This Church relies on the planned giving by the regular congregation. Our church receives no grants, no subsidies; it is dependent upon its members’ contributions.
It costs approximately £250 a day to keep St Thomas à Becket Church open and running. This figure would be considerably higher if it wasn’t for the generous giving of time and talents by so many volunteers within the parish.
Please consider prayerfully how you might be able to financially support your church.
There are a number of ways to participate in planned regular giving.
- PARISH GIVING SCHEME
This is a direct debit scheme for regular giving to the church, whether you are in attendance or not. Donations can be made on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. Please click the link: www.parishgiving.org.uk for further information.
One advantage of this scheme is that any associated gift aid is paid back to us almost immediately, saving a lot of administrative time.
There is also an added advantage in that it is possible to sign up for an inflation option, which means that donations are increased annually in line with inflation.
- STANDING ORDERS
Monthly, quarterly or annual donations can be made to our church by setting up a Standing Order through your bank. Please contact Trudi Kearsley: email@example.com or banking details.
- ENVELOPE SCHEME
If you sign up for this scheme you will be supplied with a set of dated envelopes. Each week you put your donation into the envelope and then pass it on to the church.
Please remember, if you are a taxpayer, your donation can be increased by 25p in every £, by filling in a gift aid declaration.
For more information about planned giving, please speak to Trudi Kearsley; firstname.lastname@example.org
