Christian Stewardship - Giving to the Church

Christian Stewardship and Financial Giving

Giving is part of our worship and an outworking of our discipleship. The Scriptures are clear that the way we use our money matters and is a means by which we are called to bless others. Most of the outgoings go towards supporting the parish share and most of the income comes from the direct giving of members of the church family. We invite you to play your part by making either a regular or one-off gift towards the Church’s mission and work. There are many ways to make your gift, such as standing order, bank transfer, card reader, cheques or cash. And if you are a tax payer you can complete a gift aid declaration.

Christian Stewardship - Time and Talents
 
There are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit.  There are varieties of service, but the same Lord.  There are many forms of work, but all of them, in all men, are the work of the same God.  In each of us the Spirit is manifested in one particular way, for some useful purpose.’
1 Corinthians 12:4-7

The Stewardship Committee invites you to reflect on your own gifts and talents in the service of God and his Church.  Whatever your ability or interest, we would like to hear from you.
