Giving your Money

St Mary’s relies on giving by its congregation to fund everything it does. We believe that everything we have comes from God. We want to do what he wants with all areas of our lives, including our money.

There are a number of ways to give to St Mary’s:

 

Online Banking (Standing Order and One-Off Gifts)
If you have access to Online Banking, this is an easy way to give, either by Standing Order for Regular Giving, or BACS Transfer for a One-Off Gift. Regular giving via Standing Order is great for us as it helps with our planning and budgeting.

 

Please let us know if you set one up, so we can record your giving correctly. St Mary’s’ bank details are:

 

Bank: NatWest

Sort code: 60-04-04

Account number: 19251335

Debit/Credit Card

If it’s simpler to do, you can set up regular and one-off card payments here.

Please note that we are charged a small transaction fee for each payment, though we can also claim Gift Aid at the point of donation.

 

Text Giving

If you would like to give by text please text 70070. Start your message with MARY10 followed by £ and the amount you’d like to give (up to £10). You will be charged your normal SMS rate plus the amount you donate – we receive 100% of your donation. If you’re a UK taxpayer you can also add gift aid your donation by clicking on the link in the reply text you receive.

 

Giving in the Sunday collections

We have collections at all of our services.  If you’re a UK taxpayer and give in this way, please complete a gift aid envelope that can be found on your chair.

 

Payroll giving

Some employers will match your giving to charities. Give as You Earn is often administered by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF).  St Mary’s CAF reference number is 282264.

 

Gift Aid

Whichever way you choose to give to St Mary’s, if you’re a UK taxpayer please complete a gift aid form. Gift Aid is a simple way to increase the value of your gift – at no extra cost to you. If you pay tax in the UK, we can reclaim the basic rate tax (25%) on your gift.
