Giving is a part of our worship. We give back to God because he has first given so much to us!
Monthly giving is also vital to our mission as it enables us to plan impactful, long-term projects to reach more people with the love of Jesus. There are lots of ways to give financially into the life of SPS.

How to Give
To set up or amend a standing order, log in to your online banking or visit your local branch with our bank account details:
St Paul’s Shadwell
Account Number: 20664553
Sort Code: 40-11-58
Quote reference as: your first name and surname.
Once you have set up or amended your standing order, please email us so we can identify your gift and thank you.
You can give by cash, cheque, credit or debit card, or set up a new standing order at any Sunday service by using a giving envelope and adding it to the offering near the LIFE stand back of the church.
If you are a UK taxpayer, please consider filling in the Gift Aid declaration on the envelope to make your gift go even further. Any questions, just ask one of the welcome team.
Charitable Aid Agencies
You may wish to give to SPS via a charitable aid agency such as Stewardship, CAF, or Charitable Giving. These agencies are useful for those who give to multiple charities and wish to have their giving recorded in one place or for those who wish to give anonymously to SPS.
Some agencies such as CAF American Donor Fund also offer a more tax-efficient method of giving for US taxpayers.
Payroll Giving Via Employer
Many employers offer Payroll Giving which allows you to give directly to SPS from your salary before tax is deducted. This means if you give £100 per month and are a basic rate taxpayer, the gift will only cost you £80 from your net pay. If you pay a higher rate of tax, £100 a month will only cost you £60 from your net pay. To find out if your employer offers Payroll Giving, contact your HR office.
Employer Matched Giving
Many employers offer matched giving schemes. In most cases, the company will match your donation pound-for-pound up to a specific amount; a handful of organisations will even double your gift.
Contact the Human Resources or Social Responsibility Office at your workplace to find out if they operate a matched giving scheme.
Some employers may not match giving for religious purposes, though most will match gifts to our social transformation ministries such as the Night Shelter. If you require advice on how to use matched giving, or need help allocating your giving for match giving purposes, please contact the Office.
