Giving at St Nick's
A number of people have asked how they can continue to give to support St Nick's, and express their commitment and faith. We are really grateful for everyone's generosity at this time.
St Nick's continues to have significant costs. Lockdown meant we lost much of our parish centre income, which was running at around £600 per week, as well as gifts at church worship.
There are three ways to give which ensure your giving arrives without the need for cash or cheques to be handled and banked - card donation, BACS or standing order.
You can give by credit or debit card by clicking the yellow button. If you pay tax, you can also opt to Gift Aid your donation.
The give.net service is provided by Stewardship, who provide financial advice and support to charities and churches. A commission of 3% from your gift covers their admin costs in providing this service.
To give regularly, it's best to set up a standing order, You can download a form here.
Please make sure the start date you give allows enough time for the form to arrive, be checked and passed on to your bank. If you prefer to manage standing orders online, please notify the office on firstname.lastname@example.org, so that it can be confirmed that your gift has arrived safely in the church account.
If you pay enough tax, it also includes a Gift Aid form you can complete, which increases the value of your gifts by 25%. Please put it in the post, using the address at the bottom of the form.
