Donate Now that we are no longer in vacancy, we are no longer credited with £1,423 per month towards our Parish Share of £3,833 per month and we have to find the full £46,000 per year. At present there is no possibility of our meeting this amount. Please consider either increasing your regular standing order (if you already pay this way) or starting a standing order each month. Details and forms can be found at the back of the church or talk to Lesley. If you are a taxpayer, we can claim back the Gift Aid on your donation and this currently pays us an extra £6,500 per year. The advantage to the church of paying by standing order is that when you are not in church, the money is paid automatically. We can also claim Gift Aid on the weekly collection plate. We are very grateful for all donations received as every little helps.

The Essex Lottery TEL is an exciting weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in Essex. All good causes supported by the lottery will benefit Essex and its residents. Play the lottery, support Essex - it’s that simple! Tickets for the lottery cost just £1 a week. Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each week, with a top prize of £25,000! That’s a better chance of winning than the National Lottery or the Health Lottery. Each ticket has six numbers and each number is between 0 and 9.
There will be a draw every Saturday night when a six digit winning combination will be picked. Prizes will be given to players with tickets that match the first or last 2 to 6 numbers from the winning combination. Match all six and you win the jackpot! The lottery and its prizes are our way of putting the fun in fundraising. The real winners are the good causes. From every £1 ticket sold 60p will go to good causes in Essex. To put this in perspective when you play the National Lottery 25% goes to good causes – we’ve more than doubled the ticket percentage that goes to good causes.
Even better, you can choose which good cause gets 50p of the 60p (the remaining 10p will be distributed to other local good causes). If you choose St Georges Church as your good cause, we benefit. Please consider supporting this cause. You never know- you may win a prize! Go to essexlottery.co.uk
