Supporting St Columba’s

The work of the Church benefits the congregation, the wider community and charitable organisations (locally and further afield).

Every organisation and household will be affected by the current economic and social disruption. Although we are unable to meet for worship, nor allow groups to hire and meet in our facilities, we have to maintain the building and meet significant ongoing financial commitments for the wider Church of Scotland.

Your contribution is a personal matter:

  • Ask yourself how you can help to develop the Church and its ministry.
  • Review your contributions regularly.

You can amend your level of giving at any time, according to your personal circumstances. Our annual Stewardship Campaign in autumn acts as a gentle reminder to take action.

There are lots of ways to give. Please note that our preference from a financial point of view is regular giving via standing order, accompanied by a valid Gift Aid form, if possible.

This is the most cost effective for us and generates a relatively stable base to support the work of the church.

This has Inheritance Tax (IHT) benefits - not only is your gift exempt, but, since April 2012, if you give >10% of your estate to one or more charitable causes, the inheritance tax rate is reduced by 10% (from 40% to 36%) on the remaining estate.
