TITHES AND OFFERINGS
Much has been discussed about the issue of Tithing but we think
R.T Kendall says it best: ‘Tithing is the solution (that nobody
talks about) for the Discouraged and Paralysed Church!’
We believe that Tithing [10% of income] is the intended response to the call of Godly Stewardship of our Finances: after all everything we have belongs to God anyway. We want to be able to REACH MORE | DISCIPLE MORE | SERVE MORE. You can’t outgive God – God even asks us to test Him on this:-
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple.
If you do, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, I will open the windows of heaven for you.
I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in!
Try it! Put me to the test!
MALACHI 3: 10 [NLT]
We are an Independent Pentecostal Church, whose only source of income is that provided through the Tithes, Gifts and Offerings – we are not centrally supported by any Denomination, Charity or Government Funding.
We would ask you to take a look at what the Apostle Paul has to say to support Tithing in the New Testament – please read 2 Corinthians 8:1-15 to see the encouragement he gives us and the challenge he sets before us ALL.
With that all in mind and whether you are a regular member of the Church, or part of our on-line community there are many ways to give:
1 – In-Person – We have a secure letter box at Hope House for ‘Gift Deposits’
2 – Text Message – Please Text TLCGIFT (followed by 1-20) to 70450 to give £1 – £20 Eg: Text TLCGIFT 20 to 70450 to donate £20, Texts cost the cost of the donation plus one standard rate message If you want to give more than £20 please feel free to send multiple texts
3 – Debit Card – Please contact the office to make a payment over the phone or contactless
