Wedding, Memorial and Funeral donations fees
Thank you for thinking of using our Chaplaincy for your event.
The minimum donations are set by the Chaplaincy Council. Which is the body reporting to the Church of England’s Diocese in Europe. They are broadly in line (subject to exchange rate variations) with the fees charged by the Church of England in English parish churches. The fees are treated as charitable donations, so you are able to pay them using Gift Aid so that we can recover a further 28% from the UK tax man if you pay UK tax. If you wish to do this, you will need to pay the fee in the equivalent sterling to the Diocesan sterling account in the UK. If you do this, please make it clear on the transaction that it is for Costa del Sol West Chaplaincy and what it is for.
