Barrow Baptist Church receives no external funding, we are financially independent, and everything that we do is funded by our members and congregation. Our income is used to pay for the upkeep of the building, our Ministers and staff, and fund our various outreach projects and activities. The church is also very generous in supporting other Christian organisations and commits to give 15% away each year.
The Bible teaches that giving should be regular, proportional and generous. We encourage our members to prayerfully consider the financial blessings that God has given them and then to give a generous proportion of their income.
Ways to Give
Most members give through standing order payments and if they are tax payers they fill in a gift aid declaration.
Alternatively, we have an envelope scheme; some members choose to make their offering through the collection plate each Sunday.
It is also possible to give using our contactless payment system.
