Giving and Finance

Busbridge and Hambledon churches, like most churches in the UK, are almost entirely funded by voluntary giving from the church members. Churches do not generally receive any income from central or local government, except where they provide specific, government supported services.

Both churches are registered charities, and you can find the Busbridge Church annual published accounts here.

It costs nearly £500,000 a year to run Busbridge and Hambledon churches. We are grateful to the many people who enable the church to flourish through regular planned giving: this is usually done by a monthly standing order.

There is always a collection plate available at each service. Special collections are taken about four times a year to support other charities, missionaries and organisations chosen by our Mission Partnering group.

Ways of Giving

Standing Order
Having a regular income is very helpful so the church can plan its activities to make best use of the available funds. You can set up a standing order by online banking, or by completing a form at your bank.

The bank details you may need are as follows:

Bank: NatWest, Godalming Branch
Sort Code: 60-09-04
Account name: Busbridge PCC
Account no: 00705349

Bank: NatWest, Godalming Branch
Sort Code: 60-09-04
Account name: Hambledon PCC

Other ways to give:

If you prefer to make a donation by cheque, these can be sent to Martin Lambert, Busbridge Treasurer (make cheques out to Busbridge PCC) or Andrew Dunn, Hambledon Treasurer (make cheques out to Hambledon PCC), at the Church Office address.

You can also leave a donation in the collection plate at one of our services.


Gift Aid

If you have paid sufficient tax in the tax year in which you make the donation, then we are able to claim an additional 25% on all the amounts given. 
This is clearly very significant for us, so please do complete a Gift Aid form if you are entitled to do so.
You can download a form here. Please complete and send a scan of the form to martin.lambert@bhcgodalming.org or andrew.dunn@bhcgodalming.org.

You can also collect hard copies of the form and return them to the Church Office.

Thank you very much for your support of the work of Busbridge and Hambledon churches.


Church Family Support Fund

The Church Family Support Fund is a separate fund to support families and individuals in our community in times of difficulty.
