We give because God first gave to us…
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
We have an awesome God!! Everything we have is a part of God’s love and care for us in His world, we are only looking after what he has given to us. In response we want to live as generous people, giving our time, energy and resources to bring blessing to other people.
Those of us who consider NLCC to be our family are encouraged to give and help to provide for the financial needs of the church. This helps ensure that New Life Community Church can operate as a local church supporting employees, outreach events such as Alpha, wider local community projects, plus supporting the wider mission of the church across the world. See links below on ways to give:
We don’t take up weekly church offerings and leave it up to you to decide how you want to give in a way that suits you, cash, cheque or regular standing order directly from your bank into the church bank account. In each case you can find out how to go about this by speaking to one of the church elders or the church treasurer. If you are a UK income tax payer we would encourage you to consider register with us to Gift Aid your contributions.
Gift Aid… How does it work?
Basically, for every £1 you give to New Life Community Church, we can claim an additional 25p from the Inland Revenue. Which also means for every £100, the church can get £25 extra from the government at no cost to you – effectively the basic rate tax that you’ve paid on your earnings back to the church!
Please note that any cash gifts need to be put in a New Life Community Church Gift envelope marked with your name and address so that we can identify you as the giver.
What next… If you are a UK Tax payer, please complete & return this form to the NLCC treasurer.
