Why give?

Jesus said, “I came to give you life and life in all its fullness” (John 10:10) If we truly consider life, health, family, job – everything we have – as gifts from God (James 1:17) then, as freely we’ve received, freely we must give (Matt 10:8). We give our time, talents, prayers and money, not because we have to, but because it is our response to the one who has given us the gift of life and all the side orders as well (2 Corinthians 5:15).  Giving is about giving what the Bible calls “first fruits” – in other words, before we give to anything or anyone else, we give to God. He gets our best.

Why give to Holy Sepulchre?

  • Our money both follows and reflects what we truly value. If you have invested your life, time and friendship here, then why not also invest financially?
  • Holy Sepulchre does raise money in other ways (such as through hiring our building), but our main source of income is through giving.  If we want to see our vision in action in the City, we need money to do it.
  • We are not financially supported by the Church of England or any other church. In fact, the reverse; we contribute to a bigger pot (The Common Fund) to allow churches to continue in areas of London where there is significant deprivation.

Where does the money go?
