SUGGESTIONS FOR financial GIVING
On the first day of the week, each one of us should set aside a sum of money, which is affordable and keeping in line with our income. (1 Corinthians 16:2)
We have all been called to give generously and cheerfully, and this pleases God who will reward us accordingly. (1 Corinthians 9:7 and Luke 6:38)
The following are various ways you can give to St Catherine’s:
REGULAR GIVING: You can give regularly: either weekly or monthly. Offerings can be either tithes (a proportion of your income), or a fixed regular amount. These gifts can be put in the collection at SA/SU services, or you can pay directly by bank transfer.
ONE-OFF GIFTS: On birthdays, or baptisms or weddings, or other anniversaries and various occasions, you can donate to the church either for a specific project or activity or as general offering.
STANDING ORDER/DIRECT DEBIT/ÜBERWEISUNG : You can donate to the church by standing order or direct debit or Überweisung.

In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability.
Entirely on their own. (2 Corinthians 8: 2 -3)
