GIVE TO BETHANY CHURCH
Giving is a part of our worship to God. We give out of gratitude and love!
You can give your gift safely and securely online – this is one of the easiest ways to give to our church. Click the “Donate” button opposite to give online.
There are a number of other ways in which financial giving can happen at Bethany. These are set out below in brief. If you would like to take up one of these schemes or change the way in which you currently give, please speak to our Treasurer or call the Church Office.
Giving to Bethany Christian Centre is safe and secure through Pay Pal.
The Offering is taken during every Sunday morning service. It is very important to note that there is absolutely no requirement for anybody to give. Some people choose not to because they are participating in other giving schemes or because they are visitors. We are currently not using offering bags and instead there is a 'collection box' at the back of the church. In order to make your offering most tax efficient, we encourage folk to use the envelope scheme (see below) or gift-aid envelopes which are available from the back of the church.
Standing Order is our preferred method of giving because it is the most efficient for yourself and Bethany. Simply set up a standing order with your bank for the amount you wish to regularly give, specify the regularity and day on which the payment should be made and everything is arranged.
If you are a UK taxpayer, please also complete a gift-aid declaration which means we can make your financial gift tax efficient.
The Envelope Scheme
This is an organised scheme whereby you become a registered but anonymous giver. You will be issued with your own personal registration number. Simply place your giving (cash or cheque) into an envelope, write your number on the front, seal it, and place this into the Offering bag when it is circulated during morning worship. If you are a UK taxpayer, please also complete a gift-aid declaration which means we can make your financial gift tax efficient (see below). Please make cheques payable to ‘Bethany Christian Centre’.
One-Off Financial Donation
You may feel more comfortable making a one-off financial donation – this can either be discussed with one of our Leadership Team, our Treasurer or made anonymously.
You might be interested to know that you can make payments electronically from your bank account into the Bethany Christian Centre bank account.
Whichever way you choose, we are extremely grateful – why not ensure you Gift Aid it?
If you are a UK taxpayer please click here to download a Gift Aid form. By completing and returning this form, we can increase your financial gift by further 25% by reclaiming the tax from the Inland Revenue. This one declaration is effective for the whole time you are a UK taxpayer. If you stop paying tax you will need to notify us.
