We believe that a vital part of belonging is helping to ‘pay the bills’. Making a regular financial contribution to the work of the local church is not only biblical but a very practical way of standing shoulder to shoulder with the whole church and demonstrating your commitment and support.
Where does the money go?
The work of St George’s, staff team and property, are financed from the contributions of its members. A full financial report, audited accounts and annual budget is published each year and made available at the Annual Church Meeting. The elected PCC scrutinises and authorises expenditure throughout the year.
In addition, 10% of money received by St George’s is given in charitable aid to overseas agencies, mission partners and partnerships.
Additional offerings are sometimes raised in the event of a disaster or a missionary endeavour, etc. These are taken in addition to regular giving.
Visitors to the church are under no obligation to give.
How can you give?
