Giving by Text

We very much appreciate all those who support the work of All Saints’ Church through regular donations whether through the envelopes or being members of the Planned Giving Scheme.
Along with other churches, families and businesses our income as a church has been greatly affected by the closure of the building. We have lost income from collections during services, yellow envelopes, hall bookings and income from events.
So we have added an additional way to give to support the ministry of All Saints’ and that is by text.
Text ALLSAINTS to 70470 to donate £5
Texts cost £5 plus one standard rate message
Other amounts up to £20 are possible, so forinstance text
ALLSAINTS10 to 70470 to donate £10
ALLSAINTS20 to 70470 to donate £20
Thank you very much indeed.

It is also possible to give to the church via online banking and cheques, made payable to All Saints’ Church Peterborough PCC’ and sent to :

The Church Wardens, c/o All Saints’ Vicarage, 208 Park Road, Peterborough PE1 2UJ

Have you joined our planned giving scheme?

planned-giving-article

What is planned giving? The planned giving scheme is used by members of our church to donate to the church on a regular basis, usually through a standing order.

Why should I join? The majority of our income comes through the scheme. A regular donation allows us to budget our expenditure based on regular gifts. If you pay income tax we can automatically claim gift aid on your donation through the scheme.

Where does the money go? Donations received through the scheme pay towards all the running costs of the church, this includes:

  • Sustain our clergy – Planned giving allows us to pay our Parish Share which is a scheme used across the diocese to pay for, train and house our clergy.
  • Paying to insure, maintain, heat and light the church building
  • Director Music fees, organists
  • Maintaining the organ and running the choir

How much should I give? There is no one, easy answer for everyone. If you are seeking guidance, the Church of England recommends, based on biblical teaching 5% of income to your parish and 5% to charities of your choice. We are called to love God and our neighbour and our giving is an expression of that love.

How do I join? To join the scheme please speak to Rob Taylor or a member of the Stewardship Committee. Forms can be found in the foyer of the church.
