Giving to God through Christ Church
Recognising that giving happens in many ways, if you would like to give financially to God through Christ Church, there are different ways of doing this:
- Standing Order (our preferred option as this helps us to plan)
- Smaller donations may also be made in cash
We also seek to be tax efficient so, for example, for every £100 given by tax payers we aim to recover £25 from HMRC via the government’s Gift Aid scheme.
How To Give
If you would like to give to the church, it would be helpful if you would fill in one of our Giving Forms, which contains details of the church’s bank account for setting up standing orders and bank transfers. The form also includes a section for specifying your Gift Aid preferences. Please note that in order to qualify for Gift Aid, you must pay in any tax year, at least as much income or capital gains tax as your donation divided by 4.
Either download an emailable/printable Giving Form or collect one from the back of church.
Completion of a Giving Form enables us to correctly set up our records for your giving and is a legal requirement if we are to claim tax refunds on your donations via the Gift Aid scheme.
Your completed form may either be placed in the “Completed Donation/Giving Forms” box at the back of church or alternatively may be given or posted to our giving co-ordinator, Karen Walker. She will be happy to answer any queries, including any questions you may have regarding the Gift Aid scheme and may be emailed at [email protected].
