You can give to the mission of the parish by offering cash on the collection plates on the way out after Mass but, especially during the current pandemic, you can also:
- Post a cheque to Fr Paul at St Mary’s Presbytery, Wharf Lane, Brewood, ST19 9BG; cheques made payable to ‘St Mary, Brewood’. If you normally give by the envelope scheme could you also enclose the number of your envelope.
- Pay by BACS payment.
- Set up a Standing Order (even if you have a Gift Aid envelope)
- Give Online via the Diocesan website.
To pay by BACS, please email us at: email@example.com with your telephone number so that Teresa or Fr Paul can ring you to give you our bank account details (sort code, account number and account name). The reference would be ‘Donation St Mary Brewood’. If you are already registered for gift aid and are giving by BACS; can you please also let us know the date and amount of money you have given and your envelope number (if you normally give this way) so we can update the records. You can do this by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Although BACS is the most convenient way for most people to give to the parish; in the long term, it would really help the parish if you could set up a standing order for future giving. You could set up an order for a reasonable amount each month which you could then add to if you want. The parish would then have some idea of its regular income.
If you do internet banking, you can just set a standing order up this way up; having received the parish’s bank account details from us and preferable letting us know by email the amount and frequency you are intending to give and your envelope number (if you normally give this way).
If you don’t have internet banking:
- Download the Standing Order form below and print it.
- Fill in your bank account details and how much you wish to give etc. and sign it.
- Contact the parish for the parish bank account details and add them in and post the form to your bank. Please ensure you get the correct title of the parish account.
- Please also let us know by email the amount and frequency you are intending to give and your envelope number (if you normally give this way).
If you are a tax payer, paying sufficient tax, please consider making a Gift Aid Declaration which would mean that the parish could receive some of your tax back. To do this, please complete the Gift Aid part of the Standing Order form as well, ensuring that it is dated on or before the date of your first payment. Can you then return the completed form to the parish; either by post to St Mary’s Presbytery, Wharf Lane, Brewood, ST19 9BG; or as a scanned document emailed to email@example.com

You can also donate online by going to the Diocese website: https://www.birminghamdiocese.org.uk/support-our-work following instructions; selecting ‘Brewood’ when a box prompts you with: ‘Donating to’. The only down side of this online option is that there is a transaction charge on a sliding scale; equating to 39p for a £10 donation. If you are already registered for gift aid and are giving via the Diocese online; can you please let us know the date and amount of money you have given and your envelope number (if you normally give this way) so we can update the records. You can do this by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your continued support and generosity at this difficult time.
