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.
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 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.
