SUPPORTING YOUR CHURCH

 

Giving through the Parish Giving Scheme

 

Why give through the Parish Giving Scheme?

The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) is simply the best way you can support St Cuthbert’s Church. The PGS is an Anglican charity. Most Liverpool parishes have joined and over half of English dioceses support it. Joining the PGS makes a huge difference compared with weekly envelopes or cash on the plate because we can collect your gift now. It is more efficient than standing orders. Find out more at https://www.liverpool.anglican.org/making-it-easier-parishes/talking-money/parish-giving-scheme/parish-giving-scheme.php.

Your gift is always in your full control (by email or phone) with PGS. The Scheme is for every church member with a bank account. You do not need to pay tax.

Your gift leaves your account by Direct Debit on the 1st of each month. It is in church account by the 10th and any Gift Aid reclaims by the end of the month. The PGS saves time and administration and helps with cash flow. Your gift will support our ministry and PGS helps us make generous giving part of our daily life and discipleship.

How do I join, firstly

  • Have your bank details to hand:
    account number, sort code and the name of your bank.
