GIVING

Quick and easy donation

To make a donation to Christ Church using a credit or debit card, the link below will take you to the Give A Little payment platform. For many people this will be the most convenient method of making one-off donations.

WHY DONATE?

Christ Church is funded almost entirely by voluntary donations, especially regular personal donations made by members of the congregation and supplemented by Gift Aid. The majority of our members donate by standing order.

A large proportion of our expenditure is on people who help to deliver our services and activities in the parish (staff salaries and expenses).

We also make a substantial contribution to Church of England Birmingham which collectively funds clergy salaries and supports ministry in every community across the City.

A proportion of our income – roughly 10% of donations to the General Fund – is given in support of individuals and partner organisations around the world.

If you are visiting us, whether online or in person, there is no obligation to give but giving financially is one way to respond to God’s generosity.

It’s not just about money… Our members and friends contribute a lot of time, effort and expertise to the running of Christ Church and hardly any of our numerous activities could take place otherwise. These go hand in hand with our finances to make Christ Church the place it is.

However you support us – thank you!

OTHER WAYS TO GIVE

For regular giving, our preferred method is standing orderalready used by many of our congregation. It’s convenient, incurs no charges and assures us of a regular income.

Transferring funds by Internet banking is also favourable because it incurs no charges.
