Your support matters
Make a Donation
Your giving enables everything that we do at StC, including our four Sunday Services, our work with children and young people, Connect Groups & Alpha, community projects like the Food with Friends Community Meal & Baby Basics, our work with the elderly and the bereaved and much more.
Everything that happens at StC is made possible because of those who pray, serve and give to the work of the Church. We couldn’t do it without you: thank you so much!
Ways to Give
Give regularly by Standing Order
Monthly giving is vital to our mission as it enables us to plan impactful, long-term projects to reach more people with the love of Jesus.
To set up or amend a standing order, log in to your online banking or visit your local branch with StC’s bank account details:
St Catherine’s Church, Gorseinon
Sort Code: 40-52-40
Account Number: 00016714
Quote reference as: your first name and surname.
Once you have set up or amended your standing order, please email us so we can identify your gift and thank you.
Giving to StC via Direct Debit using the Church in Wales Gift Direct Scheme is easy. Simply pick up a form at one of our Sunday services (download it, or give us a call and we’ll send you a copy in the post), fill it in and return it directly to the Church in Wales, or to a member of our staff team.
The Church in Wales will send us your donation in full each month and, if you are a tax payer, they will even claim the Gift Aid for us too.
Give at a Sunday Service
You can give by cash, cheque, credit or debit card, or set up a new standing order at any Sunday service by using a giving envelope and adding it to the offering.
If you are a UK taxpayer, please consider filling in the Gift Aid declaration on the envelope to make your gift go even further.

Employer Matched Giving
Many employers offer matched giving schemes. In most cases, the company will match your donation pound-for-pound up to a specific amount; a handful of organisations will even double your gift. You can download a list here of companies that we understand currently match gifts donated by their employees. This list is not definitive, and many more companies may also offer this option.
If your employer is not listed, please contact the Human Resources or Social Responsibility Office at your workplace to find out if they operate a matched giving scheme.
Some employers may not match giving for religious purposes, though most will match gifts to special projects like Food with Friends, our Holiday Hunger or Vision projects.

Send a Cheque
To give via cheque, please make the cheque out to ‘St Catherine's Church, Gorseinon’ and either give it via an envelope at a Sunday service or post it to the address below.
If you pay Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax in the UK, we can claim back 25p on every £1 you donate through the Gift Aid scheme. To permit us to do this, please complete the Gift Aid Declaration at the bottom of this page.
If you pay tax above the basic rate, you can personally claim the difference between the rate you pay and basic rate on your donation (25%). You can do this either through your self-assessment tax return, or by asking HMRC to amend your tax code.
Leave a Legacy
If you are considering making a bequest to StC or have already included a gift to StC in your will and would like to speak to someone about legacy giving, please get in touch.
Gift Aid Declaration
For UK taxpayers, we are able to reclaim 25p for every £1 given, at no extra cost to you. To allow us to claim Gift Aid on your behalf, please complete the declaration below.
Please claim Gift Aid on my donations to St Catherine’s Church, Gorseinon (Charity Number 11334662).
This includes all donations for this year and the previous four years, plus any future donations, unless I notify you otherwise.
