An introduction to the Parish Giving Scheme

Why are regular donations so important to our Church?

The Church of England offers a Christian presence in every community. Together we seek to make this Christian presence the heart of all our cities, towns and villages: by our wonderful buildings; by worshipping together; by serving our communities and by sharing our faith and values. This valuable contribution to our community has a cost, of which 75% is met by personal donations. For our Church to survive and grow, we rely on regulardonations so that we can plan con dently for the future.

What is the Parish Giving Scheme?

The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) has been set up to help us best manage regular donations. It is run as a partnership between dioceses on a cost sharing basis.

How does it work?

Donations can be made on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis, by downloading, printing and completing the gift form and the Direct Debit instruction. Even though donations are made to the Parish Giving Scheme, they are

restricted to our parish, giving you peace of mind that your gift cannot be used elsewhere. Unlike a utility bill you are always in charge of what you give. Your gift will be passed back to our parish by the 10th of the month. Gift Aid will be received separately once the PGS has received it from HMRC. The unique feature of this scheme is theoption for you to commit in principle to increase your gift annually in line with in ation. Whilst this is a voluntarydecision, it is one that could potentially have a huge impact on the life and future of our church.

What are the main benefit?

The main bene ciary of this scheme will be our church. Through your generous commitment, we can be assured of a regular, tax-ef cient source of income which has the capacity to increase with the cost of living, yet involves virtually no administration. You will bene t from a system that is secure, con dential and easy to use, whilesupporting our church today and for the future.
