Here’s how you can give to support our church.
We are keen to encourage regular giving through Standing Orders, so thank you if you are already supporting us.
Setting up a routine Standing Order means we can receive your donation with no additional costs to the church. You can create the Standing Order direct with your bank, if you can’t do this, contact us at email@example.com and we’ll help.
Here are our bank details:
CAF Bank, Sort Code 40-52-40
Account Name: St Peter & St Paul PCC Buckingham
Account Number: 00013004
PLEASE NOTE due to new bank security protocols, if you have shortened the account name and receive an error message, you can still proceed, provided all other details are correct.
If you are a UK taxpayer, please Gift Aid your donation, enabling our church to reclaim a further 25% on your contribution. Download and complete our Gift Aid Declaration here. You can email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or send it to us.

One Off Donations
If you would like to make a one off donation or set up a monthly direct debit, it’s really easy to do with your debit or credit card; you can Gift Aid it too. Bear in mind we are charged a small processing fee to receive this donation: https://bpchurch.churchsuite.co.uk/donate/
Many smart phones have QR code capability so you can make a one off payment this way too.
How Much Should I Give?
Many Christians commit 10% of their income to their local church, here’s why it's good to give. We encourage all members and friends of Buckingham Parish Church to prayerfully decide what percentage of their income they will give and then make a pledge to give that amount. This helps us to more confidently plan our activities within the church and community.
We understand that giving is not just about money so have a look at the church life tab to see how you might want to get involved.
If you have any queries, please either e-mail Tracy here or call our Church Office on 01280 830220.

We have to maintain our grade 1 listed building and support churches in smaller communities through our Parish Contribution.
We have dedicated full time and part time employees, supported by a great team of unpaid volunteers all striving to support our local community, both practically and emotionally.
