Ways of donating to your parish

Your financial assistance is essential to our parish’s survival as well as to fulfill our mission of bringing people closer to Jesus Christ through his Church. Without your generous support, we will be unable able to continue the Lord’s work.

Online Banking

If you do online banking, the quickest and most direct way to donate is with a bank transfer. If you can, please also consider a monthly gift by Standing Order. Our account details are:

  • Account Name: CDP Gosport
  • Sort Code: 30-93-04
  • Account Number: 00878538
  • Reference: Surname and First Initial

Please add your surname and first name as a reference, to help our bookkeeper.

Gift Aid

If you are a taxpayer, please Gift Aid your donation. The government will top up your gift by 25 per cent, meaning a £20 offering becomes £25, at no cost to you.

The quickest and easiest way to do Gift Aid now is to send an email to with the following information:

  • Your parish name
  • Your title, first name and surname
  • Your address and postcode
  • The date of your gift, or start date of Standing Order
  • The amount
  • Please add the line: ‘Please Gift Aid my donations’

The Diocese Gift Aid office will add your declaration immediately, on behalf of your parish, and email you a confirmation.

Planned Giving

Standing Order

If you have a current account, this is the most effective way of giving. Less hassle and less paperwork. Please contact us for a standing order mandate or download it here. Complete and return to us and we will do the rest.

Wills and Legacies

What is a legacy?

Legacies to the church or charities are a means of leaving them a proportion of your assets after your death. Everyone should consider leaving a legacy – it’s not just for those we think are “rich”. Christians are called to give generously during their lifetime as a response to God’s love, but legacies are a means of expressing generosity at a level which many not have been possible earlier in life. For more information about legacies and wills, please contact the parish office, who will refer you to our diocesan representative on legacies and wills.

How do I make or amend my Will?

If you have already made a will, you will need to keep it up to date as you get older and a new will can be made at any time. More simply, you can add charitable legacies to your will by consulting your solicitor about a short codicil.

Thank you very much for your support. Everything that happens in our parish is only possible with your support.
