For all ministry and mission within HTS to happen the church needs to be resourced and released, financially and in other ways. Where and how we spend our money is one of the surest guides to what really matters to us. If we are serious about following Christ then we will want to give responsibly to supporting the work of His Kingdom. Out of gratitude for God's generosity to us we will want to give generously to him.
This will mean different things for different people, though we encourage all those who have a regular income to follow the Biblical example of giving at least a tithe (ten per cent) to God's work. Certainly we ask all those who consider themselves members of the church to give in a regular, planned way through weekly envelopes or Standing Order and to Gift Aid their giving if they are tax payers.
All this enables us to employ staff, maintain our buildings and reach out in service to our neighbourhood. Nevertheless, the key issue is always that each person gives what they have decided in their heart to give, and not out of compulsion.
We have a wonderful God who has blessed us in so many ways and we are so grateful to be called to share his love with others and to see their lives changed and transformed by him.
