Giving in Grace is a brief biblical look at Christian giving. On the church website debdenchurch.org.uk you will find two sermons preached in church in February encouraging us all to review our Christian Giving. This was before the coronavirus pandemic but is particularly timely now as with church services suspended our service collections are no longer available. Giving in Grace reminds us to see we have everything through God’s grace. Our response therefore should be thoughtful, purposeful and sacrificial as part of our worship. Committing to giving regularly is part of this, and although contributing to the collection plate is a legitimate and valued response, now is a good time to consider regularly giving through a bank standing order. It does not rely on church attendance and ensures your intention of giving to the mission and ministry of the church is not neglected.
May I encourage you to listen to the sermons, perhaps for a second time if you were at church in February, and, if you are able and willing, to set up a regular means of bank payment to the church. Remember, Gift Aid your donation if you are a taxpayer as we get an extra 25p for every pound given. Do please get in touch for details how to do this. Many thanks for your support.
