Why we give
At St. Stephen's God's word is the bedrock for what everything we do, and that includes why we give financial support to the Ministries and Mission Partners of St Stephen's. The Bible teaches us how we as followers of Christ can faithfully obey God's word regarding to giving.
Psalm 24:1 implies that anything and everything we have comes from God. We are to use his good gifts in ways that honour him. The Bible tells us God’s people should give because:
If you're a follower of Christ the most basic question to ask about giving is: how much have we received from God?
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich. 2 Corinthians 8:9
Ways to Give
Cash donations can be given in person St Stephen's at the 8am and 10am Services. If you'd like to be a regular giver but would prefer to use please considering collecting a set of anonymous dated envelopes to help you give cash regularly at church. You can collect a set from the church foyer.
