We fundraise both to raise money for running the parish and for other good causes.

Regular donations

If you’re a member of our community, and want to give money regularly to support our work, we encourage you to give through the Parish Giving Scheme. This is a national direct debit scheme for churches that lets us claim any Gift Aid right away, and helps us with our cash flow.

You can find out more details of the scheme on the Parish Giving Scheme website here and if you decide you would like to join, then please pick up a pack in church or contact the the church treasurer. 100% of your donation will come to us.

Alternatively, you can set up a regular donation online through Church Suite here, but please note we are charged 2.5% of your donation when you use this service.

You can also donate at each service either through our envelope scheme or by cash donation. Please ask at a service or contact the office.

One-off donations

You can donate to the parish online through Church Suite here, or direct to our bank account. Please contact us for bank account details.

If you’d like to give a one-off donation by cheque please make it payable to “The Parish of Bitterne Park” and post it to the office:

Bitterne Park Parish Office,
1 Thorold Road,
SO18 1HZ.

Gift Aid

If you are a tax payer we can reclaim the tax on your donations (if you join the Parish Giving Scheme this will be done automatically for us if applicable). Please contact the office for a form, or complete a white Gift Aid envelope in church when you make a donation

Donate to church whilst you shop online

We have an EasyFundraising account, where big retailers donate to church every time you shop online through the portal.
