We have a responsibility to be good stewards of the financial resources God gives us. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 9:7 that we should decide in our hearts what to give, that we should give without compulsion and cheerfully. It currently costs nearly £250k annually to run St Luke’s; if you wish to contribute to the work and mission of St Luke’s we would be delighted for you to setup a regular standing order.

Similarly if you wish to make a one-off donation to the church’s general fund or for a particular purpose then please use the bank details above and indicate in the reference field the purpose for which you want the gift to be used.
You can add to your giving with Gift Aid
If you are a UK tax payer you can gift aid your giving by completing the Gift Aid section on the standing order mandate form. This allows St Luke’s to claim an additional 25p for every £1 you give from the Government.
Donate to our Thanksgiving Fund
Alternatively you may want to give to our Thanksgiving Fund. The Thanksgiving Fund aims to give away 10% of the cost of building our new church in thanksgiving to God. The money raised is used to fund projects such as funding an AIDS clinic in India, a maternity unit in Malawi, and others around the world.
