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.

Our History

Kingsland Church's history in Colchester

Kingsland Church Colchester was originally started in 1884 in Lexden by some local Quakers who built our original hall. It was established as a place of worship and temperance and ran an adult school on Sundays and a people’s bank. A full-time minister was appointed in 1927. In 1971 it became the Lexden Evangelical Church, after Neil’s predecessor was appointed. In the 1980’s the church became much more vibrant, growing steadily as we adopted a lively, informal, contemporary worship style and we changed our name to Kingsland Church.

In 1991, a second congregation was formed, which is now an independent church known as Lifehouse in Shrub End. They planted another congregation in Tiptree in 1998. The growth in Lexden continued and in 1996 a congregation was established in Stanway which is now known as Bethel Church.

A few years later we started a second Sunday morning service, and continued to grow so built a new building on the same site in 2005. In 2010 we moved again to much larger premises, to the top floor of the former MFI building on the corner of London Road and Straight Road. Aldi moved in below. Our facilities include a 400-seater worship area, large hall, nine meeting rooms, office accommodation and a large café area for the church and local community.

Since we moved to 86 London Road, Colchester, CO3 9DW, we've enjoyed developing King's Café and the Community Centre as a valued local resource, as well as the church itself. As we've continued to grow we have been able to expand our staff and leadership teams, our services, as well as our profile in the area.
