Members of Waldron Churches contribute to the life and work of the church in many ways and one very significant way is through giving financially.
We have seen the conclusion of phase two of the organ restoration at All Saints and we await planning consent for the new building at St Barts, two ambitious financial projects to which donations would be very gratefully received.

Freewill Offering (FWO)
The FWO scheme can receive variable cash donations, weekly, monthly or on occasional gifts. Numbered envelopes are available for regular givers or envelopes on which you can complete your details. This method allows us to claim Gift Aid* on your donations making them worth 25% more.
* To claim Gift Aid you must be a UK tax payer and pay less Income and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed by all charities to whom you give under gift aid in any year.
If you are interested in making a FWO offering, contact Margaret Hughes→
Parish Giving Scheme
This scheme is a 21st Century solution to address one of our greatest problems which is to be reassured as to the regular income we can expect to receive for the Parish.
Donors arrange to support our churches by way of a Direct Debit which can be set up monthly, quarterly or annually. If you are a UK tax payer, and, therefore, your contribution qualifies for Gift Aid, this is automatically claimed and the benefit passed to us.
The scheme is administered centrally for the Church of England and we simply receive a bulk payment each month along with the tax recovered, making our own Parish administration extremely simple. For those who wish to remain anonymous, there is the capacity to do so and, importantly, you can also index link your donations if you wish, avoiding the eed for ongoing reviews!
Our Treasurer strongly recommends this form of giving to support our work, so, if you would like to join those who already use the scheme, just let the Treasurer Ian Dixon → know and further guidance and application forms can be provided.
Here at WALDRON we welcome all gifts in wills, however large or small, and we promise to use your gift to make a difference in our parish. Our PCC Legacy Policy is to use gifts to help fund significant development projects, whether buildings, equipment or staff.
Since needs change over the years, we encourage you to leave a gift in your will for the general purposes of the parish rather than for a restricted purpose. We will discuss possible uses of your gift with your executors when the time comes, bearing in mind your known areas of interest in the church (e.g. music, buildings, children and youth, overseas mission or aid) and the church’s priorities at the time.
You can be confident that your gift will be used to make a real difference to our future mission and ministry.
We will acknowledge gifts in whatever way the donor and/or his/her executors feel most appropriate to. Equally, we can make sure that gifts remain anonymous if the donor prefers.
If you would like to talk to someone in confidence about the sorts of purposes your gift might fund, and how/if you would like your gift to be acknowledged, please contact Ian Dixon→
If you would like to make a gift to our church in memory of a loved one, please do come and discuss this with us too.
