‘Parish Funding Campaign’ during the Covid-19 lockdown, June – October 2020.
If you press this button just above you can give online to St. Andrew’s church. It will also allow you to gift aid your amount to make it go much further, it can issue a receipt too.
Updates from August 2020.
We are writing to thank everyone who has joined in for your generosity in setting up a regular donation or a one off donation to St Andrew’s Church. Even before we were obliged to close the Church because of Covid 19 and to cancel all fund-raising activities our Church funds were critically low and without the support of donations from members of our community like yourself, the Church will not be able to remain open.
We are pleased to tell you that our ‘Planned Giving’ campaign has already yielded an annual amount of £4590 in new regular giving together with £1837.50 in ‘one off’ donations. On-line donations have also added nearly £90 and these figures include the additional £25% from tax payers which we have been able to claim back via Gift Aid.
The total of these generous gifts means that we have raised almost two-thirds of our annual expenditure for this year and guarantees approximately half the amount required going forward. We aim to increase these amounts in order to ensure the long-term future of worship and witness at St Andrew’s.
Thank you again for your contributions!!
Here at St. Andrew’s Church we are embarking on a much needed funding campaign.
We will be writing in the June edition of the Parish Magazine, writing to residents in the Parish (parishioners) and using our social media, to help share our concerns and financial situation, to invite your kindness, and your support as we look to provide for the future of St. Andrew’s Church in our village.
You can find a copy of our letters and information booklet just below to read and to consider your support.
Increasing the amount of regular, weekly or monthly donation using gift-aid is our goal during our campaign. Particularly while we are unable to run events, services, cafes etc.., The ongoing life and ministry of the church rests as always on the goodwill and generosity, time and talents of everyone around.
If you would like to explore regular giving we can help you, or if you would prefer to make a one off donation during this campaign, or at any time, we have a button just at the bottom of the page to help you.
