Donate to diocesan projects

The Parish Giving Scheme now enables churches to set up online giving for both regular and one off donations.  You can find out more about using this or other methods of online giving for your church by contacting (Lancaster Archdeaconry) or (Blackburn Archdeaconry).

Giving online enables you to:

  • give without needing cash
  • give online without needing access to online banking - you only need a debit or credit card and Parish Giving Scheme lets you use GPay or Apple Pay
  • If you are a taxpayer you can also make a gift aid declaration at the same time
  • give before or after an event if it wasn't convenient at the time

To give to any of the following funds, please click the appropriate 'Donate here' button.   

Bishop’s Ordination Fund

As part of Vision 2026 we are committed to growing vocations and increasing the number of ordinands and curates in training.  The Bishop’s Ordination Fund helps to fund the grants made to assist with the living and removal cost of those in training. 

You can donate to the Bishop’s Ordination Fund here or by clicking the purple ‘Donate here’ button. 

Diocese Harvest Appeal

Each year the diocese nominates specific charities to receive the proceeds of the Harvest Appeal. 

You can donate to this here or by clicking the green ‘Donate here’ button..


Parish Vision Fund

The Parish Vision Fund makes grants to parishes to help with work that is furthering Vision 2026.  You can find more information about the Parish Vision Fund as well as application forms for parishes requiring assistance here.

You can donate to support the work of the Parish Vision Fund here or by clicking the blue ‘Donate here’ button.


Visitation charities.

Each year, the Archdeacons nominate specific charities to receive the offerings at the Annual Visitation Services.  This year, following Bishop Joseph's visit to the Diocese, the Archdeacons have chosen CRESS as their charity.  CRESS was established to educate and train South Sudanese people with the knowledge and skills to empower them to establish self-sustaining communities. CRESS works with the local church as this is not only a good strategy, it’s at the very heart of their work. CRESS wants to see local churches creating and leading change in their communities.  You can donate to support the Visitation Charity here or by clicking the gold ‘Donate here’ button.




If you would like help to set up an online giving page for your own church to add to your own website, please get in touch with (Lancaster Archdeaconry) or (Blackburn Archdeaconry).
