We think giving is a great idea because it blesses us as the giver and it blesses our church and our community. When we give we imitate the character of God who is the giver of every good thing. Giving is an act of worship – an outward response to the generosity that God has shown us. We give out of thankfulness to God and also to honour him and demonstrate faith in him as our provider.
Giving is like sowing seed. Over time God makes the effect grow far beyond what it appears to be when it is sown. As well as developing our faith and blessing others we find that we, the givers, are also being blessed. This church is entirely dependent on voluntary giving and it has a history of generosity with extraordinary things being accomplished as a result.
Of course money is not the only way we give. Giving time and skills is just as important and the church could not function without the many volunteers who give freely of their time and energy. However, money is essential for the church to be able to resource the work we are involved in here, and the many people and projects we support overseas.
Giving regularly helps us with the day to day running of the church and to plan ahead. For this reason we find that regular standing orders are the most helpful way of giving.
An alternative is to give by cheque. Please make cheques payable to “Finchampstead Baptist Church”.
You can also donate cash on Sunday mornings. Gift Aid envelopes are available on the welcome desk if you would like us to claim Gift Aid on your cash donation.
To set up a Standing Order you simply need to contact your bank, informing them how much you would like to give and the frequency of the payments (weekly/monthly/yearly). Here are the details you need to set up an Standing Order to FBC:
