Regular Giving

This page is here because it seeks to answer questions that regular worshippers sometimes ask, such as how can I give, or where can I find a standing order form? As you will see below, we are NOT asking visitors for their money, so please don't worry about this page until you are wanting to be more committed to this church!

Giving is a responsibility that regular church attenders and members see as a way to worship God. As a church we believe the Bible teaches tithing (that is giving 10% of our income). We do this out of delight and not out of duty.

As a church we are totally self funding for our day to day running costs. We do not receive any financial help from outside bodies or denominations. All funds are given by the people of the church and we seek to use the funds to honour God. (However, we do, from time to time, fundraise and seek grants towards resources and facilities that will benefit the wider community of Horley, e.g.fundraising towards our "Living Stones Building Project"   or towards a youth club or other community facility.) 

If you are a guest to our church we do not expect you to give any money to the church. It is for those who attend the church regularly. For this reason, we do not use an offering bag to take up an offering in a worship service and we ask that you do not to feel embarrassed by not giving. Occasionally we will put envelopes on the seats for a particular collection or even pass a bag around, but it is still the case that we would not want occasional visitors to feel we are asking for thier money. Of course if you feel you would like to give, that’s OK…but we don’t want you to feel obligated.

Many people, after they connect to the church, then go on to see that giving is something they would like to do. It becomes a shared responsibility by all who attend. We use our funds in various ways – supporting people, running costs of the church, as well as giving a percentage of our income to overseas mission and mission partners.

As people feel that they should give to the church we encourage people to think about setting a standing order. This is the best way to give, especially if you are a tax payer, as we are able to claim the tax back from the government, thus maximising the church’s giving.

If you would like to know more about giving then speak to our church Treasurer , or email her on treasurer@horleybaptist.org.uk. 

A Standing Order Form and Gift Aid Declaration form are attached below for those wishing to use them.
