Many parishioners are asking how they can continue to support the parish financially in the absence of the weekly offering. At this difficult time parish income and cash flow is obviously going to suffer. Whilst expenses will also reduce, it is necessary to think about how the financial impact on our community can be minimized.
There are several ways you might choose to help:
Standing Orders, Bank Payments & Cheques
- Set-up a Standing Order to the parish (both Gift Aid and non-Gift Aid forms are available from Graeme.Bell@Cliftondiocese.com).
- For those who use internet banking, non-Gift Aid Standing Orders can be setup online without the need for a paper form, provided the parishioner has the parish’s bank account details. Please contact the Parish Office for bank details via the phone or email.
- If preferred, parishioners can send a cheque to the parish or make an electronic payment directly to the parish bank account. (See above)
If parishioners normally donate using a Gift Aid envelope, no matter which of the above methods they use, if they quote their name and GA Envelope No. (or it is possible to link a donation to a parishioner who has an existing Gift Aid Declaration) we should still be able to reclaim the tax paid on the donation.
We hope to have PayPal facilities set us shortly.
Thank you for your ongoing support at this time of crisis.
