Parish Funding

The cost of running our Parish is around £5,600 each and every week. The cost of unexpected repairs and maintenance also needs to be covered. We don’t receive any regular financial support from any external organisations.

Please consider whether you are able to give a regular amount. A regular gift allows us to plan for the future because it gives us a steady income that we can rely on.

By giving to the Cathedral in this way you too are helping support our mission here in the heart of Leeds. Whether you attend here regularly or just occasionally, whether on a Sunday or a weekday, please do consider whether you are able to help us financially.

Thank you!

Standing Orders

A standing Order is still the best and most cost-effective way to ensure the Parish benefits from whatever regular giving you can afford. You can use the pre-printed forms in the downloads on this page or perhaps set this up via your own telephone/internet banking.
