“Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap…” (Luke 6:38) The words of Jesus our Lord.
Financial giving is part of our worship. It was an important subject for Jesus. In fact, he talked more about money than almost any other issue. We cannot “out-give” Jesus or earn His love but we demonstrate our devotion and contribute to the building of His Church by giving of ourselves, including our time and money. He does not command us to give a specific amount, but encourages us to give generously, without hesitation and cheerfully to God and others! Many of our givers set up a regular payment which helps them and us with budgeting.
We would also encourage all givers who are UK tax payers to fill in a Gift Aid form, that would enable the church to receive 25p from the government for every £1 they give. Meaning, your £1 offering is then £1.25 or your £50 offering is then £62.50. It doesn’t cost you extra, but it helps the church financially.
Download a Gift Aid Form to print, fill in and return. This could be by post, email a scanned PDF or a phone camera photo.
