Church Giving - How to Donate.
See our 2021 Gift Day leaflet to help you make your regular giving pledge for this year. There is also an accompanying letter and a pledge form.
There are a variety of ways in which we can all donate money to St Mary's. Our parish church needs regular income in order to meet its regular outgoings. However, all donations are greatly appreciated.
You can give as follows:
Parish Giving Scheme: This is our preferred method. It is safe and under your control. This is a direct debit scheme - you choose when your money leaves your account. You can review your giving at any time. Please ring 03330 002 1260 option 1 to set up or speak to our Treasurer for further information. All you need is our Parish Ref which is 140614077 and your personal details and your bank account details. The advantage is that they can give you an option to inflation-proof your giving. If you are able to gift aid they deal with that for us on a monthly basis.
Standing Order: We are moving away from standing orders. Once set up they are easy to forget and can fall behind the real value of money very easily. A regular payment from your bank account into the St Mary's Linton account (201719 90389277). This can be made weekly, monthly, quarterly or annually to suit your circumstances and can be gift aided if appropriate.

Weekly Giving Envelopes: Commit to giving a fixed amount each week, receive a set of envelope which can be put in the collection when you come to Church. Giving this way can be gift aided too.
Good box: The Church has recently acquired a card reader to enable card donations. Look out for it at the back of Church during services.
Loose plate collections: All of our collections at services provide valuable income to the Church.

Amazon Smile: Calling all Amazon users. Amazon have advised us of their fundraising service. By logging on through https://smile.amazon.co.uk/Church/1138508-0 you will receive the same Amazon service but with the added bonus that Amazon Smile will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price of eligible purchases. With the upcoming Christmas season this is a good opportunity to raise some funds for the Church without any cost yourself.
For all giving however small or infrequent if you are a taxpayer then please complete a gift aid form so we can recover the tax paid.
