Can you help us in our - Christ Church - 'A Warm Welcome' appeal? through Just Giving?
The Boiler & Bells Appeal for Christ Church Prestatyn, which we hope will also include some decorative repair and signage improvement too. We estimate the likely cost to be around £30,000 and so far the congregation has raised £5,000 towards this.
Ways in which you can support your Church:
A WAY TO HELP SECURE THE FUTURE OF YOUR CHURCH
We believe that Gift Direct is the most efficient, effective way you can be generous to your church. Gift Direct has many benefits, both for the church and donor:
- It improves cash flow as the gifts and the tax relief come into the church bank account each month - It reduces the administrative burden on the church volunteers, reducing the need to count cash, bank the cash and make the gift aid claim - It encourages people to consider their giving annually, with an option to increase their giving in line with inflation each year - There are no costs associated with the scheme. The church receives 100% of the gift and the tax reclaim and doesn't need to invest in envelopes - People using the scheme are more generous in their giving as they prayerfully consider their gift before signing up (the average gift from a Standing Order is £20 per month, the people signing up for Gift Direct this year donate an average of £50 per month) - Most importantly at this time, it helps reduce the need to handle cash - keeping our sidespeople and treasurers safer as they volunteer to serve their church - In our increasingly cashless society, with fewer cash machines and less cash circulating, the use of case will become more difficult for donors trying to use the envelope scheme - Annual correspondence keeps the donor up to date with their giving and offers the option to increase or decrease their gifts in the following year.
