Make A Gift

You can support the St Bart’s 900th Anniversary Campaign, by making a single or regular gift online, or by completing the donation form below. If you are a UK taxpayer, please consider using the Gift Aid form, so that we can increase your donation by 25% when we claim this from the government. Alternatively, we encourage you to discuss your gift and the options of dedicating or directing this to a specific anniversary project. Please contact the campaign office on +44 (0)20 7600 0440 or at campaign@greatstbarts900.com.

Total Gift Calculator

UK tax payers benefit from the Gift Aid scheme, which adds 25p from HMRC for every pound you give. When pledged over time this really adds up.  For example, a gift of £10,000 could be made by a donor paying £1,600 a year (or £133.34 a month) for five years, amounting to £8,000 to which a further £2,000 of Gift Aid can be claimed from HMRC by St Bart’s. Higher rate (40%) taxpayers can then reclaim additional relief when they submit their tax returns, reducing the net cost of their £10,000 gift to £6,000, or if they are additional rate (45%) taxpayers, the reduction is to £5,500. If we take full advantage of the Gift Aid scheme, HMRC could be our single largest funder!

The Company of Rahere

Our founder, Rahere, a courtier, pilgrim and favourite of King Henry I, still rests in the nave of Great St Bart’s and is fondly remembered for his devotion, compassion and service to the people of London. Our 900th anniversary is a moment not only to recognise the lives touched by our church since the early days of Rahere, but also a time to reflect on our responsibility as stewards of his legacy.

Endow a Day of Music

Music has always been at the heart of St Bartholomew the Great, with hundreds of years of plainchant and the evolving language of church music soaked into its fabric. Whether it be a great occasion attended by many, or daily Evensong, the musical programme enriches the liturgy and broadens our outreach activities.
