If you would like to support the Church financially, there are a number of options:
a) Standing Order to the Church bank account, which keeps you in control through your instructions to your bank (on a monthly, quarterly or yearly basis).
b) Envelopes (WFO ‘Weekly Freewill Offering’) – normally put in offering plates during services – but during lockdown the Clerk to the Board, Bob McMillan, has offered to be a collection point or will arrange for collection from your home if requested.
(please specify if it is for a special use/project as this will ensure that it goes into a local initiative):
a) Cheque payable to ‘Dundonald Church of Scotland’ – usually it is simplest to post it to the Treasurer but collection can be arranged if preferred (as in 1. Bob McMillan will be happy to assist).
b) By direct bank transfer to ‘Dundonald Church of Scotland’:
Bank account number 00331893
Sort code 80-08-42
c) During Covid – online through a secure facility set up and managed by the Church of Scotland at: www.churchofscotland.org.uk/donate – click on ‘Donate to a congregation’ and then type in “Dundonald” and select “Dundonald-Ayr” followed by your details as prompted. (Note, this can also be used for regular giving but generally 1a, above, is the preferred option.)
For any of the above, if you are a tax payer, it is possible for the Church to recover an extra 20% in tax reclaim through a gift aid declaration at no extra cost to you.
If you would like to use one of these options or would like more details, please contact the Clerk to the Board, Bob McMillan or the Treasurer, Sheila Tannock.
