St. Mary & All Saints is very much at the heart of the community here in Bingham and a reminder of God’s presence in our lives.
We support the vision and mission of the Diocese and invest in being a community of disciples seeking to witness to the Lord Jesus Christ as we serve Him in our town and beyond.
As a church family the financial support of our ministry is entirely dependent on the generosity of our members and some local support.
However, the reality of church life is that although running costs increase year on year, giving tends to remain at the same level or even decreases due to varying factors.
We therefore encourage all those who consider themselves to be members of the church family to prayerfully consider their response to all that God has given to us. One of the ways we do that is by expressing our gratitude to him by giving generously towards the mission and ongoing needs of the church as an act of worship.
What Can I do?
Firstly, if you do not already support the work and ministry of St Mary & All Saints please consider doing so. Alternatively, if you are a regular giver may we also ask you to take a fresh look at your giving
How Do I Give to St Mary and All Saints Church?
We try and make this as easy as possible! If you plan to give regularly, the simplest way to do this is by bank standing order.
The government supports giving to churches and we aim to make the most of this by encouraging everyone who pays tax to give under Gift Aid, which is very easy to do. For every £1 given by Gift Aid, the government adds 25p. All you need to do is sign a simple form that gives us permission to claim the tax back on all gifts you make. You can than give by one of the following methods:
Bank Standing Order Forms are available for download and in Church, or you can set up the standing order directly with your bank
Cheques: Simply make cheques payable to St Mary and All Saints Church, Bingham
Cash Please ask for a set of envelopes for regular gifts or use a Gift Aid envelope from the back of Church.
Non Tax Payers
We are not able to recover any tax on your giving, but please give regularly using any of the above methods.
What Do I Do Next?
Once you have prayerfully considered your support for St Mary & All Saints Church it would be helpful if you could fill out a Promise Form and return it to the Assistant Treasurer for Planned Giving. This allows the Church a measure of forward planning in its ministry. Details of individual responses are never passed on to anyone else apart from the Honorary Treasurer.
Every few years the Church encourages all members to review their financial support.
Promise, Bank Standing Order and Gift Aid Forms can be downloaded by clicking on the appropriate buttons below and paper forms are always available in Church.
“The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
2 Corinthians 9:7
