Why Does St Peter’s Need your Help?
Like all Church of England churches, St Peter’s Church is entirely self-funding. We are stewards of something quite special: our faith, our church, our resources.
This is a small parish, and our commitments to spreading the gospel, outreach, supporting our link church in Ghana, providing our parish share to the Portsmouth Diocese for paid clergy and maintaining the building, do not come cheaply
This is where you can help.
Different Forms of Giving
‘One-off’ donation Please see the separate page => donate on the above menu where your one-off donation can be made and will be much appreciated. This donation is not used to pay for anything.
3 Ways for Regular giving
1) Parish Giving Scheme. To donate on a regular basis, the most cost effective scheme for St Peter’s, and the one which we recommend, is to use the Parish Giving Scheme – details at “www.parishgiving.org.uk“. The website enables people to complete the necessary giving details on-line, (St Peter’s Titchfield has a church ID which is 290629025). Alternately speak to the stewardship secretary or the church treasurer who will be delighted to help.
2) Standing Orders You can give money on a regular basis, through your bank, by setting up a standing order. Giving can be made on a monthly,quarterly or annual basis. Your bank would need St Peter’s bank account details
Account name: PCC of Titchfield
Sort code: 30-93-17
Account No. 00412040
It is necessary to make a signed Declaration to put this in place, which gives the donors name, address, date when the giving is to start, the amount and details of the donor’s bank account. ? is this still applicable . It will handled by the individual’s bank when setting up the standing order
3) Blue Envelopes Giving regularly by cash or cheque suits those who may not have a bank account or simply do not wish to feel quite so tied. A pledge is made to give a stated amount each week, month or quarter. It is similar to a Declaration except no bank details are necessary.
Numbered blue envelopes are allocated to an individual who puts them in the collection during a service in church. It is not necessary to attend church each week as you can fill the envelope every week at home and then bring all your filled ones next time you are able to come to church.
These envelopes can be found in the Church
Yellow Envelopes. If you come to church occasionally or wish to give irregularly, and you are a tax payer and wish the church to reclaim tax on your gift, then you should use a yellow envelope which can be found on each pew. All you have to do is put your gift in the envelope, complete the details on the front of the envelope and put it into the collection. This means of gifting is mainly for one-off gifts.
If you wish to know more, then contact our Stewardship Recorder whose details are shown below.

Gift Aid is a government sponsored and approved scheme to enable tax effective giving by individuals to charities in the UK. Originally introduced in the Finance Act 1990, it has been revised substantially several times , and continues to be revised regularly. Gift Aid allows the nominated charity to claim back from HMRC income tax already paid by the donor at the current basic rate of tax for the direct benefit of the charity.
By definition gift aid can only be reclaimed from income, not from any donation made from capital. Giving can be in the form of a standing order on a bank, by cheque or in cash. Changes of address, bank, or in the gift, to increase and decrease, or to stop, can be made but should be notified to the Stewardship Recorder in writing
