The Church of England's 'Digital Rollout' of electronic contactless giving devices to churches across the Diocese of York reached the collection stage today (Wednesday 4th October) with successful applicants receiving their devices.
The Rollout, which started in July, is an initiative run by the C of E National Giving Team whereby 70 contactless devices are being given away for free to selected churches who are able to use them to collect gifts using credit cards. One of the first churches to collect their device from the Diocesan Office was St Nicholas Dunnington (pictured), who received a 'CollecTin More'.
Parish Treasurer Helen Pomfret said “This device will really help St Nicholas due to its versatility. We have many coffee mornings and other events in the church and Tower Room, and this device will allow people to make a financial gift to St Nicholas.”
