Giving is part of our worship. Giving is good for us in that it breeds generosity and contentment in our hearts and souls.
Giving to Hope is an investment into all that we do now and seek to do in the future.
Everything belongs to God and he calls us to steward well what is on loan to us.
There is no rule on how much we as Christians should give. But it is good to remember Jesus words it is better to give than receive.
The simplest way for us to receive any gifts is via bank transfer:
Name: Hope Church Ferndown
Sort Code: 40-52-40
Account no: 00018179
Ref: if you wish to leave one please do
We can receive cash or cheque on a Sunday morning or evening when a collection box is made available for people to put their gifts in. We do not have a collection as part of any of our services. If paying by cheque then please make it payable to ‘Hope Church Ferndown’
If you’re a UK tax payer at the basic rate or higher we can claim Gift Aid on your behalf. This is an extra 25p from HMRC for every £1 you give. There is no lower limit on the amount you can give, but the gift needs to be traced back to the giver.
So if this is you then please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a ‘Gift Aid Declaration’.
