The easiest way to contribute financially to the Chaplaincy and each of the churches is through collections at services. We have estimated that the average donation required from each of the people who attend our services is 7€ per person per week (2017). Whilst many people are happy to give this amount, and many give substantially more, it is also the case that many of our congregations do not attend church every week and many travel back to the UK regularly or for visits so do not give at all on those weeks. Unfortunately the cost of running our Chaplaincy remains the same. In order to make it easy for people to carry on giving even when they may be away or back in the UK we are able to offer the opportunity for people to pay by Standing Order, directly from their bank. Why contribute by standing order? There are three main benefits of giving regularly by standing order.
- It gives you, the contributor, the means to make decisions about your giving on a regular, prayerful and logical basis.
- It is done automatically so there is no need to make sure that you have the right amount of cash when you go to church each week.
- The Chaplaincy benefits in that, when the annual budgeting has to be done, the Chaplaincy knows that it can depend on this part of its income.
