SUGGESTIONS FOR GIVING


On the first day of the week, each one of us should set aside a sum of money, which is affordable and keeping in line with our income. (1 Corinthians 16:2)


We have all been called to give generously and cheerfully, and this pleases God who will reward us accordingly. (1 Corinthians 9:7 and Luke 6:38)


The following are various ways you can give to the Church:


REGULAR GIVING: You can give regularly either weekly or monthly. Offerings can be either tithes (a proportion of your income), or a fixed regular amount. These gifts can be put in the collection during Sunday services, or you can pay directly by bank transfer (see below for details).


ONE-OFF GIFTS: On your birthdays, other anniversaries and various occasions, you can donate to the church either for a specific project or activity or as general offering. Each year the church will have a Gift Day, as a focus for a gift from each member.


LEGACY:  Please consider making a legacy to St Mary Magdalene Church, Woolwich in your Will.


STANDING ORDER/DIRECT DEBIT: You can donate to the church by standing order or direct debit (see below for bank account details).


GIFT-AID: You can increase your regular or occasional giving to the church by gift-aiding it, if you pay either Income or Capital Gains tax. The church will receive 25 pence for every £1.00 you give, at no cost to yourself from the Inland Revenue. - Please click here to download a Gift Aid Form, then complete it and return it to our Gift Aid Officer (Mr David Thompson)

 In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own. (2 Corinthians 8: 2 -3)
