Membership

Membership of The Danish Church in London

In Denmark the church is publically funded through taxes, but The Danish Church in London exists only thanks to generous donations from its congregation and supporters. By becoming a member you help preserving the church, ensuring that in future the church will still be a cultural and social meeting place as well as a church for yourself, your family and the other approximately 50,000 Danes in Greater London. The membership rate is significantly lower than the church tax contribution in Denmark. 

We hope that you and your family have enjoyed visiting the church and taking part in some of our many activities, and that you will want to become a member.

Are you a UK tax payer?

If you pay taxes in the UK and you support The Danish Church in London, you can increase your support by 25% at no additional cost to you. Do so by completing this Gift Aid declaration.

The church is a registered UK charity, and with your permission the church can receive Gift Aid from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). This will increase the value of your contribution by 25%. This applies to both membership fees and donations, as long as your donation is not anonymous. For example the value of a family membership will increase by 27 per year. You can read more about the Gift Aid scheme on the HMRC website.
