Giving at St Nick's

St Nick's only continues in its life and ministry due to the generosity of people, and the good management of our assets.

Our income mainly comes from 3 sources:

  • Giving - from church members and some members of the wider community. 

  • Hall lettings. Used widely by groups from our community and beyond.

  • Income from invested legacies, which we can't rely on in the current economic conditions.

We also generate some additional income from events, concerts and fund-raising.


Please consider supporting St Nick's through regular giving - either through the Parish Giving Scheme, or by using the regular weekly giving envelopes. 


You can make single donations by credit or debit card, Apple or Google Pay or set up regular gifts by Direct Debit.


The service is provided by the Parish Giving Scheme, which is supported centrally by the Church of England. All donations and tax recovered come through to St Nicholas' monthly. A small commission is charged on one-off gifts to cover administration.

Giving Regularly

To give regularly, it's best to set up a regular gift using Direct Debit via the Parish Giving Scheme. You can do this easily by clicking here


If you pay income tax, you can increase the value of your gifts by 25% by ticking the box to agree to giving by Gift Aid.

The Parish Giving Scheme also has the facility for you to ask for your donations to be increased with inflation, if you tick the appropriate box. You will always be notified well in advance of any changes to your Direct Debit.

The full value of all regular gifts, along with tax recovered will be forwarded to St Nicholas' Church monthly.

If you prefer to give by cash or cheque, please ask for a set of envelopes to help you make your gift weekly. If you are a taxpayer using this method, please consider using Gift Aid.
