Here’s how you can give to support our church.
We are keen to encourage regular giving through Standing Orders, so thank you if you are already supporting us.
Setting up a routine Standing Order means we can receive your donation with no additional costs to the church. Ideally you should create the Standing Order direct with your bank, if you can’t do this, contact us at email@example.com and we’ll help.
Here are our bank details:
CAF Bank, Sort Code 40-52-40
Account No. 00013004.
If you are a UK taxpayer, please Gift Aid your donation, enabling our church to reclaim a further 25% on your contribution. Download and complete our Gift Aid Declaration here. You can email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or send it to us.
One Off Donations
If you would like to make a one off donation or set up a monthly direct debit, it’s really easy to do with your debit or credit card; you can Gift Aid it too. Bear in mind we are charged a small processing fee to receive this donation: https://bpchurch.churchsuite.co.uk/donate/
Many smart phones have QR code capability so you can make a one off payment this way too.
How Much Should I Give?
Many Christians commit 10% of their income to their local church, here’s a video exploring the theology of giving. We encourage all members and friends of Buckingham Parish Church to prayerfully decide what percentage of their income they will give and then make a pledge to give that amount. This helps us to more confidently plan our activities within the church and community.
We understand that giving is not just about money so have a look at the church life tab to see how you might want to get involved.
If you have any queries, please either e-mail Tracy here or call our Church Office on 01280 821509.
Where Our Money Comes From
We really appreciate the generosity of those who support the work of our church. You can watch a short video overview of our finances from May 2020 here.
Below is an overview of our income sources:
How We Use These Resources
Our income supports a wide range of activities across our church. This includes our pastoral activities, children’s, youth and family work. We have committed preachers, teachers, worship leaders and musicians.
We have to maintain our grade 1 listed building and support churches in smaller communities through our Parish Contribution.
We have dedicated full time and part time employees, supported by a great team of unpaid volunteers all striving to support our local community, both practically and emotionally.
We also aim to give 10% of our annual income to support the work of other charities locally and overseas.
