About Us

Giving to St Andrew’s

As a church we are involved in a wide range of activities, locally and overseas.

Working with children, families, and the elderly.  Working in schools, individuals’ homes, offering support to other charities in the town, and just being there for people when they need to speak to someone. We also support mission partners both at home and overseas, and support our wider denominations with personnel and resources.

Like all churches we receive no money from Government or the central church. Everything we spend we have to raise from local donations, through regular members and the rental from our halls.   So, we are dependent upon individuals responding to the call of God to support the work here at St Andrew’s.

At the time of writing obtaining your regular gifts is much harder due to the closure of our buildings.  Currently with no Church services taking place,  halls not being rented by the various community groups, and bills still coming in (insurance, staff costs, maintenance) these are challenging times.  We therefore are asking our members, who haven’t already set up regular transfers, to remember us and help in one of the following ways. 


Send a cheque made payable to St Andrew’s Church place in an envelope and mark it for the attention of Mr Peter Crouch c/o The Vicarage, 169 Maidstone Rd, Paddock Wood Kent TN12 6DZ


St Andrew’s has its own text message giving account on which we can receive your donations. By simply texting 70085 and typing in SAPW followed by the amount you want to give you could make a donation.

For example:

SAPW 10 to donate £10
or SAPW 20 to donate £20

The cost of the donation, plus a standard rate message, will be added to your mobile phone bill. You will receive a thank you text soon after you send the donation. This will provide an option to add Gift Aid – please do consider this as it enables us to claim a further 25% on top of your donation if you are a UK taxpayer.


If you use one of these systems you could use our BACS details to make a single payment or to set up a Standing Order to pay either a weekly or monthly amount.

Our details are:

If you are a tax payer we as a charity can claim the Gift Aid  on your donation – which will increase your gift by a further 25% at nil cost to you.
