Giving

Christmas time is all about giving and receiving. We know many of you like to give to our church but can we remind you about the 3 best ways.

1 Parish Giving Scheme – if you pay taxes and give regularly this is the best way – it takes all the admin away from us and works really well.  This organisation is so good it was just bought by the Church of England! Joining the Parish Giving Scheme makes it all so much easier for us – and easier for you too!  Basically you give to them – they claim the tax and give us a bigger gift than you gave! 25% more!

2 Using the Card reader at the back of church.  If it is not working you can give by Card and include Giftaid here. Please remember we can claim 25% back on gifts of £30 and under.

3 Cash in the collection – we like this!  But it is the hardest way for us to process and claim the tax back.  But if you need to give that way – bless you and thank you! Please remember we can claim 25% back on gifts of £30 and under.

United Service for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Will be at Bradford Cathedral at 6pm on Sunday 21st January.
The theme for this service is: “Be-Longing:  Praying for Unity amidst Injustice” and is an attempt to explore how Christian Unity might contribute to the promotion of justice across all levels of society, particularly this year, the 30th anniversary of the murder of Stephen Lawrence, concentrating on racial justice.
