How the Scheme works

The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) is a Direct Debit donation management system offered to support parishes fund their mission and ministry. It reduces the burden of work on parish volunteers and provides a professional service to donors. It enables you to:

  • Donate monthly, quarterly or annually by Direct Debit
  • To sign up to inflation-proof giving annually
  • To enhance your gift to the parish by having Gift Aid at 25% added
  • To give anonymously if you prefer
  • To do so securely

At present, you can set up a Direct Debit to donate regularly to your church or parish via a paper Direct Debit form – available from your PGS parish representative or via the 0333 002 1271 phone service

The Chase Benefice

The Parish Giving Scheme is simple and easy to set up, saves on administration within the Benefice and, with the additional advantage that donors can increase their giving by inflation automatically each year, safeguards against static giving. But the real advantage for us, during this period of ‘lockdown’ and the suspension of public worship, has been that our regular planned giving has remained the same! This has been an unexpected blessing and we are so grateful to be part of the scheme. We commend it without hesitation!

The Rev'd Mark Abrey

Diocese of Gloucester

A fabulous and well-run scheme, which enables me to contribute financially to what God is doing in the Diocese of Gloucester. I love the fact that the administration is done for me and I know that my financial giving will automatically be increased in line with inflation.

The Rt Rev'd Rachel Treweek, Bishop of Gloucester
