Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Kingsland Church Colchester to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Kingsland Church Colchester we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Kingsland Church Colchester to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Kingsland Church Colchester will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Kingsland Church Colchester receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Celebrating life!

We love to celebrate life and give thanks to God in everything at Kingsland Church. Let everything and everyone that has breath praise the Lord! There are a few significant moments that stand out like birth, marriage and even death – these are times when it is important for us to meet together, celebrate and be thankful.


Kingsland Church is full of young families and we love it when they have babies! Right through a pregnancy other young mums and the wider church family are here to support and encourage as the arrival of the new baby is anticipated. When the child is born we encourage parents to bring their new child to church for a Dedication Service. This is usually part of our Sunday morning worship and is a part of the service when the parents and family come forward to introduce their baby and to say thank you to our Heavenly Father for the gift of their child. Parents often choose a name with a particular meaning and it’s great to be able to share the reasons for a particular name. As a church family we pray together for the child and family.


Baptism in Kingsland is an entirely wet affair! Lots of water and lots of God! We believe in adult baptism by full immersion. That is taking a public step of faith to say you are a follower of Jesus and declare it through baptism. We have baptised scores of people at Kingsland Church in local pools, in the sea and in our own pool constructed for the purpose.


Kingsland Church is licensed for marriage ceremonies and in the spirit of our independent tradition we encourage couples to make it really personal and write their own services and vows to reflect their personal faith. Of course it has to include the legal parts of the marriage service, but the best weddings at Kingsland Church are those where we can really worship God and celebrate together joyfully.

Neil or Ian conduct most of our weddings. “They vary hugely, from very formal affairs to completely relaxed and easy going. It so depends on the couple and how they want to express their spirituality and share their joy in the presence of God. It’s not about having a ‘perfect day’; it’s about getting married and making your promises before God and in the company of your best friends.”


Funerals at Kingsland Church are a mixture of sadness and reflection, but they are also an expression of our hope and expectation of Heaven. In grieving together we can ask difficult questions and share the feelings of bereavement we experience in losing someone we love, but we can also celebrate the life that has been lived and joy that has been in the past. We rejoice that death isn’t the final chapter because of Jesus. The best funerals are for those who have lived long with faith and faithfulness, where we are confident of a great reward and a strong welcome into glory and the presence of Jesus.
