Giving

There are many ways you can get involved in St John's and help keep this much loved church at the heart of Hurst Green.

However, not everyone realises that as a church we rely entirely on the financial generosity of those who value our community work, activities for all ages, pastoral care and worship, to keep going.  Donations to St John's are vital to maintain the building, pay the vicar and support all we do to share God's love with thousands of different people year by year.  Please consider how you can help us.

Ways of giving

REGULAR  DONATION VIA PGS

The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) is a new, free way to help you plan your giving and, if you are a tax payer, to donate through Gift Aid (which allows us to claim an extra 25% of your donation from the government if you are a UK tax payer). Whether you want to start giving to our church on a regular basis or currently give by other means, you can easily sign up to this secure and efficient Direct Debit system.

How do you sign up?
Please scroll down to download an information sheet and the application form, fill it in and post it to the address on the application form. 

Parish Giving Scheme has recently introduced telephone registrations. New donors can ring PGS directly and set up their Direct Debit over the phone without the need to post in a physical form. The number to ring is 0333 002 1271. Make sure you have your bank details to hand. You will also need the name of our church (“St John the Evangelist RH8, Diocese of Southwark) and our PGS registration number, which is 370637121. Calls will usually last around fifteen minutes

How can I make changes to my existing regular gift?
We know that circumstances change and your ability to give may increase or decrease over time. If you wish
to make a change please notify the Parish Giving Scheme quoting:

• Your PGS reference number (found below your address on PGS correspondence)
• How much your existing gift is for
• What you would like it changed to
• When you would like this change to be brought into effect
