There are many ways in which you can become involved in the life of St Peter’s and support our mission. We welcome the time and talents you have to offer in the service of the parish.
St Peter’s relies upon its congregation to fund its mission and ministry.
Our church is an amazing building which is used every day by a wide range of people, charities and organisations. But it costs £1200 every day to run. In recent years we have been good stewards of our resources, and have income from car parking and the rental of the crypts, the hall and our parish rooms. But a sizeable proportion of the income to fund our ministry and mission here has to come from congregational giving, and this is where you can help, through a regular or one off donation. From November 2018 we are part of the Diocesan Parish Giving Scheme, which makes giving simple and tax efficient.
You can donate to St Peter's online through CAF (Charities Aid Foundation) here. This is an easy way to give using a credit card or Paypal, and Gift Aid can be reclaimed too, making it very advantageous for the church. A 5% charge is deducted from the payment the church receives.
We are delighted to launch a new Parish Giving Scheme at St Peter’s. This is the Diocese of London’s way to make giving to our Church easier. The Parish Giving Scheme takes over the administration of our regular giving - they handle the paperwork, they reclaim Gift Aid on all our tax-deductible donations and send it promptly to the church, and by setting up our individual giving as a Direct Debit we can agree to add a small inflationary increase each year, protecting the value of our Church’s income.
If you have not already done so, we strongly encourage you to make a will. If you would like information about leaving a gift to the church in your will, there is helpful information here - click on the image of the leaflet to download a pdf information sheet from the Church of England.
