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.
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:
God’s been generous to us – 2 Corinthians 9:15
Materialism is toxic to our faith and giving is the best antidote – 1 Timothy 6:17-19
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
The easiest ways to give towards the work at Holland Road at the present time are:

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 already have a PayPal account you can give online via PayPal.
You can post cheques to our office but please note this may take longer than usual to process.
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.
If you have any questions about giving please contact Helen Steele (email@example.com)
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
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.
