Helping Though Regular Giving
a better way to give to your church
During this restricted period caused by the Corvid-19 pandemic, church income has been severely reduced. Like everyone else, we have to pay our bills to keep our churches going.
You can help your church by making regular donations. Whether you are a regular attendee and want to pay your collection money through the bank, or you are a supporter who wants to help with, say an annual donation in memory of a loved one, a wedding aniversary or any other occasion, then this is the page for you.
Donations can be made on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis by Direct Debit using a
Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) gift form, and can be a much or as little as you like. Even though your donations are made to the PGS, they are restricted to the parish chosen by you,the donor, and cannot be used elsewhere.
The donation will be passed back to the parish of the donor's choosing by the 10th of the month. Gift Aid will be sent separately once PGS has received it from HMRC.
The unique feature of the scheme is the option for the donor to commit in principle to increase their 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 the church.
And now it is even easier with the launch of the new PGS telephone service - you can set up a regular Direct Debit gift by phone.
Please call PGS on their dedicated telephone number: 0333 002 1271
It is charged as a local phone call and if you have a telephone plan, it will be included. Lines are open Monday to Friday, between 9 – 5pm.
You will need to have your bank account details, church/parish name and PGS parish code to hand (available from Sylvia, the PGS representative for the Benefice).
