Our giving to charity

As a church we have regular events and appeals throughout the year to support a range of charitable causes.

In addition, from our 2016 accounts we gave away just under 7% (previously 5%) of our annual income sourced from

  • committed giving from our congregation
  • the tax refund on that giving
  • cash collections.

In total, our annual giving to charity will usually exceed £10,000. Our PCC decides on both the events and appeals, and also the causes supported through our "7% (5%)".  Most charities are connected to St Paul's in some way.

Our total giving each year is recorded in our annual accounts and the following pages show the acknowledgements we have received through the year.
