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).
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 :
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.
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.
All records of giving, which are kept to comply with law, are maintained confidentially.
If you have any questions or concerns about any aspect of giving and how your money is used by FBC, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
