Becoming a giving people
Encouraging regular giving
In a church of faithful stewards the only people putting cash on the plate should be people who are new to your church or visitors. Regular givers should be encouraged into one of the other ways of giving.
Gift Direct ensures a regular monthly gift goes into the parish bank account, along with any gift aid. The scheme is administered from the Provincial Office and is a free service to parishes. Gift Direct reduces the workload on the Gift Aid Secretary and improves cash flow.
The Gift Direct giving method has also proven itself useful in enabling the community to offer financial support for the church.
During this year, you will encourage people to give to church in a planned, regular way however often they attend. The Gift Direct scheme is one of the best ways of achieving this.
