"You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God."
- 2 Corinthians 9:11
God loves to give, and is our example of generosity. God also calls us to learn from him and to reflect his attributes to the world. We are called to be generous! We regularly preach on giving, and on honouring God with our finances, as the bible tells us that love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. We want to be God’s people, honouring him in every way.
As a church, we have significant operating costs, and everything we do relies on the generosity of those who give. We also give as a church each month to five mission partners: Kids Club Kampala, Dignity Freedom Network, Open Doors, Tearfund, and Redbridge Food Bank.
If you would like to give to the church, please consider a regular donation. This enables us to plan our finances effectively and also begins to shape our hearts to be generous givers, reflecting the heart of God. If you are a UK tax payer, please don't forget to fill in a Gift Aid form as it enables us to claim 25% on every gift that you make. Details on how to do this can be found below.
How Can I Give?

If you would like information on other giving methods, just talk to our planned giving officer Steve Frankish (firstname.lastname@example.org).
What About Arclight?
The best way to give to Project Arclight is via one of the two methods outlined above (i.e. bank transfer or card payment).
If donating via bank transfer, please include the letters ARC in addition to your name in the Payee Reference field. If donating via card payment please select Project Arclight from the Donation Purpose drop-down field.
You can also donate via check. Just pop it in an envelope marked Arclight and drop it into the post box at the back of church. You can also post it to Abi Todd, 185 Hermon Hill, London, E181QQ. Cheques should be made payable to "Holy Trinity Parochial Church Council".
Finally, if you would like to defer a donation or split a donation over multiple financial years for tax purposes then you can do so by completing the Pledge Form below. The church treasurer will be in touch around 7 days before any instalments are due to arrange payment. You can also use the same Pledge Form to notify us of a donation already made, or which you plan on making in the next seven days. However, this is totally optional as in almost all cases, we will be able to identify you from the payment transaction record.

Did you know Holy Trinity can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give if you donate through Gift Aid? Gift Aid can be applied to regular and one-off donations. To enable us to claim Gift Aid on your donation, please complete the gift aid form using the link below.
