Giving to St Luke’s

Legacies and donations

Around 70% of the cost of running our two parishes is found by the congregations through planned giving and weekly church collections. This allows parishioners to spread their giving by weekly/monthly/quarterly instalments, using bank standing orders or our envelope scheme; envelopes are available in both churches.

As a registered charity the benefice is able to benefit from the Gift Aid Scheme whereby a donor’s contribution can be increased by 25% at no extra cost to the giver. For the donor’s contribution to be eligible, the donor must pay income or capital gains tax of not less than the amount we claim (25% of the donation).

If you would like to contribute regularly to the work of the two churches one of the Churchwardens or the Treasurer can provide a Standing Order Form.

If you wish to leave a legacy or make a single gift please contact the Rector or Treasurer in complete confidence.
