St Paul's members contribute to the life and work of the church in many different ways. While the information below relates to financial giving, other pages on this site explain the variety of ways you can get involved and contribute in other ways to St Paul's many ministries.
There are several ways to do this:
1. Offering bags on a Sunday. Simply place your donation in the bag as it is passed along the rows.
2. Set up a standing order. You can do this via your own online banking or we can do it for you using a paper form. If you’d like us to do it please ask for a Standing Order Form or you can download one by clicking here and return it to us. The ‘reference’ is your name and initials.
3. Online banking. Set up a regular payment to Friends of St Paul's Church Crofton. Please ensure you add your name and initials as the reference. Account Number: 14057433 Sort Code: 60-16-03
4. Payroll Giving. If your employer operates a payroll giving scheme you can arrange to make regular donations through that. This simplifies the paperwork as the donation plus the tax (at whatever rate you pay it) is passed to the charity and you don’t have to remember it for your tax return.

If you are a UK higher rate (40 percent) or additional rate (45 percent) income taxpayer and you give to St Paul's directly and allow us to reclaim the basic rate tax through Gift Aid then you may recover, through your tax return, the difference between the basic rate tax that St Paul's recovery and the higher or additional rate that you have paid. If you give via Payroll Giving then, because you are giving 'pre-tax', you are able to pass on the full benefit of your tax to St Paul's immediately.
