Christian Giving to St Andrew’s
Giving to St Andrew’s
“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” – 1 Peter 4:10
To provide our service in Roundhay, Leeds and the wider world, we are grateful for the ongoing support that is received from the members and friends of St Andrew’s.
What we give to St Andrew’s is a personal choice and reflects what we are comfortable with providing. In turn, St Andrew’s strives to be a good steward of all the income that it receives and to manage its activities as effectively and efficiently as it can.
It costs about £195,000 a year to run St Andrew’s, which works out at £534 a day. These figures include our contribution to the national URC.
Most of our members choose to make a regular donation through online giving, telephone banking or by standing order. Making a regular donation helps St Andrew’s with its financial planning through the year, and helps you budget and to be assured that your gift is being received. If you want to start regular giving then please contact:
The Treasurer, St Andrew’s Roundhay URC, Shaftesbury Avenue, Leeds LS8 1DS or email email@example.com.
If you are a U.K. taxpayer, then by completing a Gift Aid form, St Andrew’s can increase your gift by 25% at no cost to you.
You can download a standing order form here, and also a gift aid declaration from here. Please then pass these on to our treasurer using the above contact details.
Gifts can also be made through cash or cheque at one of our worship services, and we are exploring scope for contactless giving in future. Any cheques should be made payable to St. Andrew’s Roundhay URC.
