Ways to Support Silsoe Church

You can help support our Church by giving of your:

TIME       TALENT      TREASURE

Time

We have a very small rota of people who keep the Church clean and the brasses polished. If you can spare just an hour a week to help with the cleaning we would be very grateful – please contact Martyn Gates on 01525 861553 or martyngates.a@gmail.com

As part of our mission of “welcome” we offer refreshments after every service. Again, this depends on a small rota of people and if you could help with refreshments please contact Paul Biscoe on 01525 861894 or paulbiscoe@hotmail.com

Thank you

Talent

Rachel Barnes and the Messy Church Team like to offer children and their families cakes during Messy Church. If you are a baker, maybe you could bake a cake for the next Messy Church. Please contact Rachel at r.m.jenkins.02@cantab.net if you can help.

Treasure

If you put money into the Plate at a service, please consider using a Gift Aid envelope if you are able to complete a Gift Aid Declaration as this will enable our Treasurer to claim a further 25% of the your donation from the Government. One-off Gift Aid envelopes are available in each pew, but please consider completing a Gift Aid Declaration form, which will cover all future gifts from you. We can also supply you with a box of envelopes which use a Gift Aid ID number to save you having to complete the Gift Aid declaration each time you use an envelope – you just write your ID number on.  We are happy to provide you with a box of envelopes, even if you do not come to Church every week.

If you wish to make regular donations to the Church, please complete a standing order form or set up a standing order via online banking. Details of the PCC’s bank account can be found on the standing order form.

Smartie Fund Raising

PHOTO - Smartie Tube

Do you like Smarties?  Help us raise funds by eating them and then filling the empty tube with 20p coins. A full Smartie tube can contain between £12 and £13 in 20p pieces – and if you donate the full tube along with Gift Aid declaration, it could be worth up to £16.25 to the Church.  Free tubes available from the Church – just ask a PCC member.

Annual Report & Financial Statements

Each year the PCC publish a Report and Financial Statements with a review of the Church’s activity through the year and details of the income and expenditure.  To see a copy of the latest Report and Financial Statements, please follow this link.
