Giving

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.  2 Corinthians 9:6

Time, Skills and Talents: We maintain a list of the Time, Skills & Talents which members of the congregation are prepared to offer. Key areas requiring help include:

  • Worship
  • Mission
  • Prayer
  • Pastoral Care
  • Interest groups (including faith based)
  • Communication
  • Property and Finance

If you feel that you are able to help in some way, please contact Di Hunt, details below. This information will then be passed to the leader of the appropriate group and they will contact you to discuss further, without any commitment at this stage.

Planned Giving: To support our general church ministry and mission, it's vital that we have income to cover our costs in advance. This is the aim behind Planned Giving, where donations are made monthly by Direct Debit.

This is the preferred and most cost-effective method of giving, but we can offer other methods in case of need and would be happy to discuss these with you.

If you are a taxpayer then by using Gift Aid we will be able to recover an additional 25p for every £1 you give.

To join Planned Giving, or to discuss generally, please do not hesitate to contact Paul Emmerson (details below). All information regarding your giving will be treated in the strictest confidence.

Thank you.
