Get Involved Congregational Giving Congregational Giving For members of the congregation, giving is essential to support the day to day running of our Cathedral. It is also an important part of Christian faith and commitment. Congregational giving provides vital income which supports the everyday work and mission of the Cathedral. It keeps the place warm and well lit, contributes to the cost of our Clergy and enables our ministry to young and old alike. A list of charities most recently supported by congregational giving can be viewed here. As we face the current challenges of maintaining our mission and ministry in an uncertain future, the support of the congregation is more important than ever. Give through the Parish Giving Scheme To read Dean Jo’s letter in October 2023 on Living Generously please click below: A letter from The Dean As members of our community, we ask: If you are a member of the congregation: affirm your commitment to our Cathedral community. Those who do not currently give regularly: please consider doing so. A regular contribution of £25 a month - or whatever level you can afford - would make a real difference. Current givers: please consider your current giving. Please increase your giving if you can. If all those currently giving increased their contribution by £10 per month, or 10%, whichever is larger, that would produce an increased income for the Cathedral of at least £3,000 per month. Giving through the Parish Giving Scheme is very easy. You can now set up, manage and amend your giving online or by calling 0333 002 1271. Your regular gift will come directly to the Cathedral. Please use Parish Code 320632001. Signing up to give regularly guarantees the Cathedral a reliable income which is more vital now than ever. If you have questions about your giving, please contact any member of Clergy or email the Congregational Giving Team. For those who do not currently give regularly: please consider doing so. Affirm your commitment to the Cathedral community. Signing up to give regularly guarantees the Cathedral a regular income which, with the volatility of our other sources of income, is essential. A regular contribution of £30 a month - or whatever level you can afford - would make a real difference. You can give in one of two ways: o Use the Parish Giving Scheme to set up a Direct Debit Register online or call the dedicated telephone number 0333 002 1271. Lines are open Monday to Friday, 9 – 5pm. Alternatively email [email protected] to request a paper form, or o Set up a Standing Order Contact [email protected] for details. For current givers: please consider increasing your giving. If all those currently giving increased their contribution by £15 per month, or 10% whichever is larger, that would produce an increased income for the Cathedral of at least £3,000 per month. This would help us support the ongoing streaming of our services and support our ministry with children and young people. o If you already give via Parish Giving Scheme Call 0333 002 1260 to amend your giving or email [email protected] o If you already give by Standing Order Amend your own Standing Order and let the Recorders know with a note via the Recorders pigeon hole or by emailing [email protected] Thank you to all those who support our mission.
