Supporting our church’s mission and ministry

Churches will be able to meet the challenges which the pandemic has brought only if they meet the financial challenges of this time. 

There are lots of ways to play your part in meeting the financial costs of your church’s ministry and mission. Please consider what options are best for you.

Giving 

Everything that happens through St Saviour’s involves people giving their time and their money.

It costs around £3,000 per week to fund our Church’s work. We are entirely self-funding and receive no central government support. So every one of us has an important part to play in enabling the Church to grow and flourish and to make a real difference in the lives of others.

Being generous with our money is part of our lives as disciples. By giving money away, we give thanks to God for all that He has given to us, and we say that He is more important to us than money.
