How to watch on YouTube/Smart TV


You can use some of these in Growth Groups or alone:

Read through 1 Corinthians 16:1-4

  • Paul encourages the Christians in Corinth to set aside money for giving as a priority – in proportion to their income.
    • How can this apply to us today?
    • As Christians, how do you think we should decide how much to give to the church or to others?
    • What difference does giving make – and to who?
  • Do you think we should give more or less as a nation to needs around the world?
  • As a church, we give 10% of our income to other organisations – our Mission Partners – for long-term work, disaster appeals etc. (You can find out more about our main Mission Partners here)
    • How do you feel about this?
    • Do you think we should give more or less?
    • How else could you support our partners individually or as a group? Maybe practically, through prayer, giving or joining campaigns?

What can I pray for?

  • Pray for Christians in Afghanistan. You can read more from our Mission Partner, Open Doors at
    • It may help to try to imagine you are a Christian in that country. How would it feel? How would it affect your life? Now pray for the people there.
  • Pray for us as a church – that we would be cheerful and generous givers. Pray also that together we would handle our finances well – in the way that God wants us to.
  • Pray for those who will be starting or returning to school for a new year – pupils, teachers, other staff, governors and parents. Pray in particular for St James’ and St Luke’s schools and for our links with them.
