Being a disciple of Christ involves investing in the work of the kingdom of God. This is lived out in various ways including praying, serving and giving. Financial giving is a spiritual discipline we are all called to; it allows the church to function and the Kingdom of God to grow.
How much should you give?
The New Testament does not give a mathematical sum to work out the answer to this. Rather it commands us to be generous (1Tim 6:17-19). In reality it can be difficult to work out exactly what this means, and of course everybody’s financial situation is different. A model given by the Old Testament is that of tithing: setting aside 10% of our income.
How can I give?
There are many ways to give, such as cash or cheque on a Sunday, a bank transfer, using the envelope giving scheme, or through a standing order. We encourage people to give via a regular standing order or a regular direct debit if they possibly can as this helps us budget most accurately for the year.

However you give, if you are a UK tax payer please make sure you have filled out a gift-aid declaration form as this allows us to claim back an extra 25% on your gift at no extra cost to you.
Consider giving us a one-off gift if you receive unexpected income or if arranging your will.
