Why Do We Give?
As a church family we want to express our love and commitment to God and His people through generous giving.
It is a joy for us to sow into God’s Kingdom to see lives changed and restored. The Bible encourages us to give cheerfully and voluntarily, not because we are forced to but out of a place of gratitude to God.
In the Old Testament people gave according to the tithe. Under the New Covenant of grace we are empowered to go beyond the tithe and to be generous in our giving. At Forest Town Church we believe that giving is a choice to honour God and may involve sacrificing on other things at times to see God’s kingdom come. We give, trusting those God has appointed to be stewards of the Gospel in administering resources wisely in our church.
All the money that’s given is administered by our trustees and elders and is used to facilitate church ministry and outreach missions locally and abroad. All finances are annually reviewed by companies house and the charity’s commission.
