Registering your Parish
The Parish Giving Scheme is available across the Diocese of York from June 2020, and so from now any parish can register and promote the Scheme to your community. In order to be a part of the Scheme, your PCC must first agree to register for the Scheme, and complete a Registration Form which can be downloaded here. Once you have completed your Registration Form, you will need to send it along with emails from your signatories and a paying in slip to your Diocesan Giving Adviser. If you are not already working with a Giving Adviser, the team can be contacted here.
We recommend that, once you are able to, pass a resolution for which a certificate can be downloaded here.

Promoting PGS to your community
As PGS is a mechanism for giving, rather than a motivational tool, it is strongly recommended that you promote the Scheme alongside an appropriate Giving Programme, which facilitates a more prayerful and fruitful response rooted in discipleship. Your Giving Adviser can help you to plan and deliver this, and will provide you with useful resources and template materials.
