The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) is a Direct Debit system produced specifically for parish churches.
PGS is a highly efficient system for helping local churches with their planned giving. You can sign up to the PGS using one of three methods, online, by phone, or by postal gift form. It automatically adds the Gift Aid uplift if appropriate, and then remits the gross amount to the local church. Uniquely, it can automatically increase the donation by inflation each year, if the donor agrees – combating static giving in our churches.
If this scheme becomes the principal funding method for your Church, you will have inflation-proofed your giving, maximized your cash-flow and minimised your administration. This will free up your parish to focus on other important priorities.

“Just do it! It’s quick, convenient, efficient, saves a huge amount of work for the people who count and account for the money given, and helps the church to budget efficiently and be better stewards of money and time”The Revd. John Wigmore, Rector Winklebury & Worting
