Giving to Warfield Church
God calls all people to Him, to know Him personally and discover a life of love and freedom – to fix our broken world more. Jesus demonstrated this love most powerfully at Easter time but we see in everything he did before and after that event; He continues to set people free today from condemnation and guilt: free to live abundant lives. We want to see more and more of this happening here in Warfield and Bracknell.
We believe that Jesus calls us to do the same. By living out our personal lives through a deeply rooted faith in Jesus, God draws our friends, neighbours, colleagues and even strangers to Him. God promises to walk with us through the challenges of life. He challenges us to do things that seem unconventional or difficult because He loves us and wants us to be free.
He calls us to go deeper and to live generously: to give time to stop, look around and focus on Him and what He’s calling each of us to be part of His local church so we can grow more like him; and to give financially, so the local church can operate and thrive.
Ways to Give
We are grateful for all gifts received whether regularly through bank accounts, one-off gifts or in the offerings given Sunday by Sunday. We encourage everyone to consider prayerfully how much they should give to God’s work and to give regularly. Regular giving means that we can budget more accurately and helps our cash flow.
Where possible we encourage people to give through the:
Parish Giving Scheme
Warfield uses the Parish Giving Scheme run by the Oxford Diocese. Details of the scheme are available at this link https://www.parishgivingscheme.org.uk/for-donors/. A monthly, quarterly or annual debit is taken by Direct Debit from your bank. The Parish Giving Scheme automatically credits Warfield Church the amount plus any associated Gift Aid on a monthly basis. You can sign up to the scheme by post or by phone.
To sign up by phone, call the dedicated sign-up line on 0333 002 1271. You will need your personal bank account details and the name and PGS code of your congregation. These are:
St Michael’s Warfield 270627337
All Saints Warfield 27A627337
Eternity Bullbrook Warfield 27B627337
St Peter’s Warfield 27C627337
Encounter Church Warfield 27D627337
St Andrew’s Warfield 270627326
You will also be asked if you are eligible to gift aid your donation and if you wish to increase your gift annually by inflation.
To sign up by post, download the relevant form for your congregation (see links below). The PGS information sheet (see link below) gives additional information and should also be downloaded.
If you already give through PGS and would like to change the amount you give, you just need to send an email to [email protected] quoting your PGS reference number.
If you want to make a one-off donation and are a taxpayer then please ensure that you have completed a Gift Aid Form if you have not done so in the past. The form is available here.
Warfield Church can then claim 25% of your donation from HMRC. Payment can be made by cheque (made out to ‘Warfield PCC’ and sent to the church office) or BACS transfer.
(Some people have had problems when making donations as some banks require the full name of the account, which is 'Parochial Church Council of the Ecclesiastical Parish of Warfield'. This doesn't seem to be a problem with all banks)
