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.

More tales from the potting shed by Donna Walker

As a passionate gardener, I love the fact that Jesus was mistaken for the gardener by Mary Magdalene at the tomb. Jesus’ identity at that point had shifted; He was now resurrected.

During this time of uncertainty for many, the roles and jobs we have now taken on have given us a new identity. This could have a positive or a negative impact. Mothers and fathers of young children now have the new job of teacher. For some, their new identity is primary caregiver, as they nurse their sick loved ones. For some, their identity has shifted as they respond to the call to return to the NHS, giving them a sense of value and purpose.

However, for those dealing with the loss of their jobs and facing an uncertain future, this loss of identity has caused anxiety and pain. Somebody asked me recently, “What you do for a living?” I defensively gave them a list of all the things I do during the week, and then felt ashamed because I had armoured up in my reply . Then Jesus’ words came to me. When he asked, “Who do you say I am?” the Holy Spirit reminded me that I don’t need a title to be loved, accepted and valued by God. All I need to do is the will of the Father. It doesn’t matter that I am doing the mundane everyday tasks. It is with everything that I am doing and saying that I am building the Kingdom of God. My identity is as a passionate lover of Jesus and a child of God.

For those who are experiencing a shifting identity God says, I love you; you are mine.

I have been listening to the Lectio 365 daily devotional, part of the 24/7 Prayer resources, which has reminded me of what our purpose and identity is:

Father, help me to live this day to the full, being true to you in every way.

Jesus, help me to give myself away to others, being kind to everyone I meet.

Spirit help me to love the lost proclaiming Christ in all I do or say

Amen

During lockdown I have had the opportunity to spend time with God in this garden either praying or tending the plants. Spending time preparing the garden has quietened my spirit sufficiently to allow God to reassure me that my identity is given by Him and is in Him. It is here that God has quietly whispered to me that he wants me to prepare my garden for his Kingdom, preparing a place where those who need a place of rest and peace are able to find it. It has been an incredible time of revelation from God it is he alone that gives me my identity.
