We will delighted to receive your financial support!

“Let each one give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver”
(2 Corinthians 9.7)

As part of our Covid-19 precautions we are not receiving offertory collections at our services at present.  Here are some ways by which you can give now:

Planned Giving

Most of our regular congregation have signed up to give by monthly standing orders from their bank or building society into our “stewardship” account at Lloyds Bank.   Where possible, they have gift-aided their donations – adding 25% at no cost to them.

To receive more information on how to join Planned Giving:  pick up an envelope from church containing an “Information Pack” or contact us.

Some guidance on “How much should I be giving?” can be found here

 

Single donations

These can be made by:

Online banking into our CAF Bank account – contact us for details

Cheque (payable to All Saints’ Church, Berkhamsted) given to the treasurer

If a Gift Aid declaration can be given, this will increase the value of the donation by 25% at no cost to you

 

 

Giving by Text Message

You can give us a donation straight from your mobile phone.

Simply text

ALLSAINTS 5
to 70460 to donate £5 to our church.

To make a £20 donation, text

ALLSAINTS 20
to 70460

Any amount in whole pounds from £1 to £20 can be given, with the cost of the donation  plus one standard network rate message added to your phone bill.  These donations can be gift-aided via your mobile.

 

Gift Aid it!

If you are a UK taxpayer and have given use a Gift Aid declaration, we can claim an extra 25% on your donation at no additional cost to you.

Whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to a holiday – you could be raising free donations for us.

 

 

We have signed up as “All Saints Church – Berkhamsted” at Easyfundraising.org.uk where there are over 4,000 shops and sites ready to make a donation – including Amazon, eBay, Argos, John Lewis, Waitrose, ASOS, Booking.com and M&S – and it won’t cost you a penny extra to help us raise funds.

All you need to do is:

  1. Go to EasyFundraising and join for free.
  2. Every time you shop online, go to www.easyfundraising.org.uk and find the site you want and start shopping.
  3. After you’ve checked out, the retailer will make a donation to us at no extra cost to you whatsoever!

There are no catches or hidden charges and we will be really grateful for your donations – “Every Little Helps”!

Even easier:

  1. Also install the Donation Reminder onto your desktop in just a couple of clicks – it will then automatically highlight retailers where a donation is available while you’re browsing.
  2. Download the easyfundraising app. You’ll be able to use the app whenever you shop from your mobile or tablet and know that you’ll never miss out on a donation.
