Jesus’ gift of Eternal Life is free to all who accept it, and we want to make it available for free, which is why we don’t pass round a collection plate in our services. If you’re looking into Christianity or visiting us, please don’t feel under any obligation to give financially to the churches.
If you’re a committed Christian, then the Bible speaks of the privilege and blessing of financial giving. Many people who give regularly to the churches do this through a standing order to a specific PCC. Others prefer to use offering envelopes for their church. However you give, if you are a UK tax payer we ask that you consider completing a Gift Aid declaration so that the treasurer can reclaim 25p on every £1 you give.
The Christian Worker’s Trust (CWT) is a separate charity which employs the staff team apart from the Vicar. It is supported entirely through the generosity of the local church family.
If you have any questions about how to give, or the finances of the churches or CWT, please ask the Benefice Office for the contact details of the relevant Treasurer or speak to them directly.
