Giving

An invitation to pray

  • Thank God for His faithfulness and provision to St Giles over hundreds of years.
  • Thank God for those who already invest their treasure, time and talents in St Giles.
  • Pray for everyone in church to have open hearts and minds about how God is asking them to invest in His kingdom.
  • Pray personally that God would guide you in reviewing your giving.
  • Ask for guidance and protection for the whole church over the area of giving.

How can I give to St Giles?

St Giles church members contribute to the life and work of the church in many different ways. While the information below relates to financial giving, other pages on this site explain the variety of ways you can get involved and contribute in other ways to St Giles’ many ministries.

Standing Order

This is a simple option for those who want their giving to be regular and consistent. It also reduces our admin costs and helps with budgeting. To do this, please complete a Standing Order mandate which you can obtain from the church welcome desk, the church office or download here 

Cheques and cash

Gifts can be placed in the boxes available at each of our Sunday services or posted to the church office. Cheques should be made payable to ‘St Giles PCC’.
