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.
