Parish Giving Scheme
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.
