Giving Time and Money

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 offers many ways in which you can get involved in giving to charities too. Our May Fair, held every other year, is a popular event in the community and raises money for local charities, through the hard work of many volunteers. Our Christmas services and events also raise considerable sums for charity, and we encourage our members to get involved with charities as volunteers and supporters. We have a group which regularly volunteers with homeless people at The Passage, and we have a visiting scheme to take Welcome Boxes to refugees. If you have time, energy and gifts to share with the church or the community around us and would like to get involved, please contact the Assistant Priest, Revd Julie Khovacs: This email address is being protected from spambots.

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.

The Parish Giving Scheme
The Parish Giving Scheme

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.

From November 2018 all new monthly giving will be through the Parish Giving Scheme, whether or not you are a UK taxpayer, to save us money on administration and make our reclaiming of tax more efficient. We are quite excited about it!

Legacies
Another very important way to support the church is through a legacy. Leaving a fixed sum or a percentage of your estate to St Peter's enables us to continue to serve future generations, and generous legacies can enable projects which could not be possible otherwise. Legacies can be for the general expenses of the church, or can be directed to particular funds and if you would like to discuss this, please contact the treasurer or the Vicar.

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.
