Giving to St Nicholas

We are very grateful to all those who donate financially to support St Nicholas Church. All donations are treated confidentially.

Occasional and one-off gifts

If you wish to make a One-Off Gift to the Parish, it would be ideal if you could make these payments electronically by BACS. Payments should be made to:

Account Name: PCC of St Nicholas Marston

Sort Code: 089299

Account Number: 65861213

Or scan this QR code:




If you don’t have access to online banking, and would still like to make a one off gift, then send a cheque payable to PCC of St Nicholas Marston to the Parish Office, or leave a cash gift in the wall safe by the main door of the church.

Regular Giving

The most efficient way of regular giving is via the Parish Giving Schemeadministered on our behalf by the diocese.

Why give?

The Church of England receives no funding from the state. Each congregation provides the money needed to support the church and the clergy. Churches with more income support those with less, through the Parish Share Scheme.

Our giving is a response to the generosity of God, who: “loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
Our giving is part of our discipleship and part of our worship.

Bequest to St Nicholas in your will

You might consider providing for a monetary bequest to the church in your will.  This could help with inheritance tax (IHT) on your estate because St Nicholas is a registered charity and your executor(s) can take off the gift before computing the IHT payable.  The treasurer can supply a suggested form of words.
