Please remember that this donation only covers your weekly offering to our Parish and will be counted for your Gift Aid, it does not include second collections, Christmas or Easter offering to the Clergy.

If you cannot Gift Aid, you may still make your donation to our Parish in this way if you wish to do so.
‘Gift Aid – the good way to give to your Church’
Gift Aid is an arrangement that allows charities, including churches, to reclaim tax on donations made by a taxpayer. It covers weekly giving as well as one-off donations.
This means that every donation you make is worth 25% more to your Church, at no cost to you.
For example, if you donate £20, we will be able to reclaim £5 on your donation from the government, meaning the Church gets £20 from you and £5 from the government.
If you’re already paying tax on earnings, pensions or income/capital gains from investments, the government simply gives back to the Church some of the tax you have already paid. We don’t need to know your personal details such as income, nor your National Insurance number. Your donations will qualify as long as they’re not more than 4 times the tax you have paid in that tax year (6 April to 5 April).
All you have to do is complete a simple form called a Gift Aid Declaration with your name and address. Please kindly leave your gift aid declaration form with Fr. Philip or send via the church email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please help us to make the most of this scheme to benefit our Church.
We are now able to offer online method of payment which you can also give you the option to donate to other services that you support.
