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, on a weekly basis, how our current income and expenditure for the church is comprised.
At the moment our income does not cover our regular spending. The net weekly cost of running the church per member is approximately £8.60.
- 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, could you commit to reviewing your standing order on a regular basis - at least once a year?
How to give
You can set up a standing order direct with your bank. Our bank details are:
NatWest Bank, Bramhall Branch
Sort code : 01-01-14
Account Number : 83531688
If you would prefer, a standing order mandate can be found here.
However you set up your standing order, 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. The gift aid declaration should be signed and returned to Paul Langton, our gift aid co-ordinator, via the church pigeon holes. The form can be found here.
Sacrificial giving has enabled the church to do God's work throughout its life, and will continue to do so. The only way that we can continue to do God's work in Bramhall is through the generous gifting of money and time, and we are so grateful to all who give freely. Thank you!
