WHY WE GIVE

Everything comes from God - the source and creator of all. Because God is generous, we believe we are also called to be generous with our lives and resources...and this includes our finances. God has entrusted us to respond wisely and faithfully in order to help our church and communities to become places of hope, restoration and life.

WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES 

  • Giving acknowledges God as the giver  (James 1:17).
  • Giving reflects our trust that God will provide, refusing to allow possessions to consume or define us (Matthew 6:19-24).
  • Giving allows us to participate in God’s work on earth (2 Corinthians 9:6-7).
  • Giving is obedience (Malachi 3:8-12).

Honour God with everything you own; give Him the first and best.
— Proverbs 3:9 The Message

HOW WE GIVE

We provide an opportunity to give tithes and offerings (cash/cheque) during every Sunday service. This allows the act of giving to be part of worship.

Other ways of giving include :
 
Standing Order
Many choose to give a regular amount by Standing Order. If you would like to do this, here are the details: 
Payable to:    Fleet Baptist Church
Sort Code:     40-52-40
Account No: 00010650
 
Alternatively, pick up a Standing Order Request Form from the Information Table or Church Foyer. 
 
Gift Aid
If you are a UK tax payer, we can reclaim the tax element of your gift, thereby increasing the total amount. Pick up a Gift Aid Declaration Form from the Information Table.
 
Confidentiality
All records of giving, which are kept to comply with law, are maintained confidentially.
