God loves a cheerful giver
2 Corinthians 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. Here is a Standing Order form. NB when completing this form please complete it fully. This will enable us to claim Gift Aid, where applicable.
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 internet banking. Our church bank details for regular giving are:
Saint Chad’s Church Parochial Church Council
Barclays Bank PLC
Address: Romford & Barking Group
PO BOX 1006
Sort code: 20-25-19 Account Number: 73788792
NB please use your name as a reference on your payment. This will enable us to claim Gift Aid, where applicable.
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 church office 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.
