Envelope Scheme

The envelope scheme is an efficient way of giving especially if you are a tax payer. You are given a numbered envelope for every Sunday of the year. This enables you to give every week even if you are away from Streetly Methodist Church on Sunday.

If you wish to join the Envelope Scheme or have any questions on Envelope Scheme or using the Green Envelopes then please contact Chris Newson email: covenant.secretary@streetlymethodistchurch.org.uk tel: 0121 353 5948.

Standing Order

Some people now give monthly or weekly by standing order direct from their bank account. This is a very efficient way to give to the church as there is less effort required to keep track of your giving to reclaim tax. You can download a standing order form here.

Gift Aid

If you are a taxpayer and make a Gift Aid Declaration the Church can reclaim the tax you have paid on your giving. This makes every 1.00 given worth 1.25 to the Church. Once a Declaration has been made all money given to the Church can be included in the Gift Aid scheme and the tax reclaimed.

You must pay enough tax to cover all your donations under GitAid. You are free to withdraw the Declaration any time if you cease to pay tax.

Addtional Giving

Donating Gifts other than money to the Church

Unfortunately the rules in the United Kingdom for Gift Aid mean the Church cannot reclaim tax of gifts other than money.

If you with the church to recalim the the tax then I'am afraid you will need to follow the following procedure:

  1. Purchase the gift eg flowers, milk & busicuits for refreshments after the service, etc and keep the receipt.
  2. Claim the cost from the tresurer using the claim form and enclose the recipt (for the auditor).
  3. Put the money in a green envelope and put it on the collection plate. Remember to put your name or envelope number on the outside of the green envelope.

To include any additional giving in the Gift Aid scheme there are green envelopes available in the Church which need to be filled in with your name or envelope number.

The Inland Revenue has a website with more details of the scheme and a copy of the leaflet IR65 Giving to Charity by Individuals can be downloaded. If you would like a printed copy please see Pat Hallam.

If you have any questions on the Envelope Scheme, Gift Aid, using the Green Envelopes or wish to make a Gift Aid Declaration then please contact Chris Newson email: covenant.secretary@streetlymethodistchurch.org.uk tel: 0121 353 5948.
