Event description

Description

Particularly aimed at clergy, Treasurers, Gift Aid Secretaries, PCC members but open to all.

The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) is a 21st Century solution to offset one of the greatest threats to parish income: static giving. The scheme helps you to collect and maintain parish income on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. Each donation is restricted to your parish church and Gift Aid is collected and remitted to the PCC each month. If this scheme becomes the principal funding method for your Church, you will have inflation-proofed your giving, maximized your cash-flow and minimised your administration. This will free up your parish to focus on other important priorities. Come and hear from other parishes how they have benefitted from the Scheme and how your PCC can join.

Guest speakers include the Bishop, Dr John Preston (National Stewardship Advisor) and Eleanor Stead (CEO Parish Giving Scheme). This event is free.
