The PCC of St Mark's is registered as a charity and relies on the generosity of its Church Family members for most of its income. This is how we are able to resource our mission and ministry, becoming more and more like the church of our vision.
There are several ways people can give financially to the Church:
at services as part of the collection
regular planned giving, such as a standing order
Planned giving has two main advantages. Firstly, it allows the church to plan ahead with much more certainty. Secondly, tax payers are able to make a Gift Aid declaration, enabling the Church to recover the standard rate of income tax on each donation. Currently this means that the Church receives an extra £25 for every £100 donated.
If you would like to become a member of the Planned Giving Scheme, please contact Tim Dauncey, the scheme co-ordinator, who deals with all matters to do with giving in complete confidence. Tim's number is 01892 543212.
If you would like to give a one-off gift, you will still be eligible to claim Gift Aid if you are a tax payer. Simply place it in the envelope in the pew on which there is a declaration form.
