Stewardship and Giving

How can I give to life of the church in Stanwix and Belah?

In response to the many gifts that God has given us we are called to offer something of ourselves in return. Church members contribute to the life and work of the church in many different ways. This may be financially and it may be in terms of our gifts, time or talents. If you feel that you are being called by God to offer your services within the life of the church then please speak to someone in leadership in the church.

If you wish to give financially to the work of the parish there are a number of ways of doing this. Please contact the Parish Office
for more information:

  • Placing money in the offering box as you come into church on a Sunday
  • The weekly envelope scheme*
  • Standing Order*
  • Sending a cheque, made payable to Stanwix Parish, to the church office*
  • Placing money in the offering box as you come into church on a Sunday
  • Making the church a benefactor in your will (see legacies page).

By choosing one of the options marked with a star above then you can significantly increase your gift through the Gift Aid scheme.

It is now also possible to give both one-off and regular donations via this website.

St Michael's

St Mark's

This is a secure transaction and will be managed through the Carlisle Diocesan financial team and then by the Parish Church.  The company who have provided the My Giving route is Data Developments who have been approved and endorsed by Carlisle Diocese and The Church of England.

There is a small transaction fee (1.9% + 20p for each transaction) that you can choose to cover as an additional gift by ticking the box, otherwise this fee will be deducted from the amount given. This fee supports the My Giving finance administration. There is also the usual Gift Aid box to tick if appropriate.

You will be taken through a series of online forms, as shown below, asking you for your contact details, followed by the payment details.

You can back out at any time by clicking the X in the top right corner.
