We've just had our annual whole-church gift day, but it's not too late to give!
The gift day is a great opportunity to give generously into the valuable work of our church. If you would still like to give, you can bring your gift to your Sunday service this Sunday, place it in a giving envelope, mark it as for the Gift Day, and put the envelope in the collection. Alternatively you can find out about other ways to give on our Giving page.
Our annual gift day provides an opportunity for us to reflect on all the blessings we have, and to consider what we could give, over and above our regular giving, as a thanksgiving offering to God.
As a church, we have a heart to see both individual lives and whole communities transformed by the love of God. We're passionate about providing opportunities for more people to encounter Jesus, and passionate about serving our local communities in practical ways. We recognise that the more resources we have, the more we are able to engage with and serve our local communities through events, activities and projects.
Last year (2017), you generously gave an impressive £56,385 on our annual gift day, a huge 63.5% increase on the year before. If you haven't already, make sure you take a look at our New Community Network Annual Report to find out how your giving made a difference.
We're excited to see what a difference the money raised by our 2018 Gift Day will make in our local communities. We'll be sure to let you know the final amount donated as soon as we can!
Thank you so much for your generosity!
"You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. 'For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.' And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others." (2 Corinthians 9:7-8, NLT).
