How we collect data and information about you

We collect personal information each time you are in contact with us. The most frequent way we collect data is through the ‘We Are So Glad You’re Here’ cards on a Sunday. Those cards are destroyed once your data has been inputted onto Mailchimp our email communications service and on Voodoo for texts.

We also collect data when you give online via the website or the CityHill London App. That data is held by our giving solution as they have secure and proven methods of protecting financial transactions and protecting data.
