Giving Article

We see giving as an important expression of our trust in God, a joyful response to His love for us which enables us to grow in faith.

Read our recent 'Serve' leaflet to find out more about how you can get behind our vision.

Regular giving: The work of St Paul's is funded through the generosity of members of the church family, so we encourage regular giving. Almost 90% of giving at St Paul’s is via a Standing Order, or a similar arrangement. This enables givers to directly control their regular contributions and assists us with our financial planning. Please download a Bankers Order.

Gift Aid: UK tax payers can usually make a Gift Aid Declaration so St Paul’s can claim a further 25% of each gift from the Government. Please download a Gift Aid Declaration Form.

Wills: You may also consider making a gift to St Paul’s via your will. Legacies can be one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can continue to support mission and ensure the Gospel is preached to future generations here. The development of St Paul’s new community Hub is the direct result of a generous legacy.  Wills can be a very effective and tax-efficient way of giving, and they are relatively easy and inexpensive to arrange. Unless you indicate to the contrary a proportion of your gift will be onward given. For more information visit
