Giving to the Church

We would kindly ask those in our community to remember St Botolph's in their daily activites.  The upkeep of the building, utilites and the Parish Share (which pays our Rector's wage) are all gathered from donations made to St Botolph's

Co-Op Local Communities Fund

As a member, every time you shop at Co-op, 1% of what you spend on selected own-brand products and services goes to the local community fund.
 
The money raised by all the members in your community, together with money from shopping bag sales, helps to fund local projects in the area where you live.
 
You can choose which cause you want your own 1% to go to simply by logging on to the membership website.  St Botolph's is registered with this scheme.

Stewardship

The cost of running the Chuch is now over £3,000 each month and we rely on regular financial stewardship to meet these costs.  Many members of our congregation choose to make regular covenanted gifts to the Church.  This can be in the form of contributing through regular collections at services or by creating a standing order with the bank.  

 

The advantage of having regular giving is that the Parocial Church Council (PCC) can plan its expenditire based on anticipated income throughout the year, and where appropriate, claim back the tax paid by donors through Gift Aid.  This applies too for one-off gifts made by a person who pays income tax.  Gift Aid envelopes are scattered among the pews in Church or you can download a Gift Aid Certificate here;

Please return the form to the Stewardship Treasurer or to one of the Church Officers.

Other Kinds of Giving

At St Botolph's we organise regular fund raising events to help meet the running costs of the Church.  These are well supported by the local community and we continue to rely on this addional income to meet our regular outgoings.

 

From time to time we also benefit from legacies which support more specific projects such as refurbishment of the interior of the Church, vestments and indeed funded the building of the Community Link Room.

 

St Botolph's welcomes all gifts in Wills for the work of the Church whether large or small.  If you wish to include a legacy to St Botolph's in your Will you can find some useful guidance at: www.churchlegacy.org.uk or you can talk to the Rector.
