The Grace of Giving
Be Joyful – Be Generous
Managing our money is stressful – how much to spend, what to save, who to give to? It is important to view our finances through God’s eyes. When we see His plan, we can then put our faith into action as we give our money joyfully and graciously.
Giving is a response to the grace that God extends to us. While we can never match the extent of God’s giving, we should seek to respond to the grace God has given us through our actions and our attitudes. “You know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ; though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor.” 2 Corinthians 8:9
The vision of our local church is to share the Good News of Jesus with our community, to reach out to a world in need and to make disciples of all nations. We can all play our part in this vision by giving of our time and talents. But we can also impact the vision by giving our money. When more is given, more is possible. “Much is required from the person to whom much is given; much more is required from the person to whom much more is given.” Luke 12:48
Over 2000 verses in the Bible talk about money, wealth and possessions and around a third of Jesus’ parables relate to it. This is a vital a part of being a disciple of Jesus. Our giving should be planned and regular, in addition to one-off projects at specific times of need. Our giving should be proportionate to our resources. The Old Testament teaches the principle of tithing and this is a good starting base for New Testament generosity. Tithing simply means giving at least 10% of our income to the kingdom of God. 
“Giving should be a priority, regular and sustained – set something aside for God on the FIrst day of each week.” 1 Corinthians 16:2

Coronavirus Provisions

The Coronavirus crisis and the impact of the social distancing restrictions mean that we are not always able to meet as a congregation and not able to physically offer our financial gifts to the Lord as part of our Sunday worship. You might find it beneficial in the meantime to make use of the Direct Debit or Internet Banking provisions and that would certainly help the congregation meet its ongoing financial commitments. 

Alternatively you may prefer to keep a note of what you intended to give during this period and offer it to the Lord when we are able to meet again. 


Standing Orders and Internet Banking

Many people find it helpful to give their financial offering to the Lord by Standing Order or Internet Banking.

If you would like to do this please give the bank your name, and your FWO number if you have one. 

It helps us if you set your Standing Order to pay on a date before the 24th of the month. If you need any help please use the contact button at the bottom to email our Treasurer Graham Todd.
