Giving & Stewardship

Giving

 

A financial commitment to the church recognises the role All Saints’ plays in our lives and its broader role within the local community. We are encouraged to contribute in proportion to our ability.

Make your gift go further at no cost to you. As long as you are a UK taxpayer, All Saints’ can claim a further 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate. If you already give regularly but have not registered for Gift Aid, we encourage you to do so now! For 2018 we were able to claim £20,088 from HRMC which made a sizeable difference to our income.

For those who do not have access to printing facilities, the forms referred to are available from the back of the church on the finance table.

 

Regular donations

 

Regular donations allow All Saints' to make plans for the future with confidence.

If you do not already have a regular commitment to our church we hope you will consider one of the
following options:

  • Setting up a Standing Order Form with your bank (if you do this, please also let us know by emailing the Giving secretary parishgiving@allsaintsblackheath.org so we recognise your donations) OR
  • Placing cash or a cheque in our blue Gift Aid Donation envelopes which are in the pews

If you already give regularly but have not registered for you to do so by filling in the Gift Aid
declaration which you can download here.

 

 

 

One-off donations

 

If you would like to make a one-off donation perhaps to commemorate a special event, such as a baptism or wedding, or in memory of somebody close to you, you can make your donation online.

  • By making a bank transfer to:

ALL SAINTS BLACKHEATH
Sort code 20-98-57
Account number 00110396
Barclays Bank

  • Placing cash or a cheque in our blue Gift Aid Donation envelopes which are in the pews

We should be very grateful if we could claim gift aid on your donation by filling in the Gift Aid declaration which you can download here.

 

 

 

Gift Aid

 

 

If you are a UK tax payer, the church can claim an additional 25% on your donations through the HMRC Gift Aid scheme, at no cost to yourself if you pay sufficient tax at basic rate to cover the tax reclaimed on the donation by the church. In addition, you may benefit if you are a higher rate tax payer by having the amount taxed at higher rate reduced by the amount of the donation, and taxed at basic rate instead. In order for us
to do this we will require a Gift Aid declaration form which you can download here.
