Giving to St Andrew's
While there is joy in the spontaneity of a one-off gift when the Spirit moves us, it is regular giving that offers a prayerful expression of faith in action. Regular giving sustains our church and helps us to plan for the future. That is why we are members of the Parish Giving Scheme (PGS).
The team at PGS makes it safe and easy for you to give regularly, and just as safe and easy for your church to receive. Every pound you donate can be put to Christian service in your community, free from time-consuming admin for church staff and volunteers. There’s also an option for you to increase your gift annually to keep pace with the rising cost of living, with the peace of mind that you can adjust your donation at any time if your circumstances change. If you are a UK taxpayer you can opt to add Gift Aid, increasing the value of your donation by 25%, which PGS will collect from HMRC on our behalf.
Now, with the addition of a simple and secure online process, there are three easy ways to donate to your parish through the PGS; you can set up your Direct Debit online, by telephone, or you can fill in a gift form and post it to PGS.
Donors who would like to make use of the new online service from PGS can simply visit parishgiving.org.uk, find your church using the easy search tool, and follow a few simple steps to set up your donation securely.
Alternatively, you can set up your regular gift by phoning the PGS team on 0333 002 1271, Monday to Friday, 9-5.

THANK YOU very much. Your gift will help to ensure that St Andrew's is able to help others for years to come.
Gift Aid at St Andrew’s
Like most charities, St Andrew’s operates a Gift Aid scheme. Those who pay income tax may sign a declaration that what they give is gift-aided, and the income tax on that sum (basic rate - higher rate tax payers can claim back the additional tax in their annual return) is recovered by the Church. This adds 25% to the value of the gift.
There are two ways in which this is organised:
Regular givers through the PGS have gift aid collected by the scheme without extra administrative burden for the church.
Occasional or “one off” givers can put their gift in a white gift aid envelope (available in the church), filling in the necessary details on the outside, or use the form below when giving in person or via online banking.
One-off donations to our church can easily be made via direct bank transfers to our account:
