Why we need your Donations
We are entirely self funded and receive no financial support from Government or The Church of England. It costs us £200 per day to meet all our costs and maintain this wonderful Grade II* listed Church.
It would be easy to take its future for granted, but we aim to preserve this place of worship for generations to come. To help meet our costs our group of volunteers strive to keep our Church open to visitors throughout the day.
However you give, whatever you give, we promise to use it wisely to care for our Church.
How to Donate
There are different ways you can donate:
By sending a cheque payable to 'Woodchurch PCC' to the Parish Office.
Online via BACs to the following:
Name: PCC of Woodchurch (Parochial Church Council of Woodchurch)
Sort code: 20-50-36
Account Number: 40690961
If you pay income tax or capital gains tax and complete our Gift Aid Declaration Form here then the tax man will pay Holy Cross Church back the tax you have already paid on your donation.
Finally, you could come to the Church and put money in our donations box, as many visitors so generously do already.
For regular donations, then the Bank Mandate Form is a simple way to instruct your Bank to pay money into the Holy Cross Parish Church's bank account. Please download here and print this form and fill in all the requested details. When completed, please give it to your Bank to process on our behalf.
You may cancel any time
If you give by this method already then this is the way to INCREASE or DECREASE your gift because a new Standing Order Mandate cancels a previous one.
