Like any ‘not-for-profit’ organisation, we depend upon our members for financial support.
At Holy Trinity we only rarely pass the collection plate around during a service but the plate is always by the entrance door and people are invited to leave their donation for church funds in the plate as they enter church.
There are a number of ways of giving:
- The most obvious is simply to put some money into the plate.
- However, if you pay tax, you might consider filling in a Gift Aid envelope (which you should find on the ledge in front of your pew). Simply put the money in the envelop and fill in the details on the outside of the envelope and place in the collection plate. That way we will be able to claim the tax back on your donation from the Inland Revenue.
- If you would like to give regularly under the Gift Aid Scheme, please speak to our Gift Aid Secretary, Rod Key who will explain what to do and give you the relevant forms to fill in.
- If you would like to give by Standing Order or in some other way, please speak to our Treasurer, Peter Hutchings (moc.tenretnitbnull@sgnihctuhapretep) who will be happy to advise you.
On the last Sunday of each month we have a retiring collection for one of our chosen charities.
Cheques should be made payable to ‘Holy Trinity Scottish Episcopal Church’.
Members of the Fifty-Fifty Club commit to buying one or more numbered ‘subscriptions’ each month. Half the money raised is given to church funds, and half is given out in prizes, three of the subscription numbers being drawn from the tombola drum on the second Sunday of each month. There are two prizes of equal size, and a third prize of half the other two. During 2012, the first two monthly prizes exceeded £80 each, with third prizes of over £40.
The Fifty-Fifty Club is registered with Fife Council as a “small lottery”, and has been operating very successfully for several years, during which it has been able to contribute almost £7,000 to Holy Trinity funds. If you would like to join, please contact John Kennedy (firstname.lastname@example.org).
