Donations

Thank you for considering giving to the Lord’s work and to the work of our church. 

Church Accounts

We have two church accounts. We have a General Account for the day-to-day running of our ministry.  We have a separate Development Account to support ongoing improvement and refurbishment work at our Church Building and at the Manse.

One Off Donation

If you would like to make a one-off donation to any of the accounts above, please send a cheque to our Treasurer at:

You can also make a one-off donation by paying directly into any one of our accounts using the following banking details.

Please get in touch with the Treasurer to let him know if you have made a donation. If you are a taxpayer and eligible for gift aid, you can also complete and send a Gift Aid Form which can be found below.  

Give Regularly

We would love you to donate to the work of the church and that of the wider kingdom of Christ on a regular basis. We encourage everyone to make their donation and givings to the church via a Standing Order. We would also encourage anyone who makes regular donations to the congregation via contributor’s envelope or in the plate to consider setting up a Standing Order instead. 

Standing Order Mandates for both our accounts can be found below and once completed they should be posted or handed in to your own bank.

Please get in touch with the Treasurer to let him know when you have set up a Standing Order, stating which account you wish to donate to. You are also encouraged to complete and send a Gift Aid Form which can be found below.

Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a scheme enabling UK registered charities to reclaim tax on a donation made by a UK taxpayer, effectively increasing the amount of the donation. The Scheme currently allows us to reclaim 20% in tax on every eligible donation made by a UK taxpayer.

A significant proportion of our annual income comes in through the Gift Aid Scheme. If you are a taxpayer, we would be very grateful if you would complete the Gift Aid Form below and send it to our Treasurer.  

Thank you.
