Giving to fund our Churches

Thank you for your generosity, your giving matters now more than ever.

The churches of the Easters, Rodings and Great Canfield, like all parishes in the Church of England have to finance themselves, maintain and fund all the running costs for the church buildings and make a significant contribution (£68k in 2020) to the Chelmsford Diocese for the cost of its clergy and the wider church establishment.

We are very grateful to the faithful church community who give regularly through the collection plate as well as the wider community who support our fundraising events; all of this generosity together with the time and talents of a large number of volunteers, enables us to continue to provide a Christian presence in each of our villages.

During these challenging times, our income has reduced significantly as we are not able to hold services in our buildings and many of our traditional community fundraising events have been cancelled.

Please consider making or amending a regular standing order or if you can make a one-off donation to help us at this time, thank you.

+ WAYS TO GIVE

Each of our village churches has its own bank account which enables your gift to go to your village church. If you would like to make a general gift to the work of the 10 churches, please contact the Parish Administrator via the contacts page.

+ PAYROLL GIVING VIA YOUR EMPLOYER

Many employers offer Payroll Giving which allows you to give directly to the church from your salary before tax is deducted. This means if you give £100 per month and are a basic rate taxpayer, the gift will only cost you £80 from your net pay. If you pay a higher rate of tax, £100 a month will only cost you £60 from your net pay. To find out if your employer offers Payroll Giving, contact your HR office.

+ CHARITABLE AID AGENCIES

You may wish to give via a charitable aid agency such as CAF, Charities Trust, or Charitable Giving. These agencies are useful for those who give to multiple charities and wish to have their giving recorded in one place or for those who wish to give anonymously.

+ GIFT AID
