Giving

There are a number of ways in which financial giving can happen at CBC. These are set out below in brief.  If you would like to take up one of these schemes or change the way in which you currently give, please speak to our Treasurer, Jerry Ponsford.

The Offering
The Offering is taken during every Sunday morning service. It is very important to note that there is absolutely no requirement for anybody to give. Many allow the offering bags to pass them by because they are participating in other giving schemes or because they are visitors. In order to make your offering most tax efficient, we encourage folk to use the envelope scheme (see below) or gift-aid envelopes which are available from the back of the church or Stewards.

Standing Order
Standing Order is our preferred method of giving because it is the most efficient for yourself and CBC. Simply set up a standing order with your bank for the amount you wish to regularly give, specify the regularity and day on which the payment should be made and everything is arranged.

Click here to download a Standing Order form or set up your Standing Order electronically using the details below (see Bank Transfer section).

If you are a UK tax payer, please also complete a gift-aid declaration which means we can make your financial gift tax efficient (see below). Click here to download a Gift Aid form.

The Envelope Scheme
This is an organised scheme where by you become a registered but anonymous giver. You will be issued with a supply of small envelopes with your own personal registration number printed on it. Simply place your giving (cash or cheque) into the envelope, seal it, and place this into the Offering bag when it is circulated during morning worship. If you are a UK tax payer, please also complete a gift-aid declaration which means we can make your financial gift tax efficient (see below). Please make cheques payable to 'Christchurch Baptist Church'.

Text Message Giving
You can give via text message by simply texting "CCBC44" followed by the amount you wish (e.g. CCBC44 £10) to 70070.  You will receive a text message receipt, and the chance to add Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer.

One-Off Financial Donation
You may feel more comfortable making a one-off financial donation - this can either be discussed with one of our Leadership Team, our Treasurer or made anonymously.

Legacy - Remembering Christchurch Baptist Church In Your Will
Leaving a legacy is a truly fantastic way of providing financial help to Christchurch Baptist Church's mission and ministry. If this is something which you are contemplating, may we thank you greatly, in advance!

Bank Transfer
You might be interested to know that you can make payments electronically from your bank account into the Christchurch Baptist Church bank account. The information you require to set this up online is:

Bank: Lloyds Bank
Sort Code: 30-92-02
Account Number: 00079054

Gift Aid
Whichever way you choose, we are extremely grateful - why not ensure you Gift Aid it?

If you are a UK tax payer please click here to download a Gift Aid form. By completing and returning this form, we can increase your financial gift by further 25% by reclaiming the tax from the Inland Revenue. This one declaration is effective for the whole time you are a UK tax payer. If you stop paying tax you will need to notify us.

"How Much Should I Give...?"
If you are struggling to know how much to give, you can listen to Chris Brockway's most recent sermon, 'When Giving Is Really Taking..'  In this message, Chris unpacks 4 really helpful principles which will inspire us to ensure that our giving is in line with God's will for our lives.
