Children's Liturgy at the 9.30 Sunday Mass
As part of our 9.30 am Family Mass we have Children’s Liturgy groups to help children understand God’s Word through Bible stories, music and craft activities. If you have a child / children who attend or would like to attend our Children’s Liturgy and you haven't yet registered for them to attend, please click on the PDF link to download the application form.

Planned Giving: Donating by Standing Order or by your Bank's App, with or without Gift Aid
If you would like to make a donation to St Mary Magdalen Church, either as a one-off donation
or a regular weekly or monthly donation by standing order, please download and complete the
'Planned Giving & Gift Aid' form by clicking on the named PDF icon. If you are a UK Tax Payer, either on income or just savings, you can Gift Aid your donation by downloading and completing the same form. Please complete the form and then return it to us so that we have a record of the Gift Aid declaration. There is also a separate from for our specific Restoration Fund called 'Building Together' - further details of this fund can be found in the download which contains a specific donation form.
If you would like to donate to St Mary Magdalen via standing order, please download the same donation form. The 'Planned Giving & Gift Aid' form can be used to notify us of a Standing Order you have set up yourself or can be returned to us so that we send it off to your bank for you.
Either way, if you are a UK tax payer, you can GIFT AID your standing order donation by filing in the Gift Aid form declaration contained in the Donation Form, this way you won't need to complete two separate forms. Please remember to return the form to the Parish Office so that we can keep a confidential record of the Standing Order, of your Banking App donation or of the Gift Aid Declaration. If you have any questions about what to do, please email the Parish Office, thank you.
