There are a number of ways of giving to the church, so choose the one that is best for you. If you are a taxpayer (that’s income or capital gains tax) then if you Gift Aid your giving the church receives an additional 25p for every £ you give!
Our preferred option is by regular Direct Debit from your bank account. Your donation is taken monthly from your bank account by a central office and your donation, plus recovered Gift Aid, is transferred to the parish a few days later. You also have the option of increasing your giving every year in line with inflation, should you wish to do so, without any further form filling. This is our preferred option.
You can of course just put money in the collection plate. However this has two potential disadvantages: firstly if you are a taxpayer we cannot reclaim the tax; and, secondly, it does not help you to make a regular giving commitment to the church.
If you would like to give regularly to St Peter’s Church, please contact our Treasurer:
Hampshire SO24 0DS.
If anyone would like to make a donation to the rebuilding project they can do so by sending a cheque made out to:
‘St Peter’s PCC, Ropley’
Note that if you are a UK taxpayer, you can substantially augment the value of your donation just by completing a Gift Aid declaration. This is available from the link below:
Alternatively, cash donations can be deposited in the collection boxes at the “Courtyard Community Village Shop & Post Office” which is directly opposite the church.
