Giving Envelopes and Standing Orders
It will soon be time to distribute new sets of weekly planned giving envelopes to our current givers. Many of our church members use these to help them to give regularly for the ministry of the church. If you currently give by putting cash on the plate or in the one-off white Gift Aid envelopes, you might find it helpful to use envelopes instead.
Alternatively, a lot of people now use standing orders to give to church, which is secure and reduces the amount of cash we have to count and bank. In both cases, taxpayers can increase the value of their regular giving by 25% by filling in a single Gift Aid form.
- If you would like to start using weekly giving envelopes, contact Val Vose via the church office email: email@example.com
