The point is this...

6  whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
7  Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
8  And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.

2 Corinthians 9: 6-8

The work of our church is entirely funded by the congregation.

If you are a regular member of our churches please consider prayerfully your contribution to support God’s ministry in this parish and within our community. We encourage church members to make a regular and prayerful commitment to support the work of this Church through a weekly or monthly gift, a one-off gift or an occasional gift. Regular gifts are particularly useful for the church as this allows us to plan our budget through the year.

Parish Giving Scheme

We recommend that church members use the Parish Giving Scheme for regular giving, which is a convenient and easy way to manage your giving to the church. If you are a taxpayer you can sign a Gift Aid declaration through the Parish Giving Scheme which allows the church to reclaim basic rate tax on all donations you make.
