Donate

Thank you for considering whether to give a donation to the parish. It costs nearly £3,500 a week to keep our churches going, and there are some big challenges ahead.

The parish has very few reserves and relies heavily on income from church letting. The current level of giving results in a significant annual deficit; and further funds are needed for the ministry of the church to develop.

Your donation will help St Clement and St James to grow. If you wish to pay by credit card, please click the link below:

Alternatively, for large donations, to save us the 1.6% administration fee, you may wish to contact Hannah, our Finance Officer, directly. She can arrange for an anonymous payment by bank transfer or cheque.

For regular giving, please download:

– the Parish Giving leaflet

– email Hannah for help setting up a Standing Order mandate. This is easily the best method for planned giving, as it saves time counting and banking cash. Alternatively, download a form for the Envelope scheme.

For further information about giving, please contact the Parish Office.

And please, if you are a tax payer, gift aid your giving, as this enables us to claim back at least 20% at no cost to yourself.
