Donating to the work of St Mark's

Regular Giving

Regular donations are so important to our church to enable us to carry out our ministry and to run and maintain our buildings in the knowledge that the funds will be available when required. To make regular giving easier we have joined the Parish Giving Scheme (or PGS for short) which is a national scheme supported by the Diocese.

The PGS is a Direct Debit service, which enables you to give on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis. We receive 100% of your donation and Gift Aid is automatically claimed for us, which means reduced administration and less work for our Treasurer and Gift Aid Secretary (though you do not have to be eligible for Gift Aid yourself to join the scheme)

If you would like to know more you can watch this video to see how PGS works.

If you already donate regularly by standing order we are hoping that you will make the switch and if you are new to regular giving we encourage you to donate via PGS.

Please follow this link to join:

If you would prefer to join by telephone or post then please contact the Treasurer for details.


One off Giving

One off donations can be made on-line through our Give a Little page

A lasting gift for St Mark’s Church

Leaving a legacy

Legacy gifts can make a huge difference to churches. Each year, gifts in wills, ranging from £100s to £100,000s are received. Faithful witnesses leaving generous legacies have enabled churches to invest in their buildings, pioneer new ministries, and sustain a welcoming presence in their communities. 

Why should you write a will?

Writing a will means you choose:

  • How you would like to share your property and possessions;
  • Who you would like to look after any children under the age of 18;
  • How to support any charities or churches that are important to you.

Without a will, these decisions will be made according to pre-ordained rules, and by the courts, which may be different from your wishes. Leaving a will gives you peace of mind and lifts a burden from loved ones after you are gone.

To make it easier the Church of England has partnered with Farewill, the UK’s favourite will-writer, so anyone can write a simple will online for free, in as little as 30 minutes. You can find out more by visiting .

We strongly advise seeing a solicitor for more complicated wills, or for people wishing to review their existing will or add a codicil.

A gift for future generations

After you have made provision for your family and friends, we hope you’ll also consider leaving a gift in your will to St Mark’s. A legacy is a valuable expression of how meaningful a church has been during your time there. It’s a way to give thanks - a lasting testimony to the faithfulness, goodness and generosity of God.

The policy of the PCC is to use legacies to help fund additional mission or development projects in the parish, whether buildings, equipment or staff. Circumstances change over the years, so church members are encouraged to leave legacies for the general purposes of the parish. The PCC will discuss the most appropriate use of the legacy in the light of current projects and the donor’s known areas of interest in the church (for example, children and youth, music, buildings).

You may also receive tax benefits for including a gift to St Mark’s in your will. A gift in your will to a charity is free of inheritance tax and may also reduce the amount of tax payable on the rest of your will. Find out more here 


Please consider leaving a legacy to St Mark’s
