All Saints’ has recently adopted the strapline: ‘The Community of All Saints’: living, thoughtful, caring faith’. Our mission is to be at the heart of the wider community, to be an outward and inclusive church, serving the population of central and west Gosforth, our worship inspiring us to be transformed and to bring transformation.
In order for us to continue and develop our mission and ministry you will appreciate that All Saints’ needs a solid financial base.
It costs over £200,000 per annum to run the church. We are therefore asking all members of the planned giving to consider increasing their donation and asking other parishioners, not currently on the planned giving scheme, to join the scheme. If it helps, the average across the Church of England nationally is £11.96 per week and donations at All Saints’ vary from about £1 per week to over £100 per week, but, of course, any level of Planned Giving donation, large or small, is welcomed by All Saints’. All Planned Giving donations are confidential to the Treasurer and the Planned Giving Officer only.
Increasing the donation or joining the scheme can be done by either completing a Standing Order Form and submitting it to your bank or modifying or setting up a Standing Order online using the bank details contained on the form.
Donations from donors who are UK tax payers can be increased by 25% by claiming Gift Aid the UK government. The Gift Aid Form allows us to claim this gift aid from the government. If this is applicable, you should complete the form and return it to Margaret Patterson (Gift Aid Recorder) or Fred Carr (Treasurer), All Saints' Parish Office, All Saints' Centre, West Avenue, Gosforth, NE3 4ES
