Your giving is what enables St Paul’s to carry out all its services and work in the community. Everything that happens here is carried by the prayers, volunteering and the giving of our congregation and friends. Giving – in gifts and acts of service – is at the heart of all we do as a church. All the gifts we receive, large and small and however they reach us, are hugely appreciated and make a difference.
Here are some of the ways in which you may decide to give to St Paul's:
If you are happy to give a regular amount in the form of a direct debit or standing order:
Direct debit is our preferred method for giving, and we would encourage everyone to use this if they are able to do so. We have a new arrangement via the Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) to which our Diocese subscribes, which makes setting up a direct debit very easy indeed. There is no administration charge deducted. You can choose to allow the amount donated to be automatically updated for inflation, which is a great help for us. There is also a choice to donate weekly, monthly, or annually; and an option to give anonymously if you wish. UK taxpayers can tick a box asking for the PGS to claim tax back from the government through Gift Aid which increases what the church receives. It is very easy to set up online, at:
Your direct debit via the Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) can also be set up by phone or post; please ask us if you would like help with this. For further information on how the Parish Giving Scheme works, please see this short (1 minute) video.
Alternatively you can set up a standing order with your bank. If you do this by online banking you will need our bank details:
Account name: PCC St Paul
Account number: 41649990
Sort Code: 60-20-09
Address: NatWest Bank plc,153 Putney High Street, London, SW15 1RX
Again, if you pay UK income tax, we can claim Gift Aid contributions from the government, so we would be grateful if you would also fill in and return the form: Gift Aid Declaration 1pg.pdf
To set up a standing order by post, please complete the Standing Order Mandate Form below and return it to your bank: Standing Order Form.pdf
If you want to give a one-off donation via the St Paul's website:
Please follow this secure link to donate easily and quickly via the website: https://pay.churchdesk.com/aK97SvB27
We are able to accept donations securely using most major debit and credit cards including Mastercard, Visa and American Express. A Gift Aid option will be available. Please note there will be a small administration charge of 2.6% + £0.20 per transaction levied by our payment provider on donations made via the website.
If you want to give a one-off contribution via bank transfer using online banking:
You can use our bank account details and, if appropriate, allow us to claim Gift Aid using the link to the Gift Aid form above.
If you want to give a one-off donation using a cheque or cash:
Please place your gift in a sealed envelope using either a pre-printed one available in church, or one of your own addressed to The Treasurer. You can either hand it to a member of the clergy or lay team at one of our services, or put it through the secure letterbox at St Paul’s Community Centre, 23 Inner Park Road, London SW19 6ED. Cheques only (not cash) can also be posted to The Parish Office, c/o St Paul’s Community Centre, 23 Inner Park Road, London SW19 6ED.
If you are in church you can also use the secure Donations box by the door or you can use our cardreader with a debit or credit card and choose the amount you want to give.
Again, if you are a UK taxpayer we would be grateful if you could print off the GiftAid form, fill it in and enclose it with the gift, so we can claim an extra GiftAid contribution. Gift Aid Declaration 1pg.pdf
