Parish Giving Scheme and Gift Aid
Anybody wishing to support Feniton Church are invited to join the Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) which is administered nationally by Gloucester Diocese. This scheme allows you make regular donations by direct debit, anonymously if you prefer. If you are a tax payer the scheme automatically reclaims the tax and the full amount of the donation plus the tax refund is paid into the church account. Whether or not you are a churchgoer or a non-taxpayer is irrelevant and your contribution towards maintaining a local community building will be appreciated by the Parochial Church Council. Donations from any non-taxpayer will likewise always be welcome.
If you join the scheme and are an existing donor by Standing Order your SO donation needs to be cancelled and replaced by the PGS. If you donate by Yellow Envelope this can also cease. Membership of the Scheme provides the opportunity for annual review in either direction and is risk and hassle free. Should you wish to put something into the collection bag as it passes you there is in the church porch small plastic cards in a silver tray, these can be put into the collection bag to signify your donation
By joining the Scheme you will help to reduce the administration burden on the Gift Aid Officer and the Church Treasurer.
PGS packs are available from inside the Church itself or from the Treasurer, who will be happy to answer any queries you may have. (Brian Martin)(Gift Aid Officer)
