How do I give?

Depending on if you’re a regular or not, there are a number of easy ways to give and support the work of Holland Road.

For regulars, we have an offering during each service which is an opportunity to give by cheque or cash; many choose to give directly by monthly standing order. The account number is 01835629 and the sort code is 01-01-23. Please remember to fill out a Gift Aid form.

If you’re not a regular and want to give a gift you can:

  • Put cash or cheques in the offering on a Sunday or drop them into the office during the week;
  • Give online by debit or credit card;
  • Give by text for amounts of up to £30. Just text HRBC22 followed by a space and the amount you want to give to 70070. For example, text ‘HRBC22 10’ to give £10. This is completely free.

For more information and details on how to give regularly, including online banking and Gift Aid, please pick up a ‘Giving’ booklet from the connections point, download and print a Gift Aid and Standing Order form or contact us.

In addition to our regular giving we also hold two gift days a year, where members have the opportunity to give over and above their regular giving: one for general fundraising and one specifically for world missions.

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

How to give towards Gift Days

During the meeting, on the day, you can put your offering in the collection. There are special envelopes available you can use, or use any envelope clearly marked ‘Gift Day’ and place cheques inside. Please make cheques payable to ‘Holland Road Baptist Church Trust’.
You can give online by bank transfer. Please contact us to let us know the date of the transfer so we can trace it and mark the transfer as ‘Gift Day’. Acc. No: 01835629. Sort Code: 01-01-23.
Please remember to fill out a Gift Aid form if you are a UK taxpayer.
You can give online by credit or debit card.

Why give?

One of our values as a church is generous giving. We believe that God loves to bless us when we give, and that through it we get to be part of His work on earth. Here are three reasons to give generously:

1) God’s been generous to us – 2 Corinthians 9:15

2) Materialism is toxic to our faith and giving is the best antidote – 1 Timothy 6:17-19

3) What we give is like a seed sown that will reap a harvest. The more we sow, the greater the harvest – 2 Corinthians 9:6-7

Where does the money go?

Holland Road Baptist Church has no external source of income, so all our ministries are completely supported by the giving of the congregation. The church’s funds are split between staff salaries, groups within the church, church operations and maintenance. We also give at least 25% of the church’s income to work beyond ourselves – find out more on our world mission page.
