Last year we set up and implemented a new fees payment system.  Please could you email all monthly fees returns forms to fees@chester.anglican.org rather than to the inbox of an individual.

In January 2019 we also set up a new Direct Debit (DD) system for collecting fees, separate 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 have fees collected this way, 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 around the 20th of the month.

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 this system or would like to be added to the DD register, please don’t hesitate to contact Maxine Southwick by telephone on 01928 718834 ext. 239 or by email at maxine.southwick@chester.anglican.org
