Brand new contactless donation points have been installed in Bristol Cathedral.
According to verdict.co.uk, "cash accounted for 28.5% of transaction volume in the UK in 2018. In contrast, cards were responsible for 48.9% of transaction volume."
In this world, the Cathedral needs to facilitate visitors who wish to support the Cathedral, but find themselves unable to because of a lack of cash in their pocket. The new contactless points in the Cathedral, which offer donation points of £3, £5, or £10, are compatible with Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Apple Pay and Android Pay.
The Cathedral has stood in this place in one form or another for nearly 900 years. With the gift of giving, we can continue to offer worship to God through services, music, events, and as a place of prayer and sanctuary for another 900 years, and beyond.
