Our vision is to work for the renewal of London, and one of the ways we can play our part is by becoming a radically generous community.

Why we give

We believe that everything we have is a gift from God, and therefore giving is both an act of personal worship, and a way for us to reflect God’s generous heart for our city. In giving sacrificially, we not only contribute to the mission of our church, but we also help bring that vision to life through the way we live and the people we become.

In the Bible, the church is described as a family where everyone participates. To be fully engaged in the life of the church means contributing our time, our gifts and our money, but we know there may be seasons in life where giving financially is more challenging. This is not about creating a rule, but an invitation to each of us to “give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:6-8). We’d encourage you to prayerfully consider what you can contribute towards the mission of the church.

Where our giving goes

Your giving goes towards all of our different services, ensuring that they have what they need for mission, community and discipleship. It also goes towards running events and courses, hiring buildings, and paying our staff team.

We also partner with social action projects that provide food to those in need, a homeless shelter and support for refugees, as well as supporting organisations internationally that bring an end to poverty and injustice.
