Donating to Step

Step is funded by a combination of individual supporters, churches and grants. If you would like to contribute to the work of Step, here are several easy and secure ways to do so. Please also see the bottom of the page on how to gift aid your donation. You can also help support Step simply by shopping online. Find out how it works by clicking here

Option 1- Directly through your Bank 

This is our preferred option as there will be no charges so we will receive the whole amount you give. Please use the following bank details to set up a one-off donation or a regular standing order.

Bank: Lloyds Bank
Sort Code: 30-97-25
Account Number: 01338536
Account Name: St Albans and Harpenden Christian Education Project

Alternatively, you can also use our Financial Giving Form, which also enables you to sign up to updates. You can download this by clicking the link below. Please return this to Step c/o Forest Town Church, Lyon Way, St Albans, Herts, AL4 0LB.

Option 2- Cheque

Please send any cheques payable to 'Step' to our offices (Step c/o Forest Town Church, Lyon Way, St Albans, Herts, AL4 0LB).

Option 3- giving via Paypal or BT MyDONATE

This is our least favourite option as they take a fee from any donation but if you prefer, please follow the links below to donate directly and securely through PayPal and BT's MyDonate. Even if you do not have a PayPal account, you can still give through your credit or debit card (without needing to create an account) by clicking the option on the left at the bottom of PayPal's webpage above the pictures of the various cards they accept. 

gift aid your donation

If you're a taxpayer then do take advantage of the Government’s Gift Aid Scheme! You only need to complete the form once. This will enable us to reclaim the basic rate tax you have paid on any gifts you make to us - that’s a further £25 on a gift of £100 at no further cost to you. You can either download our Giving Form (link below) and fill in the Gift Aid section, which you can return to the Step offices (Step c/o Forest Town Church, Lyon Way, St Albans, Herts, AL4 0LB). The simplest way is to complete our online form below, which will be automatically sent to us.
