We always welcome gifts and donations to help the work of our churches. Coronavirus has had an impact on our normal giving channels and our fund raising plans, especially at St Marty’s where last year we ran a deficit budget of £43,000. We particularly encourage members of our congregations to consider reviewing what they give and how they give it, at this time.
The Parish Giving Scheme
The most efficient way to give, by a very long way, is to use the Parish Giving Scheme. This is really just a direct debit scheme but the process is managed for us at no cost and Gift Aid is automatically reclaimed on all eligible donations.
You can sign up for the Parish Giving Scheme in one of three ways:
Sign up to the Parish Giving Scheme online (St Mary’s)
Sign up to the Parish Giving Scheme by phone
Just call 0333 002 1271you’ll be taken through the process.
You will need the PGS code for the parish you wish to give to, these are:
Ross (St Mary’s) – 180618244
Walford (St Michael’s) – 180618253
Brampton Abbotts (St Michael’s) – 180618477
Sign up to the Parish Giving Scheme by post
If you prefer to do it by post, you can pick up a Parish Giving leaflet from church and complete the form. Alternatively complete this simple online form, email our treasurer, call the Benefice office on 01989 562175 and we’ll get back to you.
If you use the PGS you’ll automatically be enrolled in the Gift Aid scheme. If you give in any other way we ask you to complete a Gift Aid donation form, that way we can reclaim a further 25% on top of your donation at no cost to you.
All physical forms should be returned to The Treasurer, Benefice Office, The Rectory, Church Street, Ross-on-Wye HR9 5HN
