There have been parishioners who have asked about continuing with their weekly offerings during the Covid-19 crisis and Church closure. We are advised by the Diocese as follows:
Keep your Weekly Offering or Gift Aid donations in your envelopes at home please, until this crisis is ended.
To set up a regular STANDING ORDER or to just make a one off donation please print off and complete a ‘Standing Order Mandate Form’ from this website and forward this to your Bank.
If you have personal ONLINE BANKING you will be able to set this up yourself, you will just need the following information. (Please also be assured that all bank payments are accounted for in Parish Audit Trails.) Account Name: Ss Anthony of Padua & Francis, HSBC – Sort Code: 40.34.45 and Account No. 61165089
‘GIFT AID’ for the first time and are a UK Taxpayer, you will need to download a ‘Gift Aid Form’ from this website and pass this to the Parish Office. Once everything is back to normal, because this is a legal document required by HMRC, the Office is required to forward it the Diocese. Please be assured that in completing this form means that the Parish will receive a small percentage back from HMRC and it will NOT affect your own personal tax in any way.
