The Church of England offers a Christian presence in every community. Together we seek to make this Christian presence the heart of all pour cities, towns and villages: by our wonderful buildings; by worshipping together; by serving our communities and by sharing our faith and values. This valuable contribution to our community has a cost, of which 75% is met by personal donations. For our church to survive and grow, we rely on regular donations so that we can plan confidently for the future.
Please put your money in a box in the church (inside a Gift Aid envelope if you are a UK tax payer). Contact the Office for more information 01752 844456 [email protected].
The scheme is a centrally run (non-profit), professional system that offers a simple way for people to make regular donations to their parishes. (www.parishgivingscheme.org.uk).
Donations can be made on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis via Direct Debit to the Parish Giving Scheme (PGS). Even though donations are made to the PGS, they are restricted to our parish and unlike a utility bill, you are always in charge of what you give. The parish is paid the donations and the Gift Aid monthly.
The advantages for the parish are no more local administration, timely Gift Aid payments and the ability to plan ahead knowing the amount of money coming in.
The advantages for the donor are no more scrabbling around for change on a Sunday morning and the ability to easily increase your donation in line with inflation (if you wish).
Forms can be found at the back of each church or contact the Office 01752 844456 [email protected].
