Donations

Every donation makes a big difference

St George’s is open every day.  Preserving  this beautiful building for the community, heating it during the winter and supporting the wide-ranging ministry and distinctive worship of St George’s requires strong financial support.

While we are blessed in many ways, our regular costs exceed our regular income. The best way to help is to join our regular Planned Giving scheme – contact us for details.

St George’s also has a sponsorship scheme, under which you can target an individual gift to help meet some of our costs.

There are a number of ways to give to St. George’s.

Regular Planned Giving

Regular giving by envelope or standing order is an easy way to give and helps the church with its planning. If you would like to know more about Planned Giving, please contact Nick Startup, via the church office. If you use internet banking you can set up regular giving yourself or use the donation button below.

One-off gifts

You can give by cheque (made payable to St. George’s PCC) or you can make a one-off bank transfer directly to St. George’s bank account email the office for details).

Giving in the Sunday collections

We have collections at all of our services. If you’re a UK taxpayer and give in this way, please complete a gift aid envelope that can be found at the pew.
