Supporting your church
Giving through the Parish Giving Scheme
Why give through the Parish Giving Scheme? The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) is simply the best way you can support St Luke’s church and Cronton Mission. The PGS is an Anglican charity. Most Liverpool parishes have joined and over half of English dioceses support it. Joining the PGS makes a huge difference compared with weekly envelopes or cash on the plate because we can collect your gift now. It is more efficient than standing orders.

Your gift is always in your full control (by email or phone) with PGS. The Scheme is for every church member with a bank account. You do not need to pay tax.
Your gift leaves your account by Direct Debit on the 1st of each month. It is in the church account by the 11th and any Gift Aid reclaims by the end of the month. The PGS saves time and administration and helps with cash flow. Even though we can’t worship in church your gift will support our ministry and PGS helps us make generous giving part of our daily life and discipleship.
How do I join?
You can give to your church by making a ten-minute phone call:
What happens next?
You will receive confirmation by email or post of your Direct Debit, the amount and date of your first PGS gift. If you already give by standing order, remember to cancel it once PGS have confirmed with you.
