St Peter’s Church, Cogenhoe
Supporting your Church
St Peter’s has been part of the village community for over 700 years. The Church has helped celebrate births and marriages and commemorated loved ones who are sadly no longer with us. Although our church building is closed we are still providing online services and pastoral care.
We can only continue our ministry if we are in turn supported. We usually raise money from our annual fete, open gardens and other events which we have had to cancel. The Church of England has produced a short video, please take a minute to watch it here
If you feel able to support your village church please read on.
Regular Donations via the Parish Giving Scheme
The easiest way to make regular donations is via the Parish Giving Scheme (PGS). You can choose any amount and give monthly, quarterly or annually. If you are a UK taxpayer and agree to Gift-Aid your donation then the church will receive an extra 25% courtesy of the tax man.
The PGS does not charge us for administering the scheme so the church receives the whole amount you give. PGS is a Direct-Debit system so donors are protected by the Direct Debit Guarantee given by all banks and building societies. You can find out more about the PGS on their website here.
You can sign up to the PGS by telephone on 0333 002 1271. Each church has been given a unique PGS Parish Code to make sure donations are sent to the correct church. Please quote our code number 280628179 when giving your instructions. If you would rather sign up by post, we have printed PGS forms. Please ask our treasurer (phone 890120 or email email@example.com)
Please note that the Peterborough Diocesan standing order based giving scheme will probably be discontinued at the end of 2020. If you are already giving via Peterborough please remember to move to PGS before then.
You can donate online or if you prefer more traditional methods such a cash or cheque (made payable to St Peter’s Church Cogenhoe) please drop your donation in to the Rectory or to our Treasurer at 114 Station Road.
