We believe that giving is not just about money. However, for our church to function and to fulfil our vision aims we do need regular giving and donations as well as the other gifts and talents with which we have been richly blessed.

    See below for ways to give

    The Shore Community Church is wholly self-financing. This means that the money for running the church, for paying the bills & staff, maintaining the building & equipment, and buying the things we use comes solely from giving (the Offering) and a few other activities, such as renting out our rooms and occasional grants for projects from interested charities.

    Giving Financially

    Giving is an important part of discipleship, and we do believe in being a generous church, providing cheerfully to the needs around us. Put simply, giving is part of our community life together. We are praying hopefully for increased funds to be able to launch new projects in the near future. The Haven/Renew Wellbeing project and deepening our work with children & young people are our strategic priorities.

    If you are a UK taxpayer, Shore Community Church are able to reclaim a further 25% of the value of your gift.

    Ways to Give

    Online by direct debit or credit/debit card

Giving through a weekly or monthly direct debit means that we know that we are receiving regular amounts and enables us to financially plan ahead. The easiest way to give is by visiting our online giving page. You can set up a regular gift or one-off donation.

    In person with cheques and cash

    Donations can be placed in the basket when the offering is taken on Sunday morning or posted to the church office, c/o 73, Victoria Drive, Bognor, PO21 2TD . Cheques should be made payable to "Bognor Regis Baptist Church". Please seal posted items in an envelope marked 'Confidential'.

    In person by credit/debit card

    As we appreciate many of us don't carry cash, we have our new contactless tap+DONATE™ card machine as part of our offering during the service. One tap donates £5 towards our church and you can tap more than once if you wish to give more. You can also donate a specific amount using the chip & PIN option after the service. The contactless card machine will also be available for donations during the week, as it will accompany the offering baskets or will be stationed at the back of the church

    Bank transfer or standing order

    Giving by bank transfer or standing order is a great way to donate. This method doesn't incur any transaction charges, which means your whole donation goes directly to the church. You can set up your bank transfers and standing orders online though your bank.
