Wooden Crosses
The Bell Committee commissioned little wooden crosses to be made out of the Bell Frame wood.
These have been offered as a personal ‘thank you’ to those who have supported St. Faith’s over several years.

Parish Giving Scheme

 

As we get close to Christmas, I feel that this is a good time to tell you about a new initiative for increasing regular financial donations to our churches – the Parish Giving Scheme.  It has been put in place (and paid for!) by the national C of E.  It is a piece of smart thinking, already helping hundreds of parishes in other dioceses, and just arriving at Hereford. 
It uses the Direct Debit method for giving – instead of putting an envelope occasionally on the old collection plate or making a one-off cash donation.  It is all-electronic so it is safe, and gets rid of the need to count cash and pay it in, so it minimises admin. It can ‘inflation-proof’ our giving, and maximise our cash-flow. It also still allows for ‘Gift Aid’ to be used.
To find out more about the scheme read the PGS Leaflet or watch the video.
To obtain a form contact PCC Treasurer John Platts using contact form.
