Offertory envelopes and standing orders for offerings
We now have the facility to take offerings using text messaging. To use this service and to contribute £5 to the Parish Offertory, please text CHURCH BATLEY to 70500
Please note that it is a feature of the text-giving facility that allows for no more and no less than £5 to be given to the Offertory via each text. If your regular weekly parish giving is either more or less than this amount, please feel free either to send more than one text – or maybe use this facility just once a month. Thank you for supporting the work of the Church: your generosity is much needed and particularly appreciated at this time
For further information, please see below, from the Diocese of Leeds website.
The Diocese of Leeds will receive 96% of your £5 donation. The money will come from your mobile network account. You only pay a donation if you receive a reply message back, some mobile phone accounts have text donations blocked on them because they are business phones or they are pre-pay phones with insufficient credit. You may (depending on network) have to pay to send a “standard rate” message which should cost about 10p. Always get the bill payers permission. If you have questions about this service call 03306600425 to speak to someone from the service provider Vir2.Text Giving
