Parish Giving Scheme

How the Parish Giving Scheme works

St Mark’s enjoys a varied congregation from all over the parish and beyond and through our members, we endeavour to give back to the community – through our church and social groups, vegetable project and more. However we largely rely upon the good will of our congregation in order to continue to support the community in our efforts, as well as to maintain the historic church building itself.

If you would like to contribute to the work we do, your donations will always be gratefully received.  You can donate to us here, if you like.

During service, a donation is always welcome and donation envelopes are available at the end of each pew. Alternatively, regular donations can be setup through the Parish Giving Scheme, a monthly direct debit which sees your kind donation coming directly to us each month.

More information about the parish giving scheme can be found at the Diocese of Gloucester website or through our treasurer Teresa Nivison.

Donate through …shopping?

Finally, did you know that through online shopping, you can donate back to St Mark’s – at no cost to yourself – too?
