Following Jesus involves giving our whole life to Him including our abilities, our time, and our money. As we do this we discover that God gives so much more to us. The Bible encourages Jesus’ followers to give a tenth of their income (a tithe) plus offerings to God.
In Malachi 3:8 it says: “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple…I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!”
Giving enables us to increase God’s work in the local area and across the world.

Giving To Specific Causes
Whilst for the majority of our church we encourage regular giving, if you’ve been impacted by a particular project or area of our work you can give specifically to that cause by emailing Tim Herriott, our Finance Director.
As well as receiving giving via standing order and bank transfers, our Sunday morning and Thursday afternoon services take up an offering as part of our worship to God. If you give by cheque via these offerings please make cheques payable to Rising Brook Baptist Church.
Giving as Part of our Journey Together
Please encourage one another to give their tithe to church, please talk about giving and generosity as you meet in small groups. There are some great resources available such as Stewardship’s generousID.
Making Giving Fun
Please look out for exciting new initiatives to make giving fun in the coming weeks and months… From text giving through to the old £5 notes campaign.
