Parish Giving Scheme
It may surprise you to know that most of St Michael’s Church’s income comes, not from church collections or fund-raising events, but from the private bank accounts of the many churchgoers and others who give regularly through the Parish Giving Scheme.
The Parish Giving Scheme provides a professional, secure, and highly effective way of supporting your church in Pirbright. The Scheme:
§ collects your donations by Direct Debit
§ claims any Gift Aid due
§ passes your gift to St Michael’s with Gift Aid added
§ holds your personal data centrally (i.e. your data are NOT held by the parish)
§ provides options to:
· gift-aid your donations
· give monthly, quarterly or annually
· remain anonymous if you wish
· increase your donations automatically in line with inflation
There are two ways to register with the Parish Giving Scheme to become a regular donor to St Michael’s:
· By telephone using the new Parish Giving Scheme telephone sign-up service, quoting our parish PGS ref number, 170617204.
For further information about the Scheme please contact Andrew King, the PGS representative for Pirbright, at this email address or by telephone at 01483 474913.
