Giving

The ministry of St Mary’s is supported by the generous gifts of its members. On this page, you’ll find details of how you can partner financially in this work. 

As followers of Jesus, we want to be generous with the resources God has given us. Paul reminds the Corinthian church that their generosity should come not because they are commanded to give or are pressured into it. Instead, they are to be reflect Christ’s generosity to us: 

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich. —2 Corinthians 8:9

We don’t give because of a command or a law but because we are joyfully generous—in response to the generosity of God. Paul says later:

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. —2 Corinthians 9:7

We would love you to join in supporting the ministry of St Mary’s financially. The work of St Mary’s is funded by two trusts—the St Mary’s PCC and the Christian Workers Trust (CWT). The St Mary’s PCC focuses on the day-to-day running of the church. The Christian Workers Trust funds staff engaged in ministry across many different areas. Giving to either trust goes to support the work of the church.
