Parish Giving Scheme

Regular donations provide your church with reliable and predictable income, which helps when planning ahead for ministry and mission, or building projects and repairs. 

Parish Giving Scheme is a national charity, which enables regular giving to any parish church, through Direct Debit, with no cost to the church or the giver.  Although similar to standing or banker's order donations, there are lots of advantages to joining Parish Giving Scheme.  

NB You can run these in parallel; there is no immediate need to move existing regular donors to Parish Giving Scheme.

Heritage and Community Giving Resources 

Our congregation and church members are the most likely to support ministry and mission, but there will be many people in your local community and beyond who are also keen to donate money to the church, whether they attend services or not. 

When we think about our place of worship, we tend to focus on the regular attendee's donations. But for many people, there are other personal or pragmatic reasons for giving.  

Our churches are community centres; they can offer friendship through coffee mornings, or toddler groups or families may be interested in continuing traditions by having a christening or other special life event at the local church. Equally, some may see the historical importance of our buildings and part of our country's history and culture for future generations to enjoy. 

Make it easy for people in your community to support the church, by asking them to give online.
