How to Donate

Why do we need financial support?

 St Augustine’s gives practical and spiritual support for the community of North Springfield and wider. We have a Sunday school and we organise charitable fundraising for Children’s society, Kenya and other charities

Although most of what we do is through the freely given time and skills of volunteers, we still need to meet the costs of paid clergy and the maintenance and running costs of church buildings and services. Even though at the moment we are not in Church because of the lockdown costs still need to be met.

We are grateful for anything that people are able to give to help support our work locally in North Springfield and further afield. There are various ways that you can do this

Giving through the Plate each Sunday

When we are in Church people regularly give money in the collection plate at services. Obviously since at the moment we are not in church this has not been happening. However there are other ways to support us now and in the future

Gift aid or planned giving scheme

You can also sign up to the Parish Giving Scheme. This is a way to give on a regular basis direct from your bank account. The amount that you give is decided by you when you sign up. Contact our Treasurer Carolyn Smith via infostaugustines@gmail.com or call on 01245 264028
