Your contribution to the life and work of the church makes a difference – thank you for all you give.


Below you’ll find ways to give financially to the life of our church.  

But first we’d encourage you to use the excellent Parish Giving Scheme.







To give in a convenient and planned way could not be easier.
All you have to do it pick up the phone for a friendly chat!
to join 80 households who give to Alverstoke Church through this scheme.

The advantages for you are:

  • Your giving is protected by the bank.
  • You have a very good phone helpline to discuss any changes to what you’d like to give or any queries.
  • You can opt out very easily.
  • You can choose to link giving to inflation (with your annual consent)
  • You can even choose to remain anonymous if you want!
  • There are PGS cards in church to pop in to the offertory plate when the plate is passed around at  services so your gift is still offered to God week by week.

The advantages for the parish are:

  • No parish volunteers are needed to claim Gift Aid from cash, cheques and Standing Orders which can take up to six months.
  • Any Gift Aid arrives in the parish accounts within a month.
  • No parish volunteers are required to count and bank donatons and cheques.
  • The potential uplift of annual inflation-based giving is huge.
  • Charges for banking cash and cheques are saved along with envelope charges.
  • There is no cost to the giver or to the parish for this service – it is too good to be true!
