From the Treasurer: 

Support St Thomas's!

During the Suspension of Services, we are still responsible for the expenses of the church including the Chaplain’ salary & social security, 

rent and accommodation expenses.

We would ask that your regular giving is continued during these difficult times . . . Most Church Members in Crete prefer to make cash donations and I can meet people in Kalyves and issue a Cash Receipt on behalf of the Church.


Payments can also be made in Euros to the Chaplaincy Euro Account or GBP to our account in the Diocese Office in London with the option of Gift Aid
