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.
Cashless donations can be made to St Mary’s Church:
- By internet banking to ‘Richmond with Hudswell PCC’
Sort Code 40-38-19. Account No. 50701793 (Please note - HSBC have recently changed their verification process - all the details are correct but they think that, as the name of the account is more the 18 characters allowed for the name, it is causing problems and advise that people insert as much of the account name as they can and the rest of the account name in the box that is for verification.)
- Give By Text (PAYM free service) Text 07960 869955
- By debit/credit card or by Apple or Google Pay

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.
