St Saviour's church still invites occasional donations by cash, or cheque (made out to 'The PCC of St Saviour's Church, Hampstead').
For occasional electronic payment, just contact us for the bank details.
However, for the continuing presence of our beautiful church to be secured in South Hampstead, regular giving is essential from its members, and from any who care to see its flourishing. To enable this we have joined THE PARISH GIVING SCHEME of the Church of England.
It is now possible to set up a direct debit online by following this link:
The details below are quoted from the PGS online link: https://www.parishgivingscheme.org.uk/for-donors/
"Donations can be made on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis by Direct Debit using a PGS gift form. Even though the donations are made to the PGS, donations are restricted to the parish chosen by the donor and cannot be used elsewhere.
The donation will be passed back to the parish of the donor's choosing by 10th of the month. Gift Aid will be sent separately once PGS has received it from HMRC.
The unique feature of the scheme is the option for the donor to commit in principle to increase their gift annually in line with inflation. Whilst this is a voluntary decision, it is one that could potentially have a huge impact on the life and future of the church.
Launch of new telephone service - to enable prospective donors to set up a regular Direct Debit gift over the phone.
Please call our dedicated telephone number: 0333 002 1271
Lines are open Monday to Friday, between 9 – 5pm. You will need to have your bank account details, church/parish name and PGS parish code to hand (available from the PGS representative for your parish).

How it Works
If you wish to donate to your parish through the scheme please contact your parish representative who will supply you with a Gift Form for completion. Please ensure that you enter the PGS Parish code on the form, as this is a unique code that will enable your donation to be passed onto your chosen church.
Complete the form including your bank details and send it to the Parish Giving Scheme at the above address - the Direct debit details should NOT be sent to the bank as they are unable to process them.
This information is treated as confidential. If you decide to remain anonymous only the amount of the gift will be shared with your Representative. We wish to encourage you to remain known to your parish so that they may thank you and avoid mistakenly approaching you in the future to consider a regular gift to your church.
Once your Gift form has been received by the PGS and processed you will receive a confirmation letter within 10 working days stating your personal details, the level and frequency of your gift, the parish you wish to restrict it to and the start date of your donation.
Unfortunately the PGS is unable to cancel a standing order for you, only you may do this. If you bank online it is very simple to do through your online account, otherwise you will need to contact your bank direct.
By opting in to increase your donation in line with inflation on an annual basis you will be helping your Parish to budget for the future. Retail Prices Index (RPI) will be used as in independent and well-known measure of inflation. You will be written to 30 days in advance of any increase with the revised amount. If you are unable to meet it simply let us know.
Change of Circumstances
Please notify the PGS immediately if you change your name, contact details, bank account details or no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains to qualify for Gift Aid, or you are now eligible to claim Gift Aid.
If you become eligible to claim Gift Aid and have not signed the gift aid declaration on the gift form, please complete a Gift Aid declaration and email or post it to us."
