Giving by Standing Order.
Setting up a standing order really helps the church by cutting down on the amount of cash that has to be counted and banked each week.
Most people favour a monthly standing order and it is easy to instruct your bank to set one up by giving them the following information:
The Payee is: St Columba's
The church's banker is: HSBC
Sort code: 40-25-34
Reference: Your Name(s)
If you decide to pay by standing order there is no need to place anything into he Sunday collection plate. However, many people want to have their gift included when prayers are said to thank God for the gifts received and presented, so free will envelopes can still be supplied to you to place in the collection plate.There is no need to enclose any further funds in the envelope unless you want to make further donations.
