Parish Giving Scheme (PGS)


Parish Giving Scheme

One of the key initiatives the Diocese is encouraging all parishes to explore is the Parish Giving Scheme. Many parishes have already joined the scheme and we encourage all to explore the benefits of taking part.

The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) is a 21st century solution to offset one of the greatest threats to parish income which is static giving. Donations made through this scheme use a Direct Debit. This can be made on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. Each donation is restricted to a parish church.

If this scheme becomes the principal funding method for your Church, you will have inflation-proofed your giving, maximized your cash-flow and minimised your administration. This will free up your parish to focus on other important priorities.
