St Mark’s Church costs some £2,700 per week to stay open and increasingly we need additional donations to supplement the hard work undertaken by parishioners and clergy. Thus we welcome Donations to help us maintain the mission and ministry of our church
To donate via PayPal please click the donate button above.
To claim Gift Aid we will need your name and address to be advised to us by PayPal as part of the payment advice. To confirm that we may do so please type ‘Gift Aid’ in the message box – ‘Add special instructions to the seller’ - when confirming the payment and also tick the "Share my postal address with St. Mark’s" box.
Gift Aid is really very important to us as it enables the Church to claim an extra 25% from The Inland Revenue. Thus for every £10 received as Gift Aid St. Mark’s Church receives £12.50. All these extra amounts can add up to make a real difference.
We are also desperate to install a new heating system before next winter. Last winter the average temperature in church for services was 12ºC. Donations can be made via Wonderful which has the advantage of no fees being deducted from your donation. Please click on to go the the Wonderful site
Alternatively, if you prefer to send a cheque, a Gift Aid form can be downloaded here.

PARISH GIVING SCHEME
For regular donations St Marks operates the efficient Parish Giving Scheme (PGS). This uses direct debiting to send donations to St Marks bank account without any fees being incurred and so we encourage as many people as possible to use this.
A graphical illustration about the Parish Giving Scheme is contained in a short video which you can watch by clicking HERE.
To sign up for PGS a folder, giving further information and answers to frequently asked questions, is available in the foyer. or have a word with either Francis Bray, Charles Leonard or a Churchwarden.
