The work of Killearn Kirk within the parish and in the wider world is only made possible by the generous donations of its members and other donors. Your giving sustains our ministry and mission, and the wider work of the Church of Scotland.
Our parish ministry can be measured by the provision of pastoral care and spiritual support to people who need reassurance, hope and comfort. We share in the happy events in the celebration of baptism, the joy of a wedding, and also the sadder events of a funeral. You are also helping to sustain our church buildings – the Grade B listed church, the Kirk halls and grounds

Here are some ways you can give to the church:
The Gift Aid scheme allows us to recover some of the tax you have already paid. For £1 eligible donation given by Gift Aid it is possible for Killearn Kirk to recover a top-up of 25p from HMRC. This is an essential part of our total income. The Gift Aid convenor will acknowledge your payment. The tax recovery from HMRC itself is all done for you.
Contact the Gift Aid convenor for more information and a Gift Aid form.
For regular giving, please consider using a Standing Order. This saves us having to handle offering money at the church on a Sunday, and guarantees a regular income to the church, helping out Treasurer to plan more accurately. This way, you set up a regular amount which your bank will automatically transfer. You can alter or stop the Standing Order whenever you wish. The treasurer will provide a form which you can fill in and give to your bank- just get in touch with us to learn more.
Leaving a legacy in your will
The work of the Church has been assisted greatly by many generous gifts in the wills of members, adherents and supporters. If you wish to make a gift in your will to support the work of the Church, it can support your local congregation or the work of a particular council or the work of the Church of Scotland in general. A gift to the Church in your Will is exempt from Inheritance Tax. Our treasurer is happy to advise on this, and other matters concerning giving to the Church. The Church of Scotland website can provide more information on legacy.
Please contact the Treasurer if you would like to have more information on any of the above..
