GRACIOUS GOD, GENEROUS CHURCH
GENEROSITY IS THE HEART OF THINGS.
Generosity is in the heart of God. Generosity is what comes from the heart of God. God is gracious; he gives freely and expansively, extravagantly and with unlimited outpouring.
Our response therefore has to be GENEROSITY – an expansive, free, extravagant, unlimited response to the love and work and grace of God. Gracious God, generous Church.
YOU CAN GIVE WITHOUT LOVING, BUT YOU CAN’T LOVE WITHOUT GIVING. (Rev. Rick Warren)
Ministry, money, worship, love….we are called to be generous with it all, to give it away – because God can’t give us more till we have made space. LIKE A TEAPOT!!! – when you’re full, you’re full. God will only fill and re-fill you when you start to pour out.
2 Cor. 9 v7 – 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.
How can I give financially to the work at Holy Trinity Combe Down?
Apart from our clergy stipends, everything we do is funded by the church family. The most helpful way to give financially is through our planned giving scheme.
The best way to give to Holy Trinity is by setting up a regular payment to the church bank. You can do this by
• setting up a Standing Order from your own bank
• setting up a Standing Order through a charity agency e.g. CAF or Stewardship
