We believe that everything we have comes from God, and that giving is part of our response to Him. We want to do what He wants with all areas of our lives, including our money; it is the generosity of the congregation that enables us to pursue our vision of seeing God’s kingdom transform life in Exeter and beyond.
The work of St Matt's is funded almost entirely by the people of St Matt's. We receive only occasional funding from any outside source. Thank you to so many who give so generously. You are investing in people and enabling their lives to be transformed. Regular giving allows us to budget more effectively, and so is incredibly helpful.
There are many ways you can give to the life of St Matt's:
the Parish Giving Scheme
The best way to give regularly. The Parish Giving Scheme involves setting up a direct debit to replace any current cash or standing order donations. This has a number of benefits - it helps our financial administration, improves our cash flow, reduces our paperwork and enables us to receive any Gift Aid tax rebate more quickly.
Pick up a form at church or speak to Simon Wilding or Karen Cronin. More details can be found HERE.
Online Banking (Standing Order and One-off Gifts)
If you have access to online banking, you’re able to set up regular giving through Standing Order, or one-off gifts by BACS transfer. To arrange payments by online banking, our account details are:
