Thank-you for considering donating to the work of St. Georges. Money goes to our activities to reach out into the community: to work with the schools, to provide youth groups, to host community fun days, to provide a hall for uniformed groups and toddler groups, to provide social clubs, and to encourage people to explore Christianity, as well as for running the church itself.
Donating to St. George’s Church There are a number of ways you can do this:
1. Regular giving by Standing Order You will need to contact your bank to get their form for setting up Standing Orders. Please fill in the details of your bank account and set up the Standing Order to St Georges Church, Sort Code 40-52-40, Account Number 00030405.
2. Weekly giving envelopes We can provide you with a numbered set of envelopes, pre-printed with the date of each Sunday through the year, for you to donate your chosen amount by cash or cheque into the collection plate at the back of church each Sunday. The envelopes are not identified (other than by “your” number, which is known only to the Treasurer and Bookkeeper). Please contact the office if you are interested in this method of giving.
3. Ad-hoc donations We provide pre-printed collection envelopes (yellow envelopes) in church for you to use to put your gift in the collection plate at the back of church. The envelopes allow you to fill in your name and address so we can claim the gift-aid (see below), but there is no need to fill in these details if you don’t want us to claim gift aid on your donation.
Please make any cheques out to St Georges Church In any of the above cases, if you pay tax in the UK, you can increase the amount St George’s receives by filling in a Gift Aid declaration. Provided you pay enough tax to cover the amount we would reclaim, St George’s can claim this tax back from the UK Government as Gift Aid, which increases the amount of your giving by 25 % at no extra cost to you. If you are able to Gift Aid your giving, please complete the Gift Aid declaration from the link below. and return it to the office.
