“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver”
2 Corinthians 9:7
Besides giving their time and talents Members of the church and those who attend Sunday services tend to give financially on a regular basis.
On a Sunday there is no collection but there is an opportunity to make a donation on the collection plate when you attend.
There is also an envelope system for those who wish to pay by cash or cheque on a weekly basis.
The majority of people give financially on a monthly basis by direct debit. An added bonus for those who are tax payers is that any donation can also be gift aided which means the church can claim and extra 12.5% back on every donation.
All the money donated is used to support the work that is carried out in the Parish both within the life of the church and to support the vision of the church in the community and overseas.
In fact 10% of all the donations received by the church each year is given away to Christian Charities and causes on a local, national and worldwide basis. Some of these which we are currently supporting are…
- Basingstoke Chaplaincy
- Basingstoke Street Pastors
- Camrose Centre
- Money Lifeline
- URC Youth Cafe
If you would like to give on a regular basis or you would like to Gift Aid any donations please contact Penny Brown in the Church Office.
