If you would like to make a one-off or regular donation to our three churches, please see below information to help you.
We now have two Bank Accounts:
There is a new Bank Account for our larger Parish: ‘PRCDTR Parish of the Most Holy Trinity’. This account will handle all general finances for the parish and general expenses for our three churches.
The second Bank Account is also new and is titled ‘PRCDTR St Michael and St George Restoration Fund’. This account is strictly to handle funds for the Lyme Regis church restoration project.
General Points to Making Donations:
If you wish to make regular contributions to either or both of the above accounts, this is best done by Bank Standing Order and there are links to these forms below. Generally speaking, this is a simple process to set up and giving regularly helps the Parish Office to better handle its finances. Bank Standing Orders remain the best method for regular donations because they are cheap for the parish to run and easy to process.
If you wish to make donations by cheque, please write the cheque to the appropriate Bank Account as above and post to, Parish Secretary, The Priests House, St Mary’s Church, Lyme Road, Axminster, EX13 5BE.
Our loose plate collectins have resumed and within certain rules we are able to reclaim tax on monies given this way.
Bank Standing Orders:
To donate regularly for the general support of the parish the Bank Standing Order form to complete is here. Please click the green button.
To donate regularly for the Lyme Regis Restoration Project, the Bank Standing Order form to complete is here. Please click the blue button.
Please note that funds raised for the Lyme Regis restoration project will create a ‘restricted fund’, and will be accounted for as such. If for some good reason the appeal project cannot be completed or if a surplus arises, the remaining funds will be used for general charitable purposes for the parish. Our church in Lyme Regis is part of the RC Parish of The Most Holy Trinity and part of PRCDTR, registered charity number 213227.
Sums donated to either or both of our Parish Accounts can be ‘Gift Aided’. If you are an Income Tax payer, your contribution can earn the Parish an extra 25% and regular donations by Bank Standing Order are recommended as most cost effective to the parish.
To register as a Gift Aid donor, please complete the Gift Aid Declaration Form which can be downloaded by clicking on this link:
The completed form should then be sent to: The Parish Secretary, The Priests House, St Mary’s Church, Lyme Road, Axminster, EX13 5BE.
