Help our Diocese continue its transforming work as we seek to make a positive difference to every community in South London and East Surrey. We are uniquely placed across South London and East Surrey to support the most vulnerable people facing many challenges in this pandemic.
Together we have faced many challenges. Our parish clergy, hospital and prison chaplains and churches support many people in the midst of their happiest and saddest times. We have significant areas of poverty across the Diocese. Our churches are involved with many social action and justice projects, supporting and hosting food banks, and working with refugees. As restrictions allow, our churches host homeless night shelters, parent and toddler groups, kids’ clubs, youth groups, and work with those who have money problems, debt issues and more. With your support we can share Jesus’ love and good news with our Southwark neighbours.
All donations towards the mission and ministry of the Diocese are very gratefully received. We encourage donations to the Diocese via:
The Parish Giving Scheme - giving monthly, quarterly or annually
This is our preferred method for donations as we receive 100% of your donation plus Gift Aid is automatically claimed for us, which means reduced administration and less work for our Finance Department. You can also opt to increase your gift with an inflationary uplift each year which helps us keep pace with rising costs.
You can sign up online, by telephone, or by post. However you sign up, you will need the following details:
- PGS Code: 370637000
- PGS Name: Southwark SLCF SDBF

Please do opt into Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, and choose to inflation-link your giving which will make a huge difference to our Diocese’s finances.
