Digital giving and The Church of England

We’ve recently been supporting the Carlisle Diocese of the Church of England with a pilot scheme that aims to eventually roll out digital giving devices across its churches throughout the UK.

It was truly exciting to engage with churches in across Cumbria and the Lake District, to kick off what is part of a £1.25million investment from the Church of England.

GWD supplied and installed donation stations into churches across the Carlisle Diocese, acting as a test bed for the introduction of contactless fundraising technology into its churches.

Certainly, it was fascinating to hear why the Church of England is venturing into digital giving.

Interviewed on BBC Radio Cumbria, Grace Emnett, National Digital Giving Manager at Church of England, said of the project:

“We’re so used to using card…much more than cash for the most part, particularly over the course of the last year.”

“That’s become really important [for churches]…who are really relying on people’s generosity to kind of keep their doors open.”

Why add digital giving devices to your charity or faith organisation?

A good contactless giving device has customisable design, donation amount variation and proven reliability. Read more about our Contactless Payment Devices and how they’re designed to maximise digital giving potential.
