Giving at ABC

Giving ourselves

It is a privilege to serve the Lord. Our labour in the Lord is never in vain. We believe in the body ministry of the whole church working together as one team so if you would like to help out at church, whether on a regular or occasional basis, we would love to hear from you. Examples might include welcome, worship, catering, audio-visual, design or media, youth and children's groups (need to be CRB checked), pastoral, ministry team, DIY or gardening. If you any ideas or a particular skill to be given in service for the kingdom of God then please let us know. We look forward to hearing from you.

Giving financially

We thank God for all the giving that goes on at ABC, seen and unseen. We believe that not only is giving a principle that lies at the heart of Christian discipleship but that it is a privilege to give. In line with the teaching of Scripture we give ourselves first to the Lord and in the same way our giving financially is first to the Lord and in the local church.

We believe that the local church at ABC is a family in covenant relationship and that the principle of giving is best worked out first of all here at home. In other words the place where our giving finds reality is in the local church community to which we belong. Here at ABC we believe that God wants us to give as the Lord directs us and to do so to the best of our ability.

There are several ways you can give financially:

Use the giving envelopes. See our treasurer.
Using the commitment form, also from our treasurer. If you are UK tax payer, gift Aid is a  good way of increasing the value of your gift at no additional cost to yourself.
Giving into the offering at the Sunday worship services.

Giving financially to God's work not only blesses others but will also greatly bless you. This is an important principle in the life of the kingdom of God. 'Give and it shall be given to you, pressed down, shaken together and overflowing.'
