As a church, we want to grow in our love for God and our love for others. An important way of expressing our love as Christians is through giving. Through it, we can make a big difference in our church, local community and to those in need around the world!
We can give in many different ways – including our time and money. Some are able to give more of one than the other, but both are essential for us to fulfil God’s calling to us as individuals and as a church.
Financially, the Bible encourages us to give generously and cheerfully from what we have, with a benchmark of 10% of income. For some this is difficult, whilst others are able to give much more. Some give all of their giving to this church – others split it with other organisations. Paul encourages each of us to consider our own consciences and circumstances and to give cheerfully (2 Cor 9:6-11).
