Welcome to the All Saints Giving page
All Saints has never needed its members to contribute their monetary gifts, their time and their talents more than it does now. Join this community of people who are doing what they can and giving what they can to the Lord.
Below you will find news, background material, and a form to make your pledge. But as a more efficient method of making your pledge, follow this link: Make my pledge.
There is lots of useful information below, including a short summary of All Saints’ finances (item b) and a handy guide on how to save money if you are a higher-rate tax-payer (item a).

How our giving-envelopes are distinguished.
White envelopes are for those who wish to donate their regular pledged amount, placing it in the collection plate during a service. The envelopes do not display any personal details or require any details to be filled in week-on-week but are given a number for gift aid purposes where appropriate. White envelopes are available on request.
Yellow envelopes can be used by givers who already donate regularly to the church by another method (eg standing order), so they can make an ad hoc donation during or after a service (such as a retiring collection). Like white envelopes no personal details are displayed on the envelope and no details need to be filled in but the envelopes are numbered for gift aid purposes. These are also available on request.
Blue (used to be green) can be used by anyone to make an ad hoc donation to allow us to claim gift aid. They require the date and the giver’s name and address to be filled in for gift aid purposes. These are found in the pew holders.
Theme focus on Giving
Christ is God’s gift to us; and all that we have in our lives comes from God as free gift. The Christian life therefore is a life of giving, as God gives. Stewardship helps us explore this and challenges us to look again at what and how we give to Christ of ourselves and of the resources at our disposal.
Here are some sermons on giving and Christian use of money.
