Last year the big news story in all the national papers was “16,000” churches across the UK are now able to accept Debit / Credit Cards payments for donations and other fees.
It was a bit of a shock to realise that we were one of the 16,000, and so we needed to bring ourselves into 20th century (chip and pin) and 21st century (contactless). Well we have done it, and it is actually quite painless. We are rolling out this service slowly, and it might be some time before the machine will be passed around in the collection. However, if you come to “Tots and Toys”, or need to book the Church or Hall for a party or meeting, or you want to purchase tickets for an event, then don’t worry about cash, we can take CARDS.
