Prior to the merger of our six former parishes into the one parish of Wiverton in the Vale, each parish held charitable status by virtue of its affiliation to the Church of England. However, the new combined parish has a total income in excess of the threshold which requires independent registration with the Charities Commission. Consequently, we applied for, and have just received confirmation of our new status as an independent registered charity. Details of our registration can be found by clicking here.
If you currently give money to the church, you won’t need to do anything as all existing Gift Aid declarations remain valid for the new charity. In the future, our Gift Aid declaration forms will contain a reference to our new Registered Charity Number (1182644).
