The Parochial Church Council relies on the goodwill of its parishioners for its income.
This can be as cash put onto the collection plate during a service, by putting it in a Gift Aid envelope as part of regular planned giving, or by the use of a Standing Order from your bank.
You can also donate from your on-line banking or mobile phone by making a payment to 'Richmond With Hudswell PCC' Bank Sort Code: 40-38-19 Account: 50701793.
We also accept Debit and Credit Card payments just ask one of the Churchwardens or Sidespeople in church.

Charity of the Month
On the first Sunday of the month we have a voluntary collection. These alternate each month between overseas and home charities. In the last year this has raised approximately £2000. Charities have included The Samaritans, Water Aid, Rug Aid, Darlington's Women Refuge, World Vision and Emmaus. We have recently supported Playgrounds for Palestine - a charity which raises money to provide much needed play areas in Palestine. Here is a photograph of the second playground just built.
PCCs are legal charities and, as such, are exempt from income tax. The tax which has been paid on the money given by the congregation can be recovered from the Inland Revenue. The PCC prefers tax efficient giving. More information is available at www.churchofengland.org/about-us/funding/giftaid.aspx
The church can provide you with an information pack, which contains information on planned giving, including a Gift Aid declaration form and a banks standing order form. Please pick one up from the back of church and once it is completed please give it to one of the Sides people, the Verger or Churchwardens to hand on to the Treasury team.
