Giving to God's work is part of our worship.
It costs about £2,000 each week to run activities and outreach at St Andrew's - and that's without essential major repairs e.g. to the roof and the boiler to keep us dry and warm!
Most of our income supports our work in our local community but there are also opportunities to give to overseas mission partners and each year 12 charities are selected as 'Charity of the month' from suggestions made by members of the congregation.
We also support the Norwich Foodbank - collections on the fourth Sunday of the month - and donated 1,243 kg of food last year.
How to give
Take time to pray and consider how much to give in response to all that God has done for you.
Give regularly, if you are able to, by Bank Standing Order or the weekly envelope scheme, which helps us to take God's mission for this church forward in a properly planned and responsible way.
Gift Aid will increase the value of all your gifts by 25%. If you are a UK taxpayer and have paid enough tax to cover all your charitable giving, please ask the Welcome Team or the Parishes Office for a leaflet.
'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. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.'
(2 Corinthians 9: 7-8)
