We are very grateful for all donations given to St Nicholas. Below are the different ways that you can contribute to our Church.

Standing Orders

If you wish to give regular donations to St Nicholas, please download the Standing Order Mandate.
Please complete the form
and send to your bank. Alternatively, using the St Nicholas bank details on the Standing Order form you may be able to access on-line banking and set up the standing order yourself.

Please remember that if you are a UK tax payer you can use Gift Aid to increase your offering. For details of how Gift Aid can increase your donation please go to our Gift Aid information page. Please download a Gift Aid declaration form, fill it in and return it to Stewart Rogerson c/o St Nicholas Parish Church, 209 Main Street, Prestwick KA9 1LH.

Freewill Envelopes

We strongly recommend that, rather than donate with cash you contribute to the Church using a standing order. Please look at the Standing Orders section above for details of how to change your donation to a regular Standing Order donation.

If you wish to continue donating using Freewill Offering envelopes, please put your normal offering aside each week in the dated envelope and hand them in each Sunday.
