Giving

Time, energy and finances are given generously to enable Life Church to pursue the mission God has given us.  This page shows how you can give financially. ‘But since you excel in everything – in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you – see that you also excel in this grace of giving.’ 2 Corinthians 8 v 7 Below you will find several ways in which you can give.  Don’t forget to Gift Aid your gifts.  If you are a UK tax payer the Government will give us an extra 25%, at no extra cost to you.

Gift Aid

For all UK tax payers, we can claim back 25p tax for every £1 you donate, providing you will have paid that much tax by the end of the tax year.  Gift Aid is a very efficient way to give, because if you give £40 the church can claim £10 from the Government so it means your gift is worth £50. If you are eligible it is well worth doing. If you are a UK taxpayer and would like Life Church to claim Gift Aid on your donation please download a Gift Aid Form, complete it in full and either bring it to church or post it to: Finance Manager, Life Church, West Richmond Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9EB

(If you do not pay tax we cannot claim back Gift Aid.)
