Easy and Secure online giving
to our Parish
The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS)
There is now a simple and secure online way to set up a regular donation
by direct debit to our parish through the PGS.
Your giving helps fund all aspects of our budget
including the cost of clergy and the upkeep of our building.
Giving: One of the really important ways that each of us lives our faith and participates in the mission of the Church, is through the act of giving.
Regular giving: While there is joy in the spontaneity of a one-off gift when the Spirit moves us, it is regular giving that offers a prayerful expression of faith in action. Regular giving sustains our church and helps us to plan for the future. That is why we are members of the Parish Giving Scheme (PGS).
Safe and easy: The team at PGS makes it safe and easy for you to give regularly, and just as safe and easy for your church to receive. Every pound you donate will be put to Christian service in your community, free from time-consuming admin for church volunteers. All of your donation goes to St Peter’s Church; none is retained by the PGS.
Adjusting your giving: There’s also an option for you to increase your gift annually to keep pace with the rising cost of living, with the peace of mind that you can adjust your donation at any time if your circumstances change.
Gift Aid: If you are a UK taxpayer you can opt to add Gift Aid, increasing the value of your donation by 25%, which PGS will collect from HMRC on our behalf.
Donors who would like to make use of the new online service from PGS can simply visit
and follow a few simple steps to set up your donation securely.
Or by phone: Alternatively, you can set up your regular gift by phoning the PGS team on 0333 002 1271,
Monday to Friday, 9-5.
