Judith Davies: Parish Administrator
I grew up in Stoke-on-Trent, studied History at Nottingham University and lived in Nottingham for some years, followed by a brief stay in Birmingham, before moving to Prestbury in 1999. I have worked in St Peter’s Parish Office for 9 years.
The Recorder looks after giving to the church through the Stewardship programme. This involves maintaining lists of those who regularly give to the church by Bank Standing Order and those who give each week using specific numbered envelopes put on the collection plate. In both cases the givers make a Gift Aid Declaration which enables the church to increase the value of the gift by reclaiming Basic Rate Tax. Givers who are not in the regular scheme may also Gift Aid their donation by using a yellow envelope and signing a declaration on the back. The Recorder also manages transaction with the Bank and assists the Treasurer in such things as paying bills.
