How do I give?

We need over a £1,000 a week to run Holy Trinity Church, Theale.

Planned giving is one of the principal ways of belonging to this parish, and it is the most effective way to give to your church. You simply commit to giving a regular amount each month direct from your bank account. It can be easily set up, amended and cancelled. The benefits to you are that you show your determined membership to Holy Trinity Theale, you do so even when you are not at a service, and you do not have to suddenly find loose change when the collection bag comes round. The benefits for the parish are that we know the money is pledged and we can budget ahead accordingly.

Gift Aid reclamations are a very important part of our income, but in order to claim under the scheme, we need you to make a once-off authorisation. Please consider completing a Gif-Aid Declaration form. This will increase your gift by 25p for every £1 given (at current rate), at no extra cost to us or you.

Giving by the Parish Giving Scheme

The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) has been developed by the Church of England as a way of encouraging a 21st century solution for regular giving.

With the help of the Parish Giving Scheme, donors benefit from a system that is secure, confidential and easy to use, while supporting the Church today and for the future.

There are significant benefits compared to other ways of giving.

  • Gift aid is automatically processed every month.
  • Givers can choose to automatically increase their giving by the rate of inflation every year if they wish.
  • Givers can choose to give anonymously if they would like to.

Parish Giving Scheme forms are available inside the enterance to Holy Trinity church, or by contacting Wendy Larkin by emailing

Give as you earn

If your employer has a give-as-you-earn scheme this may be the simplest way to give. There is no need to fill in a gift aid form as your contribution to the work of our church is made via a deduction from your pre-tax earnings, which can be particularly beneficial to higher rate taxpayers as there is no need to enter your contribution on your tax return in order to claim higher rate relief.
