Giving 

Thank you so much for your financial support. We could not fulfil our God-given vision without the generous offering of your time, talents and finance. We encourage regular members of the church to contribute to the vision of the church and the activities associated with it.

You can give in many different ways...

1) On Sundays. When the offering baskets are passed around during a service. You can make use of dedicated gift aid envelopes when doing this allowing us to benefit more from your gift.
2) Giving online. If you are able to commit to regular giving to the church, then would you consider setting up a standing order? If you already give to the church via this method, could you commit to reviewing your standing order on a regular basis, possibly once a year? 
3) One off donation or legacy. You can either use a cheque or use the bank information below to make your donation.

How to give

You can set up a standing order direct with your bank. Our bank details are:

NatWest Bank, Macclesfield Branch
Sort code : 01-05-41
Account Number : 01487914 

However you make a payment, would you consider whether you can 'gift aid' your giving?  If you are a UK tax payer, this can result in the church benefitting from an additional 25% of the value of your gift at no extra cost to you. A Gift Aid Declaration Form should be signed and returned to Eddie Jones, our gift aid co-ordinator at the Church address found at the bottom of this page. 

Thank you

Understanding our Finances 

As a church, we are funded by donations from members and friends of the church, as well as some income from renting our premises for hire. God has been very gracious and generous to us in the resources that we have and in the mission that we are called to be part of. However as good stewards of those resources we seek to ensure that we hold our income and expenditure in balance, fund the ministry areas that we are serving and look after the resources that we have been entrusted with. 

The graphs that follow show, as percentages, how our current income and expenditure for the church is comprised.
