Generosity and Giving

The Bible tells us that everything we have comes from God.  He is so generous to us, that we want to give back to him.  One way of doing that is to support the Church.  We want to bring God’s love to the people of Bentley more and more.  We believe and trust that God will supply everything we need, and the principal way he does that is through the generous giving of those who worship here at St Peter’s.

If you would like to support us financially, we like to make it easy for you!

  • If you would like to set up a standing order or make a payment from your bank account to ours, for example by internet banking, our sort code is 405240 and the Account number is 00033179.  We bank with CAF Bank.  If you are a UK taxpayer, you can gift aid your donation.  This allows us to claim the tax you’ve already paid on this money back from HMRC.  We are working on an online form for this, but you can email the office on hello@stpetersbentley.org and we can help you get this set up.
  • You can make a one-off or a regular donations from your card too.  So we can be sure your details are all safe and secure, we use a company called givealittle to process these payments.  Our givealittle page is here.  If you are a UK taxpayer, you can gift aid your donation on the website.

As you can see, our biggest source of income is through the grants and subsidies we receive.  Many of these are time limited and without them we would need to reduce our staffing.  We continue to pray every week that God will grow a sustainable church here in Bentley and that he will continue to move people to be generous in general and towards the Church.  If you have any questions about anything you’ve read here, feel free to drop us an email to hello@stpetersbentley.org and we’ll get back to you.
