At Encounter Church, we want to be a generous people. For us, that comes in three categories:
- Treasure – we give of our finances
- Time – we give our time to serve in the life of the church
- Talents – we use the gifts God has given us in acts of service
We encourage regular attendees to give financially to the church, as an act of worship. This is something that is found throughout the Bible. The Old Testament law says that we should give 10% of the “firstfruits” of our income. Although much of the Old Testament law no longer applies to Christians because of Jesus, we see this as a helpful guideline for giving.There are many different ways in which you can give….
While you’re attending a Sunday service, you can use our giving envelopes for cash, cheques or by card at your convenience and security or make a payment by debit/credit card at our Payment Point next to the Welcome Desk.
It’s a tremendous blessing to us as a church to have people supporting the ministry regularly and helps us to budget much more effectively. If you would like to set up a standing order or make a donation via online banking then the details are provided below.
