You may have noticed a few people getting their mobile phones out as the collection bag is being passed around or perhaps you’ve noticed (at both Holy Trinity and St Saviour’s) an electronic tag (Beacon) inside the collection bags?

 

We have just started using a new way of giving - Givt.

 

This method of giving is not designed to replace anything else it is just another easy, alternative that you might use on days when you have no cash in your pocket or perhaps you want to give something extra on top of your regular giving. Or it might be how you choose to manage your regular weekly giving.

So how does it work and what do you need to do?

It works using a smartphone with Bluetooth turned on.  If you have limited or no data everything will upload once you are connected to Wi-Fi or your connection is stronger. Your phone communicates with the beacon via Bluetooth (not your internet data).

 

Download the app via the buttons on the left.  Decide the amount you are going to give, click next and choose the top option of the four offered - “Collection Bag”, tap the collection bag with the beacon in it, and that will be that.  You have given!

 

THE IMPORTANT BIT

In a short while, you will receive a request through the app to complete a Bank Direct Debit Instruction. This will need your name, address, bank details etc.  This is because the app takes your money by Direct Debit.  Don't worry: it will only ask for the money that you have chosen to give via the app – but it will collect it as a Direct Debit  It is not going to ask you for any regular giving! If they see an unusually large amount or a duplicate amount they will contact you to confirm that it was done intentionally and not in error. This additional info is only required once; in future weeks, you will only have to open the app, tap in the amount you want to give and touch the collection bag with the beacon in it with your phone. We have found that the beacons are sensitive from quite a distance so you may find it is activated before the collection actually reaches you.

Click or tap on the buttons below to download the Givt app...

More Help

 

There is a useful help section on the app; look for the ‘?’ in the top right of the screen. You can also find out more on their website.  And the people at Givt are very keen for feedback so they can make your giving experience as simple and easy as possible so do get in touch if you have any comments. Look out for the people with their phones out during the offertory and if you are stuck don’t hesitate to ask them! Just don’t forget to put your phone away after you’ve given…

 

Our treasurer, Helen, says, "We really like Givt because it is anonymous, secure and quick. You don’t require an internet connection, and most importantly it preserves the feeling of giving as opposed to other electronic set ups which can feel more like paying."

And you can give from anywhere!  Just select Holy Trinity & St Saviour's from the list in the app.
