Giving

Financial giving is part of our worship to God and this is one way in which we thank Him for His provision. 

By giving back to God through the church we enable His work to be done in our community and beyond. 

We recognise that everything we have comes from God and so we give back to him in gratitude and joy for His blessings towards us.

The Parish Giving Scheme

We use the Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) where donations can be made on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. Forms and an Information Pack are available on the welcome desk or by emailing the office. Even though donations are made to the Parish Giving Scheme, they are restricted to our parish, giving you peace of mind that your gift cannot be used elsewhere. Unlike a utility bill you are always in charge of what you give.

Your gift will be passed back to our parish by the 10th of the month. Gift Aid will be received separately once the PGS has received it from HMRC. The unique feature of this scheme is the option for you to commit in principle to increase your gift annually in line with inflation.  Whilst this is a voluntary decision, it is one that could potentially have a huge impact on the life and future of our church.

What are the main benefits?

The main beneficiary of this scheme will be our church. Through your generous commitment, we can be assured of a regular, tax-efficient source of income which has the capacity to increase with the cost of living, yet involves virtually no administration. You will benefit from a system that is secure, confidential and easy to use, while support our church today and for the future.
