What will the Special Offering be used for?

10% of everything that is given will be set inside into our mission fund. 60% will be giving to further development of the Peterborough Building, with the installation of 350 more seats in the auditorium. 20% of what is given will go into our Cambridge Campus Building Fund. The remaining 10% will go towards the launch of the KingsGate Leadership Academy.

Monthly giving into the Special Offering will be split as above.

How much should I give into 'Think Bigger and Beyond' Special Offering?

Each of us should give what we believe the Lord is asking us to give. It will involve sacrifice, but we want everyone to give freely and cheerfully. All contributions are valuable however large or small.

Can I change my monthly commitment?

Yes, if for any reason you wish to alter your pledge (e.g. your financial situation changes) you can either increase or decrease your commitment. If you have set up a standing order, you will need to change it via online banking or contact your bank.

How do I know whether to complete a Gift Aid declaration?

If you complete a gift aid declaration, KingsGate are able to claim 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate. If you are a UK tax payer and would like us to claim the tax back on your donations, please complete an online gift aid declaration. This will not increase your tax payments. Please do not complete a gift aid declaration if you are not a tax payer or if the tax you pay is below the amount to be reclaimed.

What do I need to do if I complete a Gift Aid declaration and my circumstances change?

Please notify us if you:

  • Change your name or address while the declaration is still in force
  • Want to cancel the declaration. It will then not apply to donations you make on or after the date of cancellation, or such later date as you specify
  • No longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains

What happens if I am a higher rate tax payer?

If you pay income tax at the higher or additional rate and you want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.

I am currently giving into the Peterborough Building Fund – can I switch my standing order to the Special Offering?

If you would like to continue to give the same amount, then you will need to cancel your standing order for the building fund and set up a new standing order using the bank details below. Please fill out the monthly commitment section on the giving guide to let us know you are still continuing to give.

‘KingsGate Community Church Special Offering’

Please note that any giving that goes into the Building Fund after March 2024 will be treated as Special Offering income.

What if I am unable to attend the service on Sunday 3 March?

You are still able to give into this offering, please see the ‘How to Give’ section above. Alternatively, if you would like to give in-person, there will be a second opportunity to give on Sunday 17 March.

Can I give by cash or cheque?

Yes you can. Please make cheques payable to “KingsGate Community Church”, making sure your cheque (or cash) is securely enclosed within an envelope.

Where do I post my completed giving guide?

If you've downloaded a giving guide to print, or have taken one home, please post your completed guide to our Peterborough building:
