Giving to St John’s
We give time, money and talents to support the work of the Church at St John’s.
Our main financial contribution supports the Diocese who pay clergy and housing costs. We pay for the upkeep of the Church premises so that we can provide a welcoming place to meet and worship. We also gift to the wider Mission of the Church which supports Abby, our own full time Children and Youth Worker, and our Missioner, Amy, for three days a week. In addition there are various church and community projects to which St John’s gives financial assistance. We also pledge to give a proportion of our income to other charities such as the Foodbank.
In this way we can support our work with children and young people on Sundays, midweek and in local schools, and reach out to those who have little or no faith.
Ways to give
The treasurer is always available to give advice and can be contacted via the Parish Office. firstname.lastname@example.org
The Parish Giving Scheme is promoted by the Diocese, and collects gifts by Direct Debit on our behalf, along with relevant Gift Aid. This has proved invaluable during the pandemic to provide a stable income to pay our staff and bills.
Gifts via the Parish Giving Scheme can be set up online through their website parishgiving.org.uk. They also accept arrangements by phone on 0333 002 1271 from 9.00am – 5.00pm on weekdays. The relevant code is: Neville’s Cross St Johns 130613024. You can also contact them through email@example.com and parishgiving.org.uk
You can also give directly on line to our account either by standing order on a regular basis or as a one off donation. Donors often use this to support our Local Mission Fund. Gift Aid can be reclaimed by the Church if the donor is a tax payer. We would need to know your postcode and house number.

We will, of course, accept cheques to St Johns Church Neville’s Cross via the Parish Office, but electronic payments reduce administration and visits to the bank.
