Gift Direct


Please Support Your Church!

Hello All... OK... It's time to lay our cards on the table. We need your help.  You know about CoronaVirus and how it's affecting lives wherever you are. Since March 24th 2020, our churches have been forced to close. Back in July / August 2020, we started to slowly re-open our church doors for private prayer and limited services. Sadly, we faced yet another lockdown, a lockdown which means that our churches are once more closed until such time as we are given clearance to open to the public.  Though our church doors are closed, it doesn't mean that church life has also closed. No, far from it! We haven't given up or disappeared. We are still trying to make a difference to our communities with online services, the support of this website and more besides. We're doing everything we can.

Recently... Due to government funding, our main churches have received some help to get through the darkness, however... That doesn't mean that we are financially safe. As churches, we still have to pay various costs per month for utilities, upkeep and other costs including contributions to support other churches in our communities. We, as churches fear the one thing we don't want to face... CLOSURE!  In order to keep our churches going, we hold events, fundraisers, our services and much more, that is, in a normal setting.  Sadly, this isn't a normal setting BUT WE WILL NOT AND SHALL NOT LET CORONAVIRUS BEAT US DOWN!

Our churches still cost to run, various bills, the support we need to offer. As we can't hold services in the normal way, we can't generate financial support through cash donations, whether it's lighting cndles, the offertory box, etc, we are in all truth, struggling. As churches, we also support churches with dwindling congregations, meaning we support clergy, buildings and other costs.

During the 2nd half of 2020, we launched through Church In Wales, GIFT Direct, as such, an online resource for anyone to visit and donate where they wish. This is our means of support at present. For us all, it's a worrying time, a time where we could one day see our local churches closed completely and sold through auctions. This is not something we want, as this would heavily impact on our communities. We cannot let this happen, we must not let this happen.

If you can help in any way, we would greatly appreciate anything you can give. This is a disturbing time for our churches and we have to hold on and be strong, we have to continue to support our communities and minister to our congregations. With your support, our churches and our staff would be safe, we could continue to support our communities and continue our ministry. Though we pray for help and hope that we may have our prayers answered,  WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Gift Direct is the way that the Church in Wales manages Gift Aid donations. Gift Aid is a UK tax incentive that enables tax-effective giving by individuals to charities in the United Kingdom.

With Gift Direct:

You, the giver, are always in control,
Managing donations is easier for you and your church,
There are no last-minute scrambles for spare change or a cheque book,
