How do we increase the income of the Parish?

As you may be aware, the Parish is working towards clearing its current debt and we have identified the Offertory and Gift Aid as the two main ways to increase Parish income. 

The Offertory is the most important and highest income for the Parish but not everyone can come to Mass every week so setting up a standing order would help greatly.

Joining the Gift Aid Scheme means that for every £100 contributed through Gift Aid, £25 can be reclaimed from HMRC for the Parish. It's very simple to join, all that is needed is your address and for someone in your family to be be a UK taxpayer. The scheme is completely confidential and there is an added personal benefit if you are a higher rate taxpayer.

Downloads of the Gift Aid and Standing Order forms can be found below along with "Gift Aid Explained" for further information about the scheme. Printed copies are also available at the back of the Church.
