What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid is a scheme which allows charities to claim an extra 25p for every £1 donated if you are a UK taxpayer. Gift Aid increases the value of donations by 25%, so it means even more money goes to the causes you care about – and it won’t cost you extra.

For Living Stones to claim Gift Aid on your donation, you need to make a Gift Aid declaration (GAD). The GAD confirms you’re a UK taxpayer and that you have agreed that Gift Aid may be claimed on your donation. If your circumstances change and your donations are no longer eligible for Gift Aid, you just need to let us know.

In line with the UK government’s special measures, we are currently gathering online via various platforms including Facebook Live, YouTube and Zoom for our Sunday Services, bible studies, and other care group meetings.

Donations can be made directly to the church bank account:

  • Bank: Lloyds Bank
  • Sort Code: 30 99 08
  • Account No: 22981268
  • Account Name: Living Stones 

If your donation is towards one of our social projects or departments, please use your payment reference to indicate which project E.g. Esther Project, Ezra Project, Safe House, Youth, etc.

For any further advice or if you have any needs, someone will be on standby to assist so please email the church office at livingstones100@gmail.com, or text/call the office mobile number 07977 220182.
