Holland Road Baptist Church


Some of our usual means of giving, like a Sunday offering have had to stop due to the changes to church life caused by the Coronavirus pandemic.

How do I give normally?

The easiest ways to give towards the work at Holland Road at the present time are:

  1. Online by standing order or bank transfer. The account number is 01835629 and the sort code is 01-01-23.
  2. If you already have a PayPal account you can give online via PayPal.
  3. Give online by debit or credit card.
  4. You can post cheques to our office but please note this may take longer than usual to process.
  5. Text ‘HRBC 3’ to 70470 to give £3. You can give up to £20 in a single text using this method, just change the number appropriately.

If you are a UK taxpayer please remember to fill out a Gift Aid and Standing Order, unless you always give by either methods 2 or 3 above, as then Gift Aid is collected as part of the process.

For more information and details on how to give regularly, including online banking and Gift Aid, please 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.

How do I give to gift days?

  1. If you can give online through your bank website or phone app (our sort code: 01-01-23 , account number: 01835629), then please do, and make sure to email Helen Steele (helens@hrbc.org.uk) with the details of your gift, to ensure your gift gets correctly allocated to the Gift Day.
  2. If you can’t give online, then please post or hand deliver a cheque to church, in an envelope addressed to Helen Steele and marked ‘We Love Our Church Gift Day’.

If you are a UK taxpayer please remember to fill out a Gift Aid form, unless you always give by credit or debit card, as then Gift Aid is collected as part of the process.

If you have any questions about giving please contact Helen Steele.

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

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.
