Parish Giving Scheme

This is an exciting new, free resource to help your church members plan their giving and, where appropriate do so tax efficiently.

The world is changing; most of us are not paid weekly in cash and most (but not all) have banks accounts, internet banking and plastic cards. How we give regularly to our church is also changing, not least because of shifting patterns of church attendance and our weekly giving envelopes cannot keep up. Take a huge step forward in nurturing planned giving by joining the new and exciting Parish Giving Scheme.

Monthly Reports:



“Since introducing the Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) our regular weekly giving has increased by almost 40% per donor. We kept it simple (which the CofE is guilty of not always doing) and just sent a letter to those we felt appropriate and then followed up with a reminder. That was all - oh and thank you letters to those who gave! It worked for us. Why not give it a try?”  David Fison, Butley Treasurer.
