Parish Giving Scheme


This exciting resource is offered to help your church members give more efficiently to their church and save your parish valuable time! The Parish Giving Scheme™ does not need to replace your current planned giving arrangements but can be given as another option for donors to consider. This resource is offered free to all parishes across the diocese through the generosity of Allchurches Trust Limited.

What is it?

A direct debit covenant between a donor and parish that includes optional inflationary giving and automated collection of Gift Aid. The scheme was launched in our diocese in 2017 and has now been adopted by over a quarter of parishes in our diocese – and this is growing each month!


Why should my parish sign-up?

  • To maximise planned giving and number of planned givers
  • To increase and improve cash flow, especially through Gift Aid recovery
  • To combat static giving as the majority of donors choose to index-link their gift
  • To future proof and protect against an ever-increasing digital society
  • An opportunity to talk about giving and launch a stewardship campaign
  • Its free! Costs are met by the diocese and are wholly funded by Allchurches Trust
  • Professional, tried and tested materials
  • To lighten your administration burden.
