (£12). This means that we need 36 members to participate to cover the cost. In 2019 we had 32 individual donors and we thank them for their generosity. Any amount not covered by donations is paid by the Church.
Due to the pandemic we did not collect contributions from members in 2020, meaning that the Church covered the entire cost. As Church finances are limited, we are asking members that have donated in the past to please make their contributions for 2021. If you are also able to give something to defray the costs paid during 2020, that would be greatly appreciated.
This, of course, is not just open to St. Andrew’s, Congresbury. Anyone from Banwell who wishes to donate is very welcome and shows a sense of unity between the two churches and New Creation
Cash or cheques (please mark them as being for Toybox) can be given to your Church @ Home coordinator to be passed on to Beth Ashton-Hilton, Treasurer, or dropped through the letterbox at 14 Weetwood Road, Congresbury BS49 5BN.
