What we give financially
A minimum of 15% of our income goes to support mission and ministry projects in the UK and internationally. In 2015/16 we gave £135,000. Each Christmas we also ask the congregation to consider giving a Christmas gift to support specific projects. Find out more about the people, the projects and the organisations we support.
