GIVING

“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”

2 Corinthians 9:7

GIVING

The Bible tells us that all everything we have comes to us as a gift from God. By giving to the work of His church we show our gratitude to Him.

Our giving also maintains the life of the church, and facilitates the impact of Jesus in our community, our country and our world.

The money that is given enables the church to carry out its activities. Part goes to the diocese as our “parish share” which effectively funds the salaries and training of the clergy.

The remainder pays for staff costs and the maintenance of the building, our church services and the activities that we run for members of the church and for the wider community. We also support Mission Partners in furthering the spread of the Gospel

HOW TO GIVE?

If you are already giving to Emmanuel, thank you. Your gifts are greatly valued. If you are considering making a contribution to our finances, there are several ways in which you can do this:

There is a collection plate at all our services, and if this is your preferred way of giving, we can provide you with envelopes in which to place your gift and which make our recovery of Gift Aid easier.

The most convenient way – for us and perhaps also for you – is by standing order. This helps us to predict our future income and to plan our expenditure appropriately.

A one-off donation can also be made a bank transfer using the bank details on the standing order form.

GIFT AID

If you are a UK taxpayer, we can claim an extra 25p from HMRC for every £1 you give, whether regular or one off.

To allow us to do this you will need to complete a Gift Aid declaration.

Please email our Administrator, Gill, on admin@emmanuelchurchbath.org if you need help with setting up your giving or Gift Aid.

Giving and Covid-19

At times during the ongoing pandemic some of us may find ourselves in financial uncertainty, hardship or are simply ‘less well off’.   We recognise that this may impact our giving, but it is good for us to show our gratitude to God, in however large or small a way that may feel to us.

In addition, the actual act of giving is difficult for those whose preferred method of giving is via the plate in a church service. 

In that situation there are two ways that you can continue to give to the ministry of the church:

  1. You could set up a standing order via your bank as mentioned above; or
  2. You could set aside the amount that you would regularly give, so that when we can meet as church again you can give that full offering into the plate as usual. If you choose that, then we strongly that the money is kept in a savings account/bank account and not as cash at home
