Why should I give to Holy Trinity, Prestwood?

Holy Trinity relies on the generosity of its congregation for its survival and development. We receive no external funding, such as grants from government, local council or the Church. This is why we need to ask you to think about how much you can give to us.

How much does it cost to run Holy Trinity, Prestwood?

Holy Trinity needs over £150,000 of income each year—that’s more than £2,500 each week. This pays for items like clergy, music, children’s work, and all the costs of ministry; heating, lighting, printing, postage, repairs and insurance. These may not all sound exciting, but it all has to be paid for! Don’t forget that all these bills need to be paid for the six days a week that you don’t come to Church, and for the Sundays that you aren’t here.

You can give regularly through the Parish Giving Scheme.  The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) is a secure, established service for managing Direct Debit donations, designed to support churches to fund their mission and ministry. 

We would like you to make a regular monthly payment, as this helps us to plan ahead for the year. A sizable proportion of us give between £50 and £250 per month, with some giving less and some giving more. We all need to give proportionately to support the work of our church. This means thinking about what other costs we have in our lives, and valuing our church and its life sensibly within that. 

The PGS makes it possible for donors to:

  • Donate monthly, quarterly or annually by Direct Debit
  • Sign up to inflation-linked giving annually
  • Enhance your gift to your church by having Gift Aid at 25% added to your giving
  • Give securely and donate anonymously, if you prefer
