Using Gift Aid
What about Gift Aid?
The Government recognises the significance of regular giving to charities and encourages it by giving the charity the income tax paid on the money given. So if you pay Income Tax and pay regularly, then you should seriously consider gift aid. It’s one way of being a thoughtful giver and a good steward of what God has given you. You can pay the annual sum either as one sum per year or in instalments quarterly, monthly or weekly according to your preference. You must however make sure your giving can be identified by the church treasurer, so payment by cheque or standing order are the preferred methods. There’s no problem if your circumstances change. If for example you become unemployed, just speak to the treasurer he will make the necessary adjustments.
