Giving to Tranent Parish Church

 

This web page has been put together to inform you about some of the ways in which you can give financially to Tranent Parish Church. We appreciate that the current situation has caused hardship for some of our members and are extremely grateful for every gift that we receive. We are a registered Scottish charity, reg. no SC 017423.

THANK YOU!


WFO Scheme

As we are unable to meet at the church building for services at present, due to the social distancing restrictions, some Church members have asked us how to maintain their giving. An increasing number of our members donate by weekly or monthly standing order and if you use our Weekly Freewill Offering envelopes you may wish to consider using this method. By setting up a standing order and using the reference “WFO” followed by your envelope number you can maintain the anonymity of your donation while still allowing our Gift Aid Co-ordinator to claim Gift Aid, where appropriate.

 

Gift Aid

If you are a taxpayer you can effectively increase the amount of your donation by 25% by signing a Gift Aid declaration, allowing the tax you have already paid to be reclaimed for the Church. If you cease to pay tax, please let the Gift Aid Co-ordinator know.

 

Direct to the Church Bank Account

You may wish to make a donation directly to the Church bank account either as a standing order or as a single BACS payment.

For information on setting up a standing order, for the paying in details for a direct payment to the Church account or if you wish to complete a Gift Aid declaration please contact:
