Member Spotlight

Here's what All Saints Church in New Haw, Surrey, said about supporting Boom Community Bank. "In line with the Archbishop of Canterbury’s appeal to churches to engage with issues of credit and debt, All Saints Church, New Haw, is delighted to invest a substantial sum into our local credit union.

By making the money available to Boom Credit Union, we hope to assist those members of our local community who are financially disadvantaged. The church sees this engagement with Boom Credit Union as sharing God's love, and we hope this will bring about tangible benefits to members of our community".

Kingston Pound CIC

"From the very start, we knew we wanted a local bank to hold the money that backs the Kingston Pound. It made perfect sense to team up with an organisation with shared values and positive community ethic."

Rev Helen Hancock, St Matthew's Church, Surbiton

"At St Matthew's Surbiton, we are delighted to be able to invest part of our PCC funds with Boom Credit Union. We agreed to do this in the knowledge that our money is entirely protected and easily accessible. We see it as part of our Christian witness to steward our resources wisely but also want to use them to help those in need, especially at this time. Boom Credit Union allowed us to meet all these objectives and to love our neighbour in an efficient and ethical way."

Shere Parish Council, Gomshall

"Shere Parish Council is pleased to support Boom Credit Union, given its aims and its focus on the needs of the community."

Paula, Chichester Tree Wardens 

"We didn’t have a bank account before Boom [Community Bank]. Opening the account was easy, even during the lockdown and with two signatories, it allows us to raise funds for our community projects. It’s easy to keep track of everything online and reassuring to have real people to talk with for any odd queries."

Treasurer North Sussex and East Surrey Trades Council

"We wanted to have an account with an organisation that was not interested in profits and had an ethical banking approach. Their helpful staff talked us through setting up our account, and the team dealt with any queries in a friendly and efficient manner. We thoroughly recommend Boom [Community Bank] to any business or organisation that needs a business account with an ethical face."

Dementia Tech Charity 

"Excellent customer professional service from the team. Cannot fault them. Highly recommend them. Thank you for your support."

Returns on your savings

The social impact of your investment carries greater significance than the potential returns on your savings. While we may distribute dividends, they are not guaranteed. If dividends are disbursed, they will be credited to your account in April for the preceding financial year. Our financial year spans from October to September.

Depositing funds

There are multiple ways that you can deposit funds.

  • Deposit a regular amount via standing order.
  • Make one-off bank transfers when it suits you.
  • Log in to online banking and use a debit card.
  • By cheque, made payable to Boom Community Bank, to 17 Liverpool Gardens, Worthing, BN11 1RY.

Withdrawing funds

You can request a withdrawal anytime by transferring to an external account using online banking. Register or log into your account here. Alternatively, if you require dual signature control, the signatures you require to authorise a withdrawal will be collected electronically.
