Parish Giving

If you are a UK taxpayer, you could add 25p to every £1 that you give to this parish at no cost to yourself enabling us to reclaim the tax that you have paid on your donation.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid is a government scheme that allows your parish to reclaim the tax that you have paid on your donation.  It works like this.  If you are a taxpayer and you give £10 to your parish, you will have paid tax on that amount.  Your parish can get £2.50 back with Gift Aid, so your donation of £10.00 would become £12.50 and it wouldn’t cost you an extra penny!

Here are some examples of how much extra money your parish could get in just one year.

How do I go about signing a Gift Aid Declaration?

There are two ways you can go about signing a Gift Aid Declaration.  Contacting the Parish Administrator for a Gift Aid Declaration form (see details below).  Alternatively you can download the forms below.  When completed put the forms in an envelope marked Parish Administrator and drop it into the Parish Office.

Ask your Parish Administrator for a Gift Aid Form. It simply asks you to give your Name and Address and your consent so that all donations can be treated as Gift Aid Donations. You should sign and date the form.

Thank you for your generous support.
We would not be able to continue our work and mission, bringing people
closer to Jesus Christ through His Church, without the many people who
give their time, talents and financial contributions so generously to
support our parish, clergy and Church.
The unprecedented times we are currently going through have brought new
challenges for us all. Churches have had to close, and now thankfully
re-open but with limited capacity. Like many, our parish has felt the
pastoral and financial effects of the COVID19 pandemic.
Our Lord is always here for us all, and we will endeavour to always be
there for you through these challenging times. If you feel able, please
give generously to support our parish and mission.
