'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, NIV)
SECURE ONLINE GIVING
The Bible clearly teaches the principle of giving and money is just one demonstration of commitment to the work and ministry of the church to which we belong. We want to be a generous people, providing the church with the resources to do things well and to demonstrate God’s generosity outside this church in what we give away. We don’t teach a particular percentage as defined in the Old Testament (10% of gross income), but rather, with that as a guideline, we believe that 'each [person] should give what he has decided in [his/her] heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver' (2 Cor. 9:7). Below are links to our secure online giving facility. When you make a donation, you will have the option to set up a Paythru account that saves your details for any future giving. A minimum gift of £2 is required to use this service.
This facility is useful for one-off or occasional gifts but the most efficient way to give regularly is by standing order. This is the easiest way to give - you don't need to remember your wallet or purse each week and you can plan your giving prayerfully. To set up a standing order you will need to do this at your own bank, quoting the following details:
Account name: EFGA re Corby; Account number: 18774237; Sort code: 60-05-16
You can also use these details to make one-off gifts via a bank transfer. If you are registered for Gift Aid then please quote your name or Gift Aid number in the reference field. (Click below to download a standing order form to take to you bank.)
If you would like the convenience of giving using your smart phone, text CC123 to 64647 and follow the instructions displayed on your phone's screen. A minimum gift of £2 is required to use this service.
If you prefer to give using cash or cheque then you can put an offering in the baskets as they are passed round on Sunday. Cheques should be made payable to 'Hope Church, Corby'. We have an envelope system to help you plan your giving and assist us in claiming back tax on any donation through the Gift Aid scheme (click on the image above to complete a Gift Aid form. Please then return to Garryl Willis).
If you are a UK taxpayer and pay sufficient tax we would like to ask that you take advantage of the Gift Aid scheme, by which the church receives an additional 25% on your gift from the Inland Revenue. In order to participate in this scheme, simply select the 'Gift Aid' option on the text and online giving methods.
