Easy and Secure online giving
to our Parish
The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS)
The PGS provides a simple and secure online way to set up a donation to our parish.
This can be a regular donation by direct debit or a one-off donation.
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. We may find joy in the spontaneity of a one-off gift when the Spirit moves us, or we may want to give regularly as a prayerful expression of faith in action. Regular giving sustains our church and helps us to plan for the future.
Safe and easy: The team at PGS makes it safe and easy for you to give, 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 from regular giving goes to St Peter’s Church; none is retained by the PGS. The Parish, however, pays a small transaction fee to cover the costs of processing a one -off gift.
Adjusting your giving: There’s also an option for you to increase your regular 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.
