We are in the process of setting up and implementing a new fees payment system.  With immediate effect, please could you email all future monthly fees returns forms to: fees@chester.anglican.org

From January 2019 we are setting up a new Direct Debit (DD) system for collecting fees, separately to that already in place for collecting parish share.  Allowing us to collect fees by DD is quick, easy and should save those in charge of church finances time, as we are able to change the amounts here on receipt of your monthly fees returns forms.

Should you wish to partake in the new fees DD scheme, we ask that you remit your monthly forms no later than the 10th of the following month for which you are completing your form, so January’s form should be with us by 10th February, and so on.  Funds will be collected from your account by the 20th of the month.

If you would like us to collect your future fees in this way, please email Maxine Southwick so that you can be added to the register.

If you already pay your fees by DD with your monthly parish share, unless we hear otherwise, you will automatically be transferred to the new system, so please make a note of the new date that the funds will be collected.

If you currently pay parish share by DD, you will not need to complete a new mandate.  However, for those who don’t presently pay anything to Chester DBF by DD, or if your fees are to be collected from a different bank account to your parish share, you will need to complete a mandate authorising and allowing us to collect your fees.  If you need a mandate, please let us know and we can email one to you for completion.

If you have any questions regarding the new system, please don’t hesitate to contact Maxine Southwick by telephone on 01928 718834 ext. 239 or by email at maxine.southwick@chester.anglican.org
