Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
2 Corinthians 9:7


Giving to support our work

Thank you for taking time to consider how you can effectively support the work of ministry at St Mary’s, St James’ and All Saints.

The financial support for the ministry within the parish is largely dependent upon congregational giving, assisted by the Friends of All Saints Norton Mandeville, which funds the fabric costs of All Saints. We, therefore, ask all those who consider themselves to be members of any church within the parish to make a regular contribution towards the work of the parish.

Our expenditure as a parish supports our two key objectives of evangelism (reaching out with the Gospel message to the communities in which we are based) and edification (building up existing Christians in their faith). In addition, we give a proportion of our income to charities and missions working outside the parish. This proportion is currently 8% but we are aiming to increased it by 0.5% annually until it reaches 10%.

More detail about this year’s budget can be found in our Giving Pack. It is a great help to us in our planning and budgeting if people can commit to regular giving through one of the ways mentioned in the pack.
