Contactless Giving in Your Parish

Contactless Giving in Your Parish

Posted on behalf of Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich

In recent years, the UK has seen a huge shift from a predominantly cash based economy to one that, in 2018, processed over 47% of all payments by card compared to just 28% for cash. A shift of this scale requires us to consider alternative methods of enabling generous donations and payments (shop, café, festivals, etc), namely contactless giving.

This presentation, held by our Diocesan Stewardship Team, will cover the basics of contactless giving, including:

  • Background to UK changing financial landscape and declining access to cash

  • Devices on the market (we will bring some of these along)

  • Distinguishing between payment and donation terminals

  • Calculating a financial return

  • FAQs (costs involved, signal availability, offline donations, amongst many others)

The event is open to all PCC members including churchwardens,clergy, LGAs & treasurers. There is a maximum of two attendees per parish. Refreshments will be provided.


The car park has 25 spaces available. As the church is located within a residential area there may be additional  parking spaces on the road but this cannot be guaranteed.


Registration is at 10:15-10:30.

For any queries please get in touch with Lee Jukes, Stewardship Manager (
