"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 25% 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...

Locally

Nationally

Worldwide

The Parish Giving Scheme looks really good but I can’t commit to giving the same amount each month – help!

If this applies to you then you may like to consider using the Yellow Envelope scheme the church runs instead. 

 

This gives you the flexibility of giving as much or as little as you can, as and when you can. 

 

We can provide you with a supply of yellow envelopes which will have your unique reference number written on them, all you have to do is pop one into the collection plate on a Sunday morning anytime you are in church. 

 

If you are a UK tax payer we can also reclaim the gift aid on your giving if you complete a Gift Aid Declaration Form which we can provide you with.

If you would like to give on a regular basis or you would like to Gift Aid any donations please contact us
