HOW TO GIVE

"Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
(2 Corinthians 9:7)

At St Barnabas we believe that we should give regularly, faithfully and generously. this happens when we plan our giving and commit to it. This is core to our view of church and is included in our Markers of Membership. You can read about what we believe about giving in our Finance brochure "Mission and Money".
 

This document lays out the facts about Strategy, Finances and Giving at St Barnabas.
 

 


There are a number of different ways to give at StBs:

Online Direct Transfer

Whichever way you give to God's work through
St Barnabas, please fill out a Gift Aid Declaration if you are a UK taxpayer. This enables us to claim back 25p from the taxman for every £1 given.

Download a gift aid declaration here, or fill one out online here.
 

Higher Rate Gift Aid

Gift aiding your donation allows the church to reclaim the basic rate tax that you pay at 20%. Higher rate taxpayers can also claim back the additional higher rate tax either through your tax return or by asking HMRC to amend your tax code. For St Bs to benefit, it is important that you add the additional tax reclaimed to your giving.

On Sundays

Every week at our Sunday services there is an opportunity to make a financial offering.
You can use the giving envelopes provided to give via cash or cheque.

Cheque

If you would like to send us a cheque, please send it to
The Accounts Manager, St Barnabas Church, Holden Road, Woodside Park, N12 7DN and make it payable to 'St Barnabas PCC'.

Payroll Giving or 'Give-as-you-earn'

Many companies allow you to give directly at source from your salary, reducing the tax you pay, and increasing your giving to include the tax benefit. This also saves administration time for St Bs, and St Bs receives the benefit of any higher rate tax without it needing to be claimed back through your tax return. Some companies operating GAYE giving will also 'top up' your charitable giving. It’s worth asking your employer about this. (Do check whether any administration fees associated with GAYE make this the right choice for you.)

Matched Giving

Some larger companies, as part of their corporate responsibility programme, also have matched giving schemes, so that when you give to charity, the company makes a contribution as well. This effectively increases your donation for free.

Giving Through Your Own Company

If you run your own business and choose to give through your company rather than as an individual, this is deducted from your profits before calculating your tax liability, so will reduce the Corporation Tax due. This is true whether your donation is in the form of money or goods-in-kind. The tax saved can then be added to your giving.

Interested In Leaving A Legacy?

It may seem a long way away, but remember that giving after your death can be tax free too. Gifts to charity in a will are tax exempt and can be used to bring an estate below the threshold for inheritance tax. If you give more than 10% of your estate, it will reduce the inheritance tax rate too. You can give items of value, such as jewellery, as well as money. Details of how to plan for legacy giving to St Bs are included in our leaflet “Legacies and Wills” available to download here:
