How to donate to St James Church

This church is funded entirely by the generosity of the community to meet its annual running costs of £3,200 and donations to charities and we are so grateful for the gifts we receive, be they regular or one-off.

Gift Aid

Charities can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give if you choose to Gift Aid your donations. It will not cost you any extra when making a donation to our church. If you would like to enhance your donation to the church by 25% through Gift Aid, we will need confirmation of your name and address, and that you are a UK taxpayer. Your donations will qualify for Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, have paid enough Income Tax or Capital Gains tax in that tax year and are donating your own money. For more information about Gift Aid, visit We’re unable to claim Gift Aid on collections, group donations or company donations.
