Giving for the work of the church
You can support the work of the church financially in many different ways.
Regular giving by standing order is a very helpful option for our planning of our work, and it was vital during periods when we could not meet for worship. To take out a new standing order, please contact our Treasurer, Trevor Jones, for a form. contact Trevor Jones If you already have a standing order, please review it from time to time, to make sure you're giving at an appropriate level for your circumstances
You can give regularly using weekly offering envelopes. To obtain these you can email the treasurer at the link above or speak to Trevor Jones or Phamie Burns, or ask the minister to arrange envelopes for you. These can be returned through the offering plate.
You can make one-off online donations either directly from your bank to ours. Contact Trevor Jones for details, or you can use the online donation link below through the Church of Scotland online giving system.
Whichever of these methods you use, you can make your gift more valuable by signing a gift aid declaration if you are a UK taxpayer. That allows us to reclaim tax on your gift. The Gift Aid convenors are Jacky Stuart (Duncansburgh) and Irene Burns (Caol and Corpach), or you can contact the Treasurer on the email address above for a Gift Aid form.
You can also give by donation in the open plate at any of our services.
Finally, you can choose to include a donation to the church in your will. You can leave either a specific sum or a proportion of your estate, and your solicitor will advise you on the right wording. This is especially suitable for people who may have a limited income, but significant capital (such as a house which might no longer be needed for family after your death.) Legacies should normally be to Fort William Kilmallie Church of Scotland or its successors so it stays up to date in future. You can be specific or general, but remember that if you are too specific and you aim to support something we no longer do, we might be unable to accept a donation.
However you choose to give, your support is appreciated. It is a sign of Christian commitment and an important way of sharing in our work. Please review your giving regularly and prayerfully, and consider it as one part of your worship.
