Over these last few weeks I’ve been working on the
Faculty application for the Lighting Project; it won’t surprise you to hear
that there are pages and pages of questions on all aspects of the church’s
life: historical, social, community outreach, mission etc and it’s made me
aware of the role that All Saints Church Kesgrave has played down the centuries
and the role we still play as one of the 450 parishes in the Diocese and as
part of the wider mosaic that makes up the Church of England.
There is such a huge amount of background work that
goes into keeping any church going: the Diocese, for instance, has a bank of
experts (most of them voluntary) that advise on archaeology, finance,
safeguarding, legal issues etc and this is why we pay towards the Parish Share
as well as towards everything that enables our own particular church to
Thank you to each and everyone for your support.
All methods of Giving remain available, but the Church website has been updated with two Donate Buttons: a Green Button for General Giving and a Blue Button for supporting the Lighting Project. Please see below for all other methods of giving particularly the improved PGS system which allows you to set up a DD online.

PARISH GIVING SCHEME UPDATE The
Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) website has come on by leaps and bounds and it is
now possible to log onto:
and set up an online Direct Debit donation
straightaway. (If you are wanting to
donate as a couple then it may be easier if just one person signs up, as the
Gift Aid option, for example, can only apply to individuals.
The other sign-up options are still available:
telephone applications and paper forms (from me). The original packs that I was sent will not
be valid after March 2021 but I can print off ASK-specific forms for anyone who
would like them.
The information needed is the name of the church,
the Parish Code 330633093and
the Diocese (St Eds and Ips)
If you have any queries at all please contact me or
log onto their website; the PGS offers both Gift Aid and “Inflation-proofed”
options (and both are entirely optional!)
If you buy goods or services online, please look into signing up for
. They make a real difference to us, as each time you buy something online the company you buy from donates to us, without costing you anything! The amount that companies donate to us varies widely from
0.5% of your spend to as high as 10% on special days so it really is worth doing!
works at most online stores, utilities, and services (e.g. Hughes, booking.com, BT, Sky, ...), and is very easy to use as once registered you simply shop as normal. When using Amazon, it's best to
instead of amazon.co.uk (it works the same way as Amazon). For both services, when prompted to select your charity, choose "
Kesgrave Church of England Charity
" to support our youth work, or
"Kesgrave Parish Church Trust
" to support our general work. Please sign up for both services if you are able. With thanks in anticipation!
GIVE AS YOU LIVE FOR FREE! For
anyone that performs web-searchers or shops online from Amazon, eBay, John Lewis, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and many
other subscribing retailers, there’s a new way you can give more to All Saints Church without it costing you a penny! Simply register with http://www.giveasyoulive.com/howitworks and perform your web searches or shop
via their page.
1%-1.5% of the value of purchases
then come to All Saints, and every few web searches raise 1p (it soon adds up!). This works on
computers or smart-phones.
When choosing your Charity, we suggest you choose our “Kesgrave Church of England
Charity”, which means that funds
can be used for regular costs such as youth worker and parish administrator. If you choose instead the “Parish Trust” the money instead goes into a permanent endowment where only the interest can be used by All Saints.
If you use the web please give this a try- it’s so easy and every little makes a difference! Many thanks for
