Supporting St Laurence Church
We are very grateful to all the people who support us in so many ways: financially, with their time and energy, and through their prayers. This all helps us to maintain our services, building and ministry to the wider community. Below are a few examples of how you can help.
You can support St Laurence Church financially by:
1. Giving regularly
Members of the congregation and others are encouraged to give on a regular basis either by standing order or through a weekly envelope scheme. Please see our Financial Commitments page for further details about planned giving.
2. Making a donation for the maintenance of the building
The Parochial Church Council (PCC) would welcome donations from anyone who wants to contribute to the upkeep of this large Grade 1 listed building, which is beyond the resources of those who worship in the building. Donations to this fund, which must only be used for the maintenance of the building, can be made to St Laurence Downton PCC and should be given to the Treasurer at 142 The Borough. If you are able to Gift Aid the donation, please complete the Charity Gift Aid Donation Form and send this to the Treasurer.
3. Joining Easyfundraising
If you shop online, you can join in the Easyfundraising scheme. Through this, for any online purchases you make from a wide range of retailers, the retailers provide a donation to St Laurence. Visit St Laurence’s Easyfundraising webpage to sign up for free and support the church.
