The vast majority of  St. Stephen’s income is given voluntarily and generously by members of the church. Giving financially is something that the Bible understands to be a regular part of being a follower of Jesus, committed to the life and vision of a local church.

Such giving enables the different ministries of the church to continue and to grow and helps prevent money from getting an unhealthy grip on our lives. The Bible therefore understands financial giving to be a spiritual issue, not just a practical concern. We are a church that has a history of generous and joyful financial giving and this continues to be an essential part of the church’s future.

 

Regular Giving & One-Off Gifts

The most helpful way to give to St Stephen’s is through a standing order and, where possible, we encourage all giving to the church to be gift-aided so that tax can be claimed back. If you are a UK taxpayer we can claim basic rate tax back on your donation which increases your donation by 25%.
