The day-to-day running of St Peter’s Church is funded almost entirely through the generous and sacrificial giving of our church congregation and friends. If you would like to help with this financial support, there is a number of ways to give.
- Setting up a standing order for a fixed amount each month, quarter or annually.
- By cheque on an occasional basis. Cheques should be made payable to Newnham Church and sent to the vicar, marked for the attention of the church treasurer.
- Joining the Parish Giving Scheme (PGS). This scheme is operated by the Diocese of Gloucester on our behalf. It allows you to give regularly and is particularly beneficial if you are a taxpayer, as the church can recover tax paid on your donation as Gift Aid. There is also provision to automatically increase your giving each year by the rate of inflation but this is optional and your choice.
Of the three options given above, we would commend the third one using the Parish Giving Scheme. It is entirely flexible and you are always in control. It can be increased if you wish at any time or, if your circumstances change, reduced or cancelled without penalty.
Whichever method you use, it helps us to recover tax on your donation if you Gift Aid it provided you are a UK taxpayer. Further details can be obtained from the treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is also an easy way for you to help us raise funds – simply by shopping online!
