We are incredibly thankful for all of those who give generously of their time, money, skills and energy to the work and ministry of St Thomas with St Stephen. In order to fulfil the mission and ministry that we believe God has called us to we rely on the generosity of individuals. We ask that if you consider St Thomas with St Stephen to be your home then please prayerfully consider at what level you can contribute financially to the life of the church.
Why do we give?
We give to express our gratitude to God who has been so generous to us, to play our part in funding the work of the church (the money comes from nowhere else), and as an expression of trust in God to provide for all our needs.
How do we give?
We give generously and cheerfully and realistically (see 2 Corinthians 8 and 9). We can also give regularly (though standing orders or the envelope scheme) or as a one-off lump sum. Most of all we are encouraged to give prayerfully.
