Frequently Asked Questions

Is it possible to donate on-line?
Yes, we use Churchsuite and the online payment platform Stripe to take online payments. By clicking the "Donate" button above you will be taken to their secure site where you can use a debit or credit card to make your donation. Receipt are issued automatically by email.

Is it possible to use Gift Aid?
Yes, it is. Gift Aid is a scheme whereby the government gives to the receiving charity 25% (regarded as the tax paid) of any and all donation amounts received from tax payers who are signed up in the scheme. This means, for example, that a donation of £10 would in effect become £12.50 once the Gift Aid is claimed. If you are a taxpayer and would like to make an ongoing gift aid declaration (or a declaration for previous donations) please click here to send an email request.

To whom should cheques be made payable, and where do I send them?
Cheques should be made payable to “Grace Communion International”, and sent to the following address:

Grace Communion International
PO Box 7703
Market Harborough
LE16 7ZG

What about Postal Orders?
Postal Orders should also be made payable to “Grace Communion International” and sent to the address above. Please note that Postal Order forms are available with a Gift Aid declaration on the reverse that charity supporters can sign to make their donations tax-efficient. If there are taxpayers who send in donations by using Postal Orders, it would be very beneficial to the Church if they also completed the Gift Aid Declaration on the reverse of the Postal Orders. It would not involve any cost to those sending the Postal Orders but would enable the Church to claim back tax.

Is it possible to donate using Internet Banking, Standing Orders and Bank Deposits?
Yes, it is. Please contact the Church service centre for our bank details and a reference to use when making payments. Email or phone +44 (0) 1858 437099

Is it possible to take out life insurance policies in favour of the Church?
Yes, it is. Our contact details are above.

How do I leave a legacy in favour of the church?
Should anyone wish to leave the church a legacy, the following information may be helpful. Please note that we encourage you to seek professional legal advice before making or changing a will. If you also tell us of your intentions that would be great but such a notification is, we know, is not binding.

Residuary legacy
This is when you leave to Grace Communion International all or some of what remains of your estate after all other bequests and expenses have been deducted. This type of gift ensures that those you care for are provided for, and has the additional benefit of keeping pace with inflation. Suggested wording:

I give all (or a __% share) of the residue of my estate, after payment of my debts, funeral expenses and inheritance tax liability, to Worldwide Church of God, also known as Grace Communion International, 9 the Point, Market Harborough, LE16 7QU (registered charity number 311098) for its general charitable purposes. I direct that the receipt of the Finance Officer or duly authorised officer shall be a good discharge to my executors.

Pecuniary legacy
This is when you leave a gift of a specified amount of money to Grace Communion International, for instance £5,000. This type of gift may be devalued by inflation. Suggested wording:

I give to the Worldwide Church of God, also known as Grace Communion International, 9 the Point, Market Harborough, LE16 7QU (registered charity number 311098) the sum of [amount in figures and words] for its general charitable purposes, and I direct that the receipt of the Finance Officer or duly authorised officer shall be a good discharge to my executors.

Specific legacy
This is when you leave a gift of a specific item of property to Grace Communion International. This item must be clearly identified within your will and your solicitor will be able to advise you on the appropriate wording. Suggested wording:

I give to the Worldwide Church of God, also known as Grace Communion International, 9 the Point, Market Harborough, LE16 7QU (registered charity number 311098) [description of property] for its general charitable purposes, and I direct that the receipt of the Finance Officer or duly authorised officer shall be a good discharge to my executors.

What is Gift Aid through Self Assessment Tax Return?
The Inland Revenue have begun a scheme that allows any individual who completes a Self-Assessment Tax Return to nominate the Church (or a charity) to receive all or part of any tax repayments due to them as a donation. This does not replace the existing Gift Aid scheme but is in addition to it. We have been given a specific code that refers to our charity. The Church’s unique code is TAA98WG and is listed on the Inland Revenue website. The advantages of this scheme are that the donation will be paid direct to the Church’s bank account, the form will incorporate a Gift Aid declaration, Gift Aid tax will be paid without the charity having to make a claim, and the Church will benefit from Gift Aid on any anonymous donations, should anyone select our charity from the Inland Revenue website.
