We believe God is overwhelmingly generous.
We see his generosity in his lavish creation, his eternal love, his saving grace and his abundant provision. Part of God’s plan for us is to become more like Jesus and he was the most generous person who has ever lived.
Part of becoming a more generous person is sharing in our responsibility in looking after our church.
There are many costs in running a modern church; salaries, cleaning, maintenance, heating, lighting, insurance and so on. On top of all that we believe that it is our responsibility to look after our missionaries and those in our church family who have run into hard times.
The only way that we can effectively manage our finances is if everyone shares in those costs. At the end of every service we will take up a freewill offering from the congregation; we hope you can understand why we do that. If you are merely visiting us from another church or just in the process of deciding what church is for you, then please feel free to let the basket pass you by, we’re just glad you’ve come along and that’s what its important.
For those people who want to give on a regular basis we would encourage you to give by standing order; it greatly streamlines our process. Additionally, for those who are in regular work and pay tax,
you can join our Gift Aid Scheme which means the Tax Man will give an additional 25% at no expense to you.
Finally, thank you for everyone who gives to our church.... we simply couldn’t do what we do without you!!
