Dear Friends,

As you know, our wonderful curate Reverend Gemma is moving on from us next month to become the next Rector of Moreton, Woodsford and Crossways with Tincleton. Rev Gemma’s final church service will be on Sunday 20 June. We know that many of you will wish to contribute to a leaving gift for Gemma. The Paypal church collections account is managed by churchwardens and treasury team. We would like to encourage you to contribute via PayPal if you can.

There are 3 ways in which you can contribute to the retirement collection for Julie:

1.    If you already have a personal Paypal account, simply just click on the following link, click on ‘Send’, enter the amount you would like to contribute, and when prompted sign into your personal Paypal account.                                                      

2.    If you do not have a Paypal account and have not sent money on Paypal before you can still make your contribution through Paypal direct to the church collections account without charge using a bank debit or credit card. Please click on the Donate button below and select ‘Donate with a Card’  to donate a contribution in the same way as you would pay for online purchases.


3. If you are not able to contribute this way, please drop a sealed envelope with cash or cheques made payable to “PCC of Finchampstead and California” marked “Revd Gemma collection” through the letter box of the Parish office.

As there is just a short time before Rev Gemma leaves us, do please make your contribution as soon as you can.

If you have any questions about this do please direct them to or contact the church office.

With best wishes,
Rob, Joy, Marjorie, Ashlyn, Lucia and Paul
Your Churchwardens.
