HOW TO DONATE TO PAKEFIELD CHURCH DURING OUR PERIOD OF CLOSURE DUE TO COVD-19…
How can I continue to gift money to our Church?
It costs, £1616 per week to keep our church open and most of this money comes from Sunday and Wednesday collections.
Although our building is closed, we still incur the same overheads, and so your regular giving is vital so that we can be good stewards of what God has given us and open our doors again as soon as we are given permission!
There are several ways to continue your giving:
First, you can give by standing order, if you use Internet banking this only takes a few minutes to set up, please make sure that you use your full name as the reference, this is especially important if you have signed a gift aid form. Please let our Gift Aid secretary, Sheila Layton, know (contact details inside cover).
Our Bank details are:
Sort code: 20-53-06
Account Number: 90723665
Account Name: Pakefield Parochial Church Council
Second, you can give by cheque, made payable to Pakefield PCC. Please put these in an envelope and pop them through the rectory door.
If you currently use white envelopes or put cash in the collection plate, you may wish to wait until you have a month’s worth, and then pop them through the rectory door. In this current climate we want to reduce the amount of cash that our Treasurer, Mark Warren has to deal with and bank, so if you are able to write a cheque for your white envelopes for your usual cash donation that would be really beneficial.
Pink envelopes are for one off donations only, and are designed for visitors and not regular givers. If you do use a pink envelope, and wish to ensure we receive the Gift Aid, the best thing to do is convert to the white envelope scheme. Please speak to Anne Everitt about this (contact details on inside cover).
Please do not put money through the Parish Office letterbox, as it is currently closed.
