Giving


Giving financially is part of the radical lifestyle which comes from following Jesus and being committed to His Church. With this being said, Christian Life Church is funded entirely through the generosity of its members - you! Without this funding we would be unable to extend the vision that God has for mission and ministry in us and through us. 

If you would like a more in depth explanation about giving here at Christian Life Centre, we have a little leaflet that seeks to pain a Biblical picture of giving. 

 

Gift aid

Currently, when a financial gift is given to a registered charity, the government allows the charity to claim back the tax that has already been paid on that gift. In effect, this means that if you give £10 using Gift Aid, it’s worth £12.50 to Christian Life Church. This doesn’t happen automatically, you have to opt in to the Gift Aid scheme. To be able to claim Gift Aid, you must pay at least the equal amount of tax, to the amount of tax relief the church claims back on your behalf in the current financial year. To join the scheme, please complete and return a Gift Aid form that can be downloaded from the link below.  Once this has been received, you will then be given a number and we will be able to claim Gift Aid on all gifts given under that number. However, it is important that you always put your offerings in an envelope clearly marked with your unique number. If you give by standing order, please make sure the number is part of the description that appears on our statement.
