Our giving to God’s work is a large part of our worship as followers of Jesus Christ. Giving is a wonderful way to partner with God in His great mission. We believe in investing financially, as well as with our gifts, time and prayers, into activities that advance God’s message of good news, in our community and around the world. This will include the planting of new churches and ministry to the poor.

It costs money to plant and maintain local churches with all their ministries and outreaches. As a church, we regularly give out of our own income to support the work of Relational Mission (the family of churches that we are joined to), and People International (who work in Central Asia). We also give to other works that God puts us in relationship with.

Why we give

Giving is a heart issue. In 2 Corinthians 9:7 we read, “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” Giving is also an adventure of faith. We get to experience the flow of God’s supernatural provision as we step out in obedience to his gentle promptings.

We are so grateful for the generous giving of the New Life Church family and we invite you to join with us in this exciting and rewarding activity. Thank you for your generosity.

All acts of giving are greatly appreciated.

The importance of Gift Aid

Complete a quick and easy online Gift Aid declaration here.

If you pay Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the UK, we can claim back 25p on every £1 you donate through the Gift Aid scheme, recovered from the money you’ve paid in those taxes. To allow us to do this, please complete this online Gift Aid declaration.

If you are a UK higher rate (40 per cent) or additional rate (45 per cent) income tax payer and you give to Open Doors Network directly and allow us to reclaim the basic rate tax through Gift Aid then you may recover, through your tax return, the difference between the basic rate tax that Open Doors Network recovers and the higher or additional rate that you have paid.
