Your Donations to the Cathedral
New Card reader for the Cathedral
During this time of the Covid-19 pandemic, a number of parishioners have enquired about making online donations to support the continued running of the Cathedral parish.
Because of the inability of parishioners to have access to the Cathedral, and thus make their normal generous weekly donations, the Cathedral is currently losing approximately £2000 per week. This weekly deficit will clearly put a strain on the Cathedral finances, without which we cannot properly support our priests and run the Cathedral.
In these distressing times our clergy are more than aware of the many stresses and strains, both personal and financial, being suffered by parishioners; but if you feel able and are willing to go on making at least some contribution, however small, we would be immensely grateful.
Contributions can now be made via a page on the Brentwood Diocesan website normally using the general offertory option. For those interested more please click here: Details
If you can use Gift Aid then the value of your generosity is increased by 25% at no cost to you, and Gift Aided contributions form a substantial part of the Cathedral finances.
Details of the Gift Aid scheme
You can, if you prefer, make a payment directly into the Cathedral Bank Account using online banking. You will need to set up the Cathedral as a payee on your own online banking app or internet page. The Cathedral Bank details are as follows:
HSBC PLC, High Street, Brentwood, Essex
If you use this method please put your Surname and Initial as a reference. If you are part of our Gift Aid scheme, then please also add your Gift Aid number. So a typical reference might be
‘A Surname GA=999’
By entering this reference our Gift Aid Organiser will be able to make sure that your generosity is increased in line with the Gift Aid regulations.
Alternatively you may write a cheque payable to The Cathedral Brentwood with your Cathedral Gift Aid number (if you have one) on the reverse. The cheque can then be posted to Clergy House if you wish. Cathedral Contact Details
