As a Baptist church we are financially independent, which means that all the money needed for the day to day life of the church comes from within the church itself. We rely completely on the generous giving of those who are part of our church family.
COVID has hit our monthly income hard, so any gifts you are able to make would be very much appreciated.
For more information about different ways in which you can give, some of the things your money will be used for, and how you can use Gift Aid to increase the amount the church receives at no extra cost to you, please read our leaflet 'A Guide to Giving'.
If you have further questions or would like more information, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
You can donate to the church via text message.*

Gifts made by standing order help us to budget and plan expenditure a bit more carefully. To set up a standing order, simply download the form below.
If you are not already registered for Gift Aid with the church, please also consider if this is something you can do. Gift Aid enables us to claim back an extra 25% of the amount you give at no extra cost to you.
COVID Support Funds
As a church we are also raising money for the two cause outlined below, both of which will be used to help people affected by COVID-19. All the money donated through these funds will go into the church account then be passed on.
Budleigh Relief in Need COVID Support
Throughout the COVID pandemic the Budleigh Support Group has been providing financial support to households struggling financially as a result of COVID. At the start of January, we had given nearly £30,000 to around 30 households, thanks to the generosity of various trusts and members of the community. However, as we re-enter lockdown we anticipate that our help will be needed more than ever. Click the button below to make a donation to the fund.
School Laptop Fund
St. Peter's School in Budleigh is launching a campaign to try and raise £5,000 to buy laptops to lend to pupils currently unable to access online learning during lockdown. They are looking for old devices (which have been factory reset to enable access) or financial donations. If you'd like to donate via the church fund, please click the button below.
* Fundraising, payments and donations will be processed and administered by the National Funding Scheme, operating as DONATE, a charity registered in England and Wales (1149800) and Scotland (SC045106).
