Giving and ways to give

All our activites are made possible by the generosity of our supporters. Whilst we receive some income from weddings and funerals held in church (or, in the case of a funeral, sometimes at the crematorium), the majority of the funding for our regular services and activities comes from donations made by the members of our congregations, and some from specific funding bids and initiatives.

 

If you would like to give to either or both of our churches, you can do this in a number of ways. If you are a UK taxpayer, please consider completing a Gift Aid form.

 

Gift Aid:

Gift Aid provides a valuable source of income for our churches. We can reclaim the 25% basic rate income tax on donations, if you provide us with a completed Gift Aid form. For example, with a donation of £100.00, we can reclaim £25.00, making a total donation of £125.00.   Please send your Gift Aid declaration form to our Gift Aid Officer, Miss Daphne Laycock, c/o The New Vicarage, 27 The Oaks, Soham, CB7 5FF.

 

Cash: 

Cash can be donated in the weekly collections during services. The envelope scheme is a good way to donate cash if you regularly attend services, as we can reclaim the tax through Gift Aid.  Those who give money in this way are given enough numbered envelopes for each week of the year. 

 

Cheques and Bank Transfers:

If you wish to make a donation to Soham Parish Church by cheque, please make your cheque payable to Soham PCC and send it c/o Eleanor, our vicar, to The New Vicarage, 27 The Oaks, Soham, CB7 5FF. Soham's bank details for bank tranfers are:

Account Name: Soham PCC

Sort Code: 20-29-68

Account No.: 90829013

 

Standing Order/Direct Debit:

Donations by standing order or direct debit are very helpful as they provide a regular donation and help us to plan and budget for our activities.

 

Bequests:

You might also consider leaving something to the church in your will. We are very grateful for the legacies from which we have benefitted in the past. Thank you!

 

Thanks to you all for your kind generosity.
