Parish Giving Scheme


The Parish Giving Scheme is an excellent way to encourage greater generosity within your church. PGS offers significant benefits compared to other forms of giving:

  • It's free and your church receives the full value of all donations every month
  • Gift Aid is automatically processed every month, reducing admin for church volunteers and improving cash flow
  • Givers can choose to automatically increase their giving by the rate of inflation every year. This tackles the problem of 'static giving', where people’s giving ordinarily remains the same year on year, while the costs of the church rise continually, due to inflation
  • Givers can sign up by paper form, over the telephone or online, making it a great resource for both rural and urban parishes
  • Adopting a new scheme offers a great opportunity to discuss regular giving with the church community.

If you're an existing donor wanting to make changes to your direct debit, you can do this on your online account, over the phone via 0333 002 1260 or by email at info@parishgiving.org.uk

You can meet the PGS team and their mission here.

The scheme is a registered charity and is used by most dioceses in the Church of England.
