Important Note (existing donors)
If you wish to use the same email address that you have previously provided to us for correspondence, the website will recognize your address when you enter it. However, if as an existing donor you have not yet provided the PGS with an email address, please contact us first so that we can update your records and verify your identity. You can do this by calling us on 0333 002 1260, or by email.
To maintain your existing online account go to:
Contact PGS by telephone (Monday to Friday 9am-5pm) to create a direct debit.
To setup a direct debit a ten-minute phone call should be all it takes.
1. Have your bank account details such as account number, sort code and name of the bank to hand.
2. Phone: 0333 002 1271 (calls cost no more than a national call to a landline and count towards inclusive minutes) to register and setup your direct debit.
The following information will be required:
Church name: St Paul's Church, Church Road,
Skelmersdale, WN8 8ND
Our unique church code is: 220622163
You will receive confirmation by email or post once your direct debit has been setup.
To change or cancel your direct debit once it is setup, login to your online account as above, or ring the PGS team on 0333 002 1260 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org

If you are a tax payer and wish to Gift Aid this can also be arranged. Any existing Gift Aid declaration to St Paul's is unaffected.
Finally you have the option to increase your giving in line with inflation each year. If you do choose this option, PGS will check with you every year to make sure you still want to increase your giving by direct debit.
