To set up a regular donation
St. Andrew's is linked to the Parish Giving Scheme (PGS), overseen by The Church of England, which is a tax-efficient way of giving. There are two ways you can set up your donation through a direct debit.
You can set up your donation on-line; the process starts on the unique page for St Andrew’s Church. Go to the Parish Giving website: www.parishgiving.org.uk and follow the on-screen guidance. Use the ‘Find your parish’ search tool and type in the name of your church, parish and location. Click on your chosen church and you’ll be able to cross-check that it’s the right place, using the map, address details and description on that page.
When you arrive on the page for St Andrew’s, Alwalton, simply click on the Donate button and follow the instructions on screen to set up your regular gift.
You will need the following:
Your personal bank account details
The name of the parish you wish to donate to (Alwalton St. Andrew's)
You will need to confirm if you want to increase your gift in line with inflation each year (Optional)
Confirm if you are eligible for Gift Aid

Next, you’ll be guided through a simple form to provide your personal bank details, the value and frequency of your gift, the option to add Gift Aid, you can choose to increase your gift annually by the rate of inflation and decide whether you would prefer to give anonymously.
