Saint Michael and All Angels, Tettenhall

“Serving Christ at the heart of the community”

Charities which now, or recently, have received the support of the parish



While the members of St. Michael’s church are keen to demonstrate Christian values within a local context, they are also committed to being part of a much broader, world-wide community. Such commitment gives direction to their charitable giving and consequently charities both at home and overseas are supported financially and with prayers throughout the year.

Each month a different charity is remembered during our Sunday morning service and a donation made from church funds to support their work. The charities are very different, this diversity demonstrating our perspective on the world as much as our willingness to engage positively with communities and groups beyond our immediate locality. The list of charities and the amount granted is reviewed annually by the church’s Charitable Giving Committee.

In addition to our monthly giving, at Christmas we make special donations to the Children’s Society and each May members of the congregation carry out house-to-house collections as part of a nation-wide effort in support of Christian Aid. Special events are organised to raise money for specific charities and occasionally, after Sunday morning worship, we have a retiring collection in response to a clearly identifiable immediate need.

It would be easy to dismiss as insignificant the amounts of money which we are able to give to charity. However, though small, we recognise the vital part they play to ensure the continued good health of our church community. Common sense tells us that we can’t put right all the ills of the world but by the act of giving, both financially and through prayer, we demonstrate our sympathy for ‘good action’ and thereby open our hearts and minds to what exists beyond what is obvious.
