Investing In People And Enabling Lives To Be Transformed

The stewardship of our finances is a tremendous—and often overlooked—area of our lives where we can faithfully proclaim the Gospel. As people of faith, we should give faithfully and generously.

Members of St Andrew’s contribute to the life and work of the church in many different ways. While the information on this page relates to financial giving, other pages on this site explain the variety of ways you can get involved and contribute in other ways to St Andrew’s many ministries.

Here is a recent talk from Edward Hobbs on Giving and why it is such a great thing to do. Feel free to have a listen.

  • We give thankfully, because God is first generous towards us by His grace (Psalm 24:1-6, Rom 5:8).
  • We give financially, to rebel against the many temptations of money (Matt 6:24, 25-34).
  • We give sacrificially, because God develops our hearts as we do (Matt 25:19-21).
  • We give obediently, because we are managers and not owners (Matt 6:19-20).
  • We give faithfully, to participate in God’s work in our neighbourhoods and around the world (2 Cor 9:6-15).
  • We give joyfully, as those to whom much has been given (2 Cor 9:6-15).

Thank you to so many who give so generously.  You are investing in people and enabling their lives to be transformed. It is a privilege to give back to God what He has graciously given us. We commit to being good stewards of your generosity.

If you are new to St Andrew’s or been around for a while, you’ll know that we look to review our giving twice a year, in the spring and the autumn, seeking as a church family to resource our vision of “Revealing the heart of Jesus in the heart of our community.”

Whether you’re exploring faith, or you’re a new or longtime follower of Jesus, you’re invited to join in on the adventure of a generous life.

We have several options for you to choose from that make giving regularly to our church easy and secure. You can opt to give through a direct transfer from your bank, or if you prefer you can give at one of our Sunday services by using an envelope or cash and drop it in the offering plate which is normally found in the centre aisle at the back of the Church.

By setting up a direct debit standing order with your bank. Please complete [this form] (also available at our Sunday services) and return it to us; alternatively, set up a direct debit using these details and contact us to let us know [church office]:

If you are considering making a bequest to St Andrew’s or have already included a gift to St Andrew’s in your will and would like to talk to somebody or require more information, then please feel free to contact us.

This information will be treated in confidence and is not binding in any way.

If you pay Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the UK, we can claim back 25p on every £1 you donate through the Gift Aid scheme, recovered from the money you’ve paid in those taxes. To allow us to do this, please complete a Gift Aid declaration – available on the offering envelopes or at our Sunday services, or as part of [this form].

Higher rate UK tax payers: if you pay higher or additional rate tax, you may recover this through your own tax return. Alternatively, you may pass on this extra tax to St Andrew’s by giving via your employer’s payroll giving scheme.

If you are a UK higher rate (40 per cent) or additional rate (45 per cent) Income Tax payer and you give to St Andrew’s directly and allow us to reclaim the basic rate tax through Gift Aid then you may recover, through your tax return, the difference between the basic rate tax that St Andrew’s can recover and the higher or additional rate that you have paid.

If you gave via Payroll Giving then, because you are giving ‘pre-tax’, you are able to pass on the full benefit of your tax to St Andrew’s immediately.
