GIVING OFFERINGS BY BANK TRANSFER
Stanborough Park Church
“You should each give, then, as you have decided, not with regret or out of a sense of duty; for God loves the one who gives gladly. And God is able to give you more than you need so that you will always have all you need for yourselves and more than enough for every good cause” 2 Corinthians 9:7-8 Good News Translation
The general offerings (church budget offerings) that you give to Stanborough Park Church are used to fund the various programmes that are run by the Church (eg Messy Church, Pathfinders, Soup Run, Welfare, Children’s Sabbath Schools etc and towards the costs of maintaining the Church premises. In addition specific offerings may be given. For example - to pay off the development loan or to fund the work that the One Vision Project is doing to support those affected by Covid-19 or the Good Samaritan Fund.
The Church continues to need maintenance, cleaning, heating and lighting etc. In the hope that the various programmes will be able to resume in the not too distant future the Church needs your offerings. In a normal year the Church receives significant income from the letting of the Stanborough Centre. As the Centre has been closed for much of the year this will be very significantly reduced in 2020.
Please remember your Church.
If you are giving under the Gift Aid scheme please quote your Gift Aid number in the reference on your transfer and/or in the email that you send to firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of your transfer.
If we have your email address then you will be sent an electronic receipt.
