Donating to Cornerstone
We are very grateful to everyone for your generosity in supporting the church during these past difficult months.
- Thank you to everyone who is continuing to donate through the Parish Giving and Bankers’ Order Schemes.
- Thank you to those of you in the weekly envelope scheme who are putting your money in the envelopes as usual each week and saving them to bring in when possible.
- And a very special thank you to those members of the weekly envelope scheme who have already made payments to us by on-line / telephone banking or by sending cheques.
Despite all this, like many charities we have seen a reduction in our income. Therefore, any monetary support you are able to give is very much appreciated. Giving may be through the following methods.
We have a charity deposit account with the Metro Bank which can be used to safely receive on-line or telephone banking donations. The details you need to donate are:

(apologies it’s so long, but it has to be our official charity name!)
Sort Code: 23-05-80

Please use your name for the payment reference, then we know who the money is from and can claim gift-aid if appropriate.
