DONATIONS

and GIVING

Wallet with cards

Generous God
In response to the infinite generosity that God has lavished upon us, we strive to be a generous church in all that we do. We believe that honouring God through our finances and giving him the “first fruits” of our labour is a really important part of following Him. 

Through our giving we partner with God to enable the work of his Kingdom here on earth.

Opportunities for Giving
Whether you would like to make a one-off donation or give regularly, you can choose which area of ministry you would like your gift to support.
If you don’t have a preference then giving to the General Fund supports the general expenses and hidden costs of running a busy church.

Gift Aid
If you pay Income Tax, then by gift-aiding your gift you increase its value to the church by 25%. Please make sure you complete a Gift Aid form.

Ways to Give
Our preferred way for you to give is by a standing order (for those who want to give regularly) or a bank transfer (BACS) for one-off donations or payments. 

This is because the online giving platform we use charges us a 3% fee for processing your donation and the gift aid associated with it. So for every £100 you donate using the Give Now button we only receive £97, or just over £121 if you Gift Aid it.

Online – you can give through your bank using the sort code and account number details below (preferred method).
             – you can also give online using the Give Now button.
Standing Order – you can complete a Standing Order form and send this to your bank.
Gift Aid form – you can fill this out online or print one out and send it to the Parish Office. (It’s part of the Standing Order form.)

Sunday giving – there is an opportunity to give during our Sunday services by card, cash or cheque.

Repair and Build for the Future

In 2020, St. Peter's Church was 180 years old. Those of us worshipping here today are benefiting from the stewardship and care of previous generations. We want to make sure that St. Peter's is ready to provide a gospel platform for the next 180 years and for future generations of worshippers.
These funds will ensure we can (1) replace the link corridors, providing a welcoming rear entrance and (2) carry out structural repairs to the tower so that we may once again ring our eight bells.
