The simplest way to give is to set up a standing order with your bank. You are easily in control of what you give. At any time, you can increase it, add additional amounts or cancel. A regular donation allows us to budget and helps with our cash flow forecast. If you wish to give a one off gift as a bank transfer you can use these same details.

The direct debit scheme is run by Guildford Diocese on behalf of the Parish saving us administration on claiming Gift Aid. The scheme offers the option for your payments to be increased every year in line with inflation. You will need to pick up a pack from church because hard copies must be completed and posted. Online sign up is not yet available however we are expecting this to be launched early next year. Once available it will allow you to completely manage your PGS account online. Read more on Parish Giving Scheme website. To inform PGS of any changes see here.

Giving by card is an area we are exploring and we are really looking forward to sharing more about this over the coming months. We want to make giving as easy and straightforward as possible whether that’s in a service, at a fundraising event or paying for things such as tickets.
Example: You donate £100 to the Church. The Church claims Gift Aid from the government to make your donation £125. That is wise, tax-efficient giving. (If you are a higher rate tax payer you can personally claim back tax on your gift)
