Our giving sustains our beautiful church dedicated to worship, prayer and witness.
Our giving sustains parish clergy across the diocese.
Our giving sustains our parish ministry measured by every sermon preached, Eucharist celebrated, Baptism celebrated, sick person visited, bereaved family comforted, confirmation course run and person shown the love of Christ through our care, comfort and compassion.
Our giving sustains mission both here in Guernsey and overseas for people we will never meet but to whom we are able to give practical support through our ministry of giving.
To cultivate the grace of giving we need to think carefully about all we receive from God, consider our priorities, then prayerfully review our giving.
We are commanded to love God and our neighbour as ourselves.
This is a ministry for everyone – each according to your means. 2 Corinthians 8 v11
You may think that it is no great sacrifice to put someone you love first! But it requires a new set of priorities to put God and the ministry of his church first in our finances as we do in our weekly worship when we give the first day of the week to God.
Love is generous, love is kind and love is selfless – we see that in all God gives to us, how will we respond?
By giving generously when attending services
By joining the planned giving scheme and committing to a regular payment by standing order
By committing a part of our income to help to fund the ministry even when we are away
When planning your will, consider making a bequest to the church
Please think and pray about your response
