Private Prayer

Private Prayer

Note from the Treasurer

The Covid-19 crisis brings many challenges to us all, including significant financial challenges to many people, and I would like to express my thanks to those who continue to support the Church financially through this time.

The financial challenge to your Church is also considerable. It continues to receive the giving from regular Parish Giving Scheme donations and bank standing orders but the closure of the Church buildings means that no income is coming in from gift aid envelopes and cash collections at services, wedding fees or from fundraising events. However, the major overhead costs for ministry, insurance, minimal heating, maintenance and administration continue.

If you wish to make a donation during the closure but are unsure how to, you can do so in the following ways:-

  1. By direct debit through the Parish Giving Scheme, for which you can now sign up for on telephone number 0333 002 1271. Please have at hand the parish code number 190619021 and your bank details. For more information please go to http://www.parishgivingscheme.org.uk.
  2. By cheque made payable to “St Andrews Parochial Church Council” and post to me at 67 Conaglen Road, Leicester LE2 8LE.
  3. By a direct online BACS payment to the church account, St Andrews Parochial Church Council, account number 77068302 sort code 090151. Please quote ref “donation”.

Thank you for your support,

John Robb
