Holy Trinity Church, Messingham

Fundraising

The church is constantly in need of funds to pay for normal running costs as well as contributing to longer-term improvements and major repairs. We raise funds in a variety of ways but they all come down to the generosity of individuals. Some of the ways you can help are given below.

Donations

  • Regular giving – this can simply be putting some cash on the collection plate during a church service. However, many people, whether church-goers or not, make a regular monthly payment either by standing order or direct debit [coming soon] directly into the church’s bank account.
  • One off donation- we receive single donations from a variety of sources. These can include a bell-ringing quarter peal to mark family events, a funeral collection and the proceeds of some sponsored event.
  • Legacies – as with many charities, our church can be a beneficiary in someone’s will as many people like to put something back into the community after their death.

 

For further details of how to make a donation, set up a legacy or begin regular giving get in touch with our treasurer Mike Mawson on 01724 764025.

If you are a UK tax payer, we are able to claim GiftAid on your contributions which increase the value of your gift by 25%. You simply have to fill in a declaration and we’ll do the rest. Click here to download form

Fundraising Events

The church holds concerts, fayres and other events to raise funds. Come and support these events and you will be contributing to the upkeep of the church. Keep up to date with the latest news on Facebook.

Ride and Stride is an event run every September throughout the county by the Lincolnshire Churches Trust. Participants walk or cycle between churches and get sponsorship for their efforts. Funds generated are split between the participating church and the Trust. Watch out for details on Facebook and the website.

Repeating an event we held in 2017, next Christmas we are having a concert by “The Moggies” organised jointly with the Messingham Lindsey Lodge Supporters’ group. Linking up with other organisations can increase the audience and bring new people into the church. If you belong to another organisation that could itself benefit from a joint venture or that you feel could help the local community by linking with the church please let us know.

Some of our handy parishioners regularly make items for sale to help raise vital funds. These sell particularly well around Christmas time. If you have any sort of crafty skill and can produce any articles to add to our range please get in touch.

New and nearly-new items, large or small, are regularly sold at one of our fairs held throughout the year. All donations welcome!

Giving is not only about giving cash or coming to an event; we are always looking for new types of event and for people to help organise them. If you’ve a good idea for something new or just want to help then get in touch.
