Gift aid and standing orders

Please consider joining the gift aid scheme and also setting up a standing order in favour of Christ the King. If you are a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid is a wonderful way to make your offertory donation more valuable to Christ the King. Standing order forms make it even easier to make a regular contribution to the parish.

- 5. Alpha Course or equivalent.
- 6. Ongoing Prayer Groups.
- 7. Pilgrimage to Walsingham or a Retreat.
- 8. Occasional ‘Night Fever’ – inviting passers-by to pop in.
- 9. Social media is the modern way of advertising. Responsibility of all…
