FundingSupport St. James Church
Our Church is entirely self supporting and self financing. We do not receive any income or grants from the Church of England or other bodies. We rely entirely on the generosity of our members and on donations.
We have to finance the day-to-day running of the Church and all its activities, and maintain our beautiful building for our own and future generations.
St. James Church and the Cemetery play a vital part in the English speaking community of Northern Portugal, regardless of religious belief. It serves the whole community in many different ways. Please help us to continue our Christian mission and to keep our Church strong and secure.
