One of the ways in which you can help the parish is by providing financial support and there are various ways in which you can do this.
As with most other charitable organizations, we run a Gift Aid scheme, which is an enormous help with parish funds. If you are a UK tax payer, please consider becoming part of this scheme. We can reclaim 25p from HMRC for every pound donated by you. Joining is very simple and only requires a signature. For further information, please contact the parish office.

Should you prefer to pay by standing order, please use the form provided GA Standing Order Form.
Leave a Legacy
Remember the Church in your will.
Have you ever considered leaving the Church a legacy in your Will? You will obviously want to provide for family and loved ones first, but a donation to the church, however small, will be gratefully received.
Gifts such as this should be bequeathed to ‘RC Archdiocese of Southwark’ for the use of English Martyrs Church, Streatham. For further information, please contact the parish office.
Payroll giving or Give As You earn (GAYE) is a valuable way of assisting the parish to boost its funds, without you having to give extra. Does your workplace have a Give As You Earn Donation Scheme? If so, is this something you might consider joining?
GAYE allows your workplace payroll department to set up a regular donation that comes straight out of your salary. The deduction is made before tax, so if you are a basic rate taxpayer and you donated £10, only £8 will be deducted from your take-home pay. If you are a higher rate taxpayer, the incentives are even greater.
Your company may offer other incentives, for example, if you join the GAYE scheme, your company may give a one-off gift, or, they may have a Match Funding benefit whereby they will add their own portion to your donation.
Many companies nowadays are happy to facilitate this scheme whereby you can donate direct from your salary. Check with your Payroll, HR or Personnel department to see if this scheme is available to you.
Parish Fundraising – Old boiler replacement
Our boiler is old and cranky – but at the ripe old age of 40 what can one expect – it often breaks down and leaves the Church cold for many days at a time especially during the winter. We are really looking for your help and support – anything you could contribute would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity. Please click here to go to JustGiving page.
