God loves a cheerful giver
2 Cor. 9:7
At St. Chad’s Church we seek to be ‘Christ, inside and out.’ Our regular members know that we need to resource that vision, and our church family contribute to our vision in many ways, one of which is financially. (Please look at the rest of our website to see other ways of joining in).
Being a registered charity means that we can benefit from the government’s Gift Aid scheme for any donations from a taxpayer. (If you’re not a taxpayer then we cannot claim Gift Aid). Below are several ways of giving to St. Chad’s, but if you are a taxpayer then please make sure you Gift Aid your giving to make the most out of your money. (We are able to claim back the tax you have paid on your gift – that’s 25p in every £1 which makes a substantial difference to us.)
How you can help to resource the vision:
The very best way regular members of our church can give is by setting up a Standing Order. It’s easy, regular and includes the Gift Aid option. Click here for our Standing Order form.
You can give through your employer’s payroll giving scheme (not all employers run this scheme, so you would need to ask your Human Resources Team if they run it). Again, make sure you Gift Aid your giving if you are entitled to do that.
You can give directly through your internet banking. This can also be used for ‘one off’ giving options such as for a disaster appeal. If your gift is a ‘one off’ please put details of that in the reference part of the transfer. Our church bank details are:
Saint Chad’s Church Parochial Church Council

You can join our Envelope Regular Giving Scheme. This can also be Gift Aided, but it is a less effective and more cumbersome way of claiming Gift Aid. That said, some people do prefer to give this way, especially those who are not taxpayers and therefore cannot Gift Aid their giving. Contact our Gift Aid Secretary, Fiona Roy, here to sign up to this scheme.
Regular giving is a testimony to our faith and a matter of the heart between God and the individual, but we believe at St. Chad’s that together we can make a difference. Being responsible with our finances is just one way we can achieve that.
If you need any help or have any questions, please contact our Churchwarden, Bob Crowther.
Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows
generously will also reap generously.
Thank you for helping us to be, ‘Christ, inside and out’.
