As a benefice we support various local charities, as well as raising money for the upkeep of the churches, and to pay our Parish Share.
Although BACS has been creeping in over the years, traditionally most congregational giving has been by cash collections during services. During the pandemic this has had to change, and there are numerous other ways of contributing.
Click on the "Giving details" button below to find out all alternative ways of donating to each of our churches.
Giving to the churches
Would you be able to make a donation to one of the Barton churches? Even a small donation can help, but if that is not possible right now, we understand.
Click the "Giving details" button if this is of interest - you can give by BACS, standing order, text, cash or cheque.
If you can Gift Aid your donation that would help too as this adds 25p to every £1 you give.
If you are a regular member of a congregation your Treasurer will already know if you normally Gift Aid your donation, but if you would like to request a Gift Aid form please email us with the name of your PCC.

"Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness."
Because of the pandemic, we were not able to accept donations of fresh produce in 2020, but non perishable and tinned goods were collected at our harvest services, and donations split between Polly's work with the homeless in Banbury, and the Food Banks.
"Ride & Stride" in aid of the Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust
Every September, people are invited to undertake sponsored rides or walks between as many churches as they can manage, to raise money for the maintenance of historic churches in the area. Half of the sponsorship goes to the Trust and the other half to the rider's own church. See our Events and Social page for what happened locally in 2020.
