Sunday services are now online, so giving to church is changing too. The Giving page on the church website lists a number of easy ways to give. By far the best way to give is by online payments or standing order, but if you normally prefer to give by cheque and cash, you may like this option…
Now you can save time and keep things simple by giving by text from your phone.
If you pay monthly for your mobile phone and calls, the donation is then added to your next mobile phone bill by your mobile phone company.
If you are on pay-as-you-go, the donation is taken from credit you have already added to your mobile phone account.
When you give by text, you will also be asked if you want the church to collect the Gift Aid on your gift.
If you normally give cash in Sunday morning offerings, why not try giving by text instead?
How to give by text
Let’s say you want to send £3 to church.
Text 360LIFE 3 to 70460 to donate £3.
Texts cost £3 plus one standard rate message and you’ll be opting in to hear more about our ministry and fundraising via telephone and SMS.
If you’d like to give £3 but do not wish to receive marketing communications, text 360LIFENOINFO 3 to 70460.
To give a different amount, specify the amount you want in in place of the “3” in the above examples.
For instance, to give £20, text 360LIFE 20 to 70460.
Now, let’s say you want to give £5 every month.
Text M360LIFE 5 to 70490 to donate £5 a month.
