Special Offering

Special Offering

Every year we have an opportunity to give over and above our regular tithes and offerings into our annual special offering.

There is still opportunity for you to give into the 2021 Together on Purpose special offering.

We have many great ministries and projects that we want to invest in from this offering   

This offering is an opportunity for many of us to consider either a one-off gift or starting to give regularly above our tithes – this could be either a regular gift into the Special Offering or, for those in the Peterborough Campus, into the Peterborough building fund to help towards the mortgage.

As we give together, we’re able to help more people and see real change.

faq

How much should I give into the ‘Together on Purpose’ Special Offering?

Each of us should give what we believe the Lord is asking us to give. It will involve sacrifice, but we want everyone to give freely and cheerfully. All contributions are valuable however large or small.

Can I change my monthly commitment?

Yes, if for any reason you wish to alter your pledge (e.g. your financial situation changes) you can either increase or decrease your commitment. If you have set up a standing order, you will need to change it via online banking or contact your bank.

How do I know whether to complete a Gift Aid declaration?

If you are a UK tax payer and would like us to claim the tax back on your donations, please complete an online gift aid declaration. This will not increase your tax payments. Please do not complete a gift aid declaration if you are not a tax payer or if the tax you pay is below the amount to be reclaimed.

What do I need to do if I complete a Gift Aid declaration and my circumstances change?

Please notify us if you:

  • Change your name or address while the declaration is still in force
  • Want to cancel the declaration. It will then not apply to donations you make on or after the date of cancellation, or such later date as you specify
  • No longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains

What happens if I am a higher rate tax payer?

If you pay income tax at the higher or additional rate and you want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.

Do I need to cancel the standing order I set up during the 2019 Special Offering?

No, if you would like to continue to give the same amount, then please fill out the monthly commitment section on the giving guide to let us know. Your standing order will remain in place.

What if I was not able to attend the service on Sunday 26 September?

You are still able to give into this offering, please see the ‘How to Give’ section above.

Can I give by cash or cheque?

Yes you can. Please make cheques payable to “KingsGate Community Church”, making sure your cheque (or cash) is securely enclosed within an envelope.

Where do I post my completed giving guide?

If you've downloaded a giving guide to print, or have taken one home, please post your completed guide to our Peterborough building:
