We believe that giving is joyful – recognising what God has given us – and using those gifts to bless others.
Our mission partners, clergy, youth work and buildings would not be able to operate without your generous support.
Many of our congregation make a regular gift, and this is a big help in planning our budgets, while also making it easier for you. We recommend giving by Direct Debit through the Parish Giving Scheme. Just pick up a leaflet about this from the church or contact the Marshfield Treasurer or Tormarton Treasurer to request a form.
Many people may prefer to make a one-off donation to one of our parishes.
There are a number of ways to make a one-off donation:
- Give online using the buttons above, to donate to your parish of choice.
- Use the collection plate or envelope scheme in a church service. Envelopes are available in church which enable the donation to be gift aided.
- Post a donation in the chest in St Mary’s Marshfield.
- Post a donation in the box in Tormarton church.
Gift Aid, making your gift go further
If you are a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid will increase the value of any gift by 25%, so do take the time to fill out a Gift Aid Declaration with your donation. If you’re giving online, via the Parish Giving Scheme or using envelopes, you’ll just need to give your name and address and confirm that you’re a UK taxpayer. We’ll do the rest.
Where does the money go?
A proportion of your donation is set aside for helping our mission partners abroad, and to support our ministry team in carrying out pastoral care in our own community, including Marshfield Primary School and groups such as Mothers Union.
We give a proportion to support churches and outreach projects across the whole region, through our Parish Share. Each parish gives what it can, to be shared amongst all parishes in the diocese, so that those who have more can help those who have less. It goes towards the costs of clergy and those in training, as well as vital support roles, such as safeguarding.
Your donation helps us maintain and operate our ancient Grade 1 listed churches and churchyards. It will help to fund future activities such as stoneworks, clock repairs and the introduction of broadband to enable live streaming of services.
“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”Luke 9.38 (NIV)
