CWT Giving

St Mary’s Christian Workers Trust (CWT) is a registered charity established to support Christian Work and Christian Workers focussed on the Basingstoke area and extending to UK and around the world. Recently between 70% and 80% of the budget of CWT has gone to support staff of St. Mary's PCC; more details can be found on the staff page. 18%–23% has been donated to other Christian charities or Christian workers, especially partners of St. Mary's Church, some in Basingstoke, some UK and some in other countries and continents around the world; more information can be found on the partner support page.

The generous support from our donors has meant that, since the 2021 appeal, income has grown in line with additional staff costs such that CWT finances are strong and we are very grateful to those who have continued to faithfully give, both as regular donations and occasional lump sum gifts.

The CWT Appeal – Autumn 2022 aims to continue the current level of giving for the next year for both regular and occasional lump sum gifts.

As further staff are brought on CWT reserves will begin to fall but this should not pose a problem in 2023.

The trustees believe that it is more appropriate for new donors and increased giving to be targeted to the PCC for the coming year however we would like to see a repeat of last years occasional lump sum gifts and some small increases in regular giving to offset the inevitable decreases from people moving away or becoming unable to continue giving. Please carefully and prayerfully consider giving, or increasing your giving. The needs of PCC are more acute in 2023. If you would like to change your giving to the CWT please respond through the Response Form. If you are a UK tax payer please also tick the Gift Aid box on the response form.
