IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON PARISH FINANCES

PARISH PLANNED GIVING SCHEME – Planned Giving envelopes for 2016/2017 are available for collection on this weekend. Envelopes are issued to those who have been using them regularly over the past year. If you would like to start using the envelopes, please complete a pledge card from the back of the church and place it in the box provided. 

The Planned Giving scheme is essential for the finances of the parish and we are very grateful to all who support the parish in this way. You may also like to consider giving by STANDING ORDER via your bank. One big advantage of this for the parish is that it keeps your donation remains constant even when you cannot be in church on a particular Sunday. 

Also, if you are a UK tax payer, please consider joining the GIFT AID SCHEME. For every £1 you contribute, the Government will give us an extra 20p at no extra cost to yourself. Last year, thanks to those who gift-aided their contributions, we received over £6,000 from the tax man!

Finally, while we need to be constantly looking for ways to improve our parish finances, we do not want anyone to give more money than they can afford. We are aware that many of you are affected very badly by the current economic climate. So please, do not feel under pressure to contribute more. Many thanks!
