“You shall generously give to him, and your heart shall not be grieved when you give to him, because for this thing the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in all your undertakings.” Deuteronomy 15:10.
The cost of running a Church is high. But with God on our side we can trust that He will provide. The Bible teaches that 10% of our income should be given to the Church:
“Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me and will keep me on this journey that I take, and will give me food to eat and garments to wear, and I return to my father’s house in safety, then the Lord will be my God. ‘This stone, which I have set up as a pillar, will be God’s house, and of all that You give me I will surely give a tenth to You.’” Genesis 28:20-22
We encourage everyone who knows Jesus as their Lord and Saviour and considers this Church to be their home to practice this. There are opportunities to give at Sunday Worship every week.
Tax payers are encouraged to Gift Aid their offerings which enables us to recover an additional 25% from the inland revenue.
Copies of the 2018 accounts are available on request.
Gift Aid also greatly helps the Church. Peter Smith coordinates this.
