Giving to the Church by Standing Order

From the AGM we remain concerned about our financial position. We have been helped with a couple of grants towards the costs of our new boilers and roof CCTV, but our ordinary income is still down.

Following a couple of requests, our new bank account for standing orders are below. If you are still giving to our old bank account we still get the money, but there are delays and it is not as convenient for Gill Harvey our treasurer.

Account Name:                       Dronfield Parish Church

Account Number:                    6589 3359

Sort Code:                               08 – 92 – 99

As always, thank you to everyone who gives in so many ways. I have been encouraged by 4 extra substantial donations this week. You can also give by cheque or cash as normal, by Debit / Credit card (see Phyl Charles) or by Just Giving on our website. And if you pay tax, and could fill in a gift aid form, then even better. Please see Katherine Shaw Thank you.
