SUPPORT YOUR PARISH
Running a parish, supporting our priest, and maintaining our church building (to nobody’s surprise!) cost money. Our parishioners give generously, but it is important to our work and our witness to ensure the income continues.
Sign up for Gift Aid – if you are a taxpayer, this enables the parish to claim back tax you have paid on your donation from the Government, increasing the value of your donation by 25% or more. Forms are available in church and should be given to our Treasurer when completed.
We have a cardreader for cashless donations – all you have to do is enter the amount you want to donate and present your card. If you have signed up for Gift Aid, please add your name in the book on the candle desk and tick to confirm whether you are making a donation or a purchase – there is no need to detail how much you are paying, but we can claim back tax on gift aid donations.
You can donate for free while shopping online using the EasyFundraising website/app.

You just access your usual site via easyfunding, selecting our church as your chosen charity (Orthodox Church of the Nativity of the Mother of God – Bristol, and they give a percentage to the church. It’s easy once you have done it once, and you can download a reminder to activate the donation every time you shop. It all adds up.
