Charity: Bow Church
Charity number: 1130902
Description: St Mary and Holy Trinity - or Bow Church as it is commonly known - is a thriving Church of England parish in the East End of London. Our church lies in the middle of Bow Road before the Stratford fly-over. People have been worshipping there for seven centuries and its long and continuous heritage is something we celebrate. But such history also brings a responsibility to ensure that the church building is maintained and restored to a state whereby our vision can be realised - so that the church can be both a sanctuary: a quiet place for reflection, worship and fellowship, bringing people closer to God and to each other; and - due to its unique location - a landmark at the centre of Bow, visible, drawing people in and reaching out to the community. Last year we celebrated the competion of restoration works to our tower and iconic clock - with much thanks to grant funding and support from individuals like you. Damp continues to be a problem, as is accessibility with a church located in the middle of a busy road and as old as it is. We are due shortly to start vital works to install new pipes, carry out high level repairs and install an accessible toilet. The work goes on - not just looking after our church building but also also in reaching out to and engaging with the people of Bow. We would gladly welcome your support!

You can support any of the 200,000 UK-registered charities.
Our charities range from big national charities to local schools, churches and social groups.
The donation amount varies from store to store. Most of the time you raise a percentage of what you spend - between 1% and 10% - whilst sometimes it's a fixed amount.
With some stores there are different rates or restrictions depending on what you buy - you can see more information on each store's page on our website.
Yes! You don't pay anything extra for your shopping, the donation is made at no extra cost to you.
It's also completely free for your charity. There are no joining or payment fees, so 100% of the donation will reach the charity.
We pay charities once a month by BACS via our payment partner, The Online Foundation.
You can view the status of every donation within your account. A donation will typically move from 'pending' to 'approved' to 'paid' over the course of a few months.
As a "thank you" for sending them sales and customers, our stores pay us a commission.
We use this commission to make a donation to your chosen charity.
We donate 50% of the commission we receive, with the other 50% used to fund the on-going development of Give as you Live Online, which is free to all charities and users.
All donation amounts we display represent the amount the charity will receive - a 5% donation means a 5% donation!
