The Parish Giving Scheme is a new way of giving to the church, enabling people to give by direct debit with gift aid being automatically processed by the Parish Giving Scheme every month saving the church considerable time and improving cash flow. Givers can also choose to increase their giving automatically by the rate of inflation every year.
Our diocese has joined 20 others which have already adopted it, and all are seeing increases in giving as a result. Our Church Council is considering joining, as this could help to alleviate our financial concerns. Anybody interested in learning more is welcome to attend a presentation by Jonathan Farnhill, Director of Generous Giving for the Oxford Diocese, at 7pm on Tuesday 20th March at All Saints’ Church, Bisham.
If the Church Council decides to participate, further information will be available at the AGM on the 17th April, when there will also be a first opportunity to sign up.
