Financial Contributions

A financial commitment to the church recognises the role St Mary’s plays in our lives and its broader role within the local community. We are encouraged to contribute in proportion to our ability.

Make your gift go further, at no cost to you. As long as you are a UK taxpayer, St Mary’s Barnes can claim a further 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate.

If you already give regularly but have not registered for Gift Aid, we encourage you to do so now!

For those who do not have access either to a computer or printing facilities, the forms referred to are available from the back of the church, or by contacting the Parish Administrator (details at head of web page).


Regular Donations

Regular donations allow St Mary’s to make plans for the future with confidence.

If you do not already have a regular commitment to our church we hope you will consider one of the following options:

  • setting up a Standing Order Form with your bank (if you do this, please also let us know by email to the Parish Office (see top of web page) so we recognise your donations) OR
  • placing cash or a cheque in our Gift Aid Donation envelopes which are in the pews (or complete the online declaration below)

If you already give regularly but have not registered for Gift Aid, we encourage you to do so now!   (scroll down to register online or download the form).

One-off Donations

If you would like to make a one-off donation perhaps to commemorate a special event, such as a baptism or wedding, or in memory of someone close to you, you can make your donation:

  • online by filling out our form below OR
  • by sending a cheque to St Mary Barnes, Church Road, London, SW13 9HL.

We should be very grateful if we could claim gift aid on your donation either by filling in the gift aid declaration in the online section below or by accompanying your cheque with a completed gift aid form which you can download here.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK tax payer, the church can claim an additional 25% on your donations through the HMRC Gift Aid scheme, at no cost to yourself if you pay sufficient tax at basic rate to cover the tax reclaimed on the donation by the church. In addition, you may benefit if you are a higher rate tax payer by having the amount taxed at higher rate reduced by the amount of the donation, and taxed at basic rate instead.   In order for us to do this we will require a Gift Aid declaration
