Ways to Give

'For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has,

not according to what one does not have. '​

2 Corinthians 8:12

Balancing the Books

Managing the finances of a church is not that different to managing our own finances at home, just on a rather different scale. ​ We have regular bills to pay such as utilities and insurance, materials to buy, buildings to maintain and grounds to care for. Our church building has seen many years go by and sometimes can show its age; hopefully, leaky roofs will not be a concern for some years after the recent repairs but we still need to be prepared for other maintenance needs and yes, rainy days. ​

In order to keep our church at the centre of village life, with a safe, secure building and a warm welcoming community that supports village life and the wider church, we need to maintain a regular income to ensure we can pay the bills, fix and enhance our church building and prepare for any future leaks. That means relying on the generosity of people from our congregations, village communities and often further afield, to give what they can, when they can. ​

There are a number of ways to give financial support to our church, to suit you and your circumstances. If you are a UK tax payer you can increase the amount you give by using a recognised gift aid scheme. This allows us to reclaim an extra 25% of the money you give from HM Revenue and Customs, without you doing anything. ​

We welcome regular planned giving, as this allows us to budget for the longer term, knowing how much income we are likely to receive over the year.

Cash(less) Giving

Putting money in the Sunday collection is a very traditional and cherished practice for many but recent events and the prolonged closure of our church for major refurbishment means there have been no opportunities for this.

​​Whilst cash donations are still very welcome we would prefer alternative ways of giving to be considered at this time.

Via the Bank

Standing orders are a simple, convenient and secure way of giving, which do not rely on you having cash available in your pocket, nor being physically present in church. They can be set monthly, quarterly or yearly.

​If you want to give occasionally, when the time suits you, then one-off BACS transfers may be more appropriate.


Online giving is normally associated with charity fundraising events and sponsorship. But there is no need to run a marathon in fancy dress, you can give a donation via your bank at any time.

Leave a Legacy

A gift in your will can leave a lasting legacy for generations to come. Our church relies on regular giving to cover the everyday running costs but one-off donations can be used to help us achieve larger projects.

£1 + 25% = £1.25

£2 + 25% = £2.50

£3 + 25% = £3.75

£10 + 25% = £12.50

If you are planning to make, or are already making, regular offerings and are a UK tax payer, please consider completing a Gift Aid Declaration so that the church can claim an additional 25% of your contribution from HMRC.
