Giving Financially

Our financial giving is an important part of our worship of God, a response to all His goodness and guided by the Bible. 

‘Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver’

2 Corinthians 9:7

Your giving enables Union Baptist Church to fullfill its vision To see High Wycombe transformed by God through His loving, serving and worshipping church. Please prayfully seek God as you consider your giving.

Gift Aid

Through gift aid we are able to reclaim from HMRC an amount equivalent to the income tax an individual (who must be an eligible UK taxpayer) has paid on the donation given. This represents a significant income for the church and is a simple sign-up process using Gift Aid Declaration form which are also avaliable from the church office

 

 

Legacies and Stewardship

The church has been blessed by members who have left legacies in their wills. You may like to consider making a provision in your will. Some members find the use of Stewardship accounts can help them to organise all their charitable giving. Further information can be found at https://www.stewardship.org.uk/
