Without generous giving by our congregation Life Church wouldn’t exist. We’re so thankful for the generosity of those who give to Life Church, providing the church with the resources to do things well and to demonstrate God’s love outside this church in practical ways.
The bible teaches us about giving and money is just one demonstration among others, but a very important one. Having the finances available means we can continue to bless the community generously and fund the many projects, events and courses we run or support as well as the normal day-to-day running of the church.
There are 4 ways to give:
1. Give regularly by Standing Order
Most of our income comes through monthly standing orders. This helps us budget and is a simple way for you to maintain your regular giving.
To set up a standing order to Life Church, simply log in to your online banking or visit your local bank branch. All you’ll need are our bank account details (see below).
Once you’ve set up or amended your standing order, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know the details so we can identify your gift.
Account Number: 30855968
Sort Code: 30-84-79
2. Give on a Sunday via the offering bowls
You can give via cash, cheque or card during the Sunday services. If you’re a regular giver then you can use our numbered envelope system to identify your gift. If you’re not a regular giver but would still like to identify your gift (to add gift aid) then grab an envelope from the Information Desk on your way in. The envelope has a section for your name and will also allow you to give your permission for us to claim Gift Aid where possible. Please make cheques payable to ‘Life Church (Europe)‘.
3. Give a one off donation online
You can make a one-off gift to Life Church using your credit or debit card via Just Giving. You can do this through the box below or by downloading the Just Giving app and searching for ‘Life Church’.
(For regular donations (monthly tithing) or donations over £500 please consider a standing order or a BACS transfer using the details above.)
4. Give via Text Message
If you’d like to give a one off gift then it’s as simple as sending a text message and the money is added to your monthly phone bill or taken out of your phone credit. Just send the following message to 70700 to give £10 to the Life Church General Giving Fund.
