Wokingham Baptist Church is a financially independent organisation. We raise most of our income from regular giving by the church family; there isn't a central organisation to give us money or staff!
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
How to give
Our Sunday services include an offering when people can put their gifts into an collection bag that is passed round.
Many people choose to give through a regular giving scheme, which helps the church plan and budget for its spending. There are two ways of doing this:
- By standing order directly into the church bank account, using the bank details below.
- Using weekly or monthly offering envelopes. These are available from our gift aid secretary who can be contacted through the church office.
We usually hold a gift day once a year for one-off gifts and you can, of course, make a one-off gift at any time.
If you are a UK tax payer, please consider using gift aid so that the church, as a charity, can claim back from the government 25p of the tax you paid for every £1 you give. To do this, fill in the gift aid declaration form and return it to our gift aid secretary who can be contacted through the church office.
