National Giving Day

 

Help us to Love Linlithgow better! Join us this Sunday in the Church of Scotland's National Giving Day, as we reflect on God's presence with us through these challenging times and look forward with hope for all that he has in store for us. All additional donations this week will go 100% to support St Michael's ministry and work in the community.
There are 3 ways you can support the National Giving Day at St Michael's:

-use the 'Make a Donation' button at the bottom of this page, specifying that your donation is for the National Giving Day
-make a one-off bank transfer to St Michael's Parish Church account number 00631546, sort code 83-24-25 (NB this is a different account from the one used for regular giving)
-donate by cash or cheque at our service in church on Sunday morning - special envelopes will be available at the service for this purpose.

This gift day forms a prelude to our major 2030 Vision fundraising campaign, which will launch in November. However you choose to donate this week, thank you for your support!

General Notices

Giving to St Michael’s

You might be wondering how you can support financially the work of St Michael’s and the wider Church of Scotland.  

Those members who currently give through the Free Will Offering Scheme and who cannot hand in their envelopes might wish to consider one of the following options:

·         You could set up a monthly standing order for regular giving – please contact either Tim Brown on finance@stmichaels-parish.org.uk or Andrew Jones on giving@stmichaels-parish.org.uk and either Tim or Andrew will be able to send you a standing order form and advise on Gift Aid

·         You could make a one-off payment using the Stewardship button below

                                                                                                    

·         You could continue to set aside your weekly gifts and contact your Elder who would be happy to help you.

Gift Aid 

Did you know that the church can claim 25p for every £ given if the donor is a UK taxpayer and signs a Gift Aid declaration? This is true whether payments are made by regular standing order, via freewill envelopes, or by other identifiable means. For more information, or to set up/amend an existing arrangement please contact the Gift Aid Convener in confidence - Andrew Jones – at giving@stmichaels-parish.org.uk or on 01506 840914.

The Church of Scotland is hosting a screening of this new film online on the evening of 28 September, in advance of its release in cinemas.  There is a subsidised charge of £5 per download.  For further details or to book a viewing visit
