Donate to the Church

The impact of the global pandemic Coronavirus has forced us to close our church buildings and stop many of our usual activities, but the vital work of the Church goes on and is needed now, more than ever.

In communities across Scotland and beyond, churches continue to provide ministry, practical support and loving care to people from all walks of life.

Many Church of Scotland ministers and their congregations are reaching out by phone or online to provide pastoral care and spiritual support to people who need reassurance, hope and comfort. Many are supporting our key workers and their families as they continue to deliver vital services. They are caring for bereaved families amid challenging restrictions.

In addition, many churches are providing critical community services such as running foodbanks and feeding the hungry and homeless. A donation from you can help support the Church's work in your area and ensure the Church is sufficiently equipped and resourced to face these challenging times.

Whether you are a church member who wants to continue to give your regular offering to your own congregation or a friend to the Church who is moved to contribute for the good of your community, we want to help you support the Church in whichever way you feel led.

Through the donation form below, you may choose to give a one-off donation or donate every month. You can opt to direct your gift to a specific congregation or contribute to the general funds of the Church for use wherever the need is greatest.
