All Saints Whitstable relies on donations from church members and its income from hall hire, plus income from "occasional offices" - such as weddings - in order to keep financially solvent.

We do not receive grants from local or national government, and so have to rely on these sources of income to keep financially afloat.

We also are in the process of raising funds for our Churchyard paths and Car Parks to be re-covered with new tarmac, and are looking for people to start a fundraising committee for this purpose. We are happy to receive donations for this appeal now if you so wish, and promise to set all donations aside in a designated fund for this purpose.

These are the ways you can give:

You may wish to give direct to the church through a standing order or direct debit or through our weekly "envelope" scheme. To discuss these various options please contact Barbara Tinson our Stewardship secretary on 01227 263288 or by emailing her at beetee@talktalk.net


GIFT AID
If your donation can be gift aided, enabling us to recover a further 25% of your donation from the treasury, please ask Barbara to send you or email you a gift aid form, or alternatively simply send her your name, address, and state that your donations are eligible for gift aid relief.

FINALLY... THANK YOU
From all of us here at All Saints - a huge thank you for your generosity. Your gift will remain confidential and will only be known about by our treasurer and stewardship secretary.

THANK YOU!
