Giving

We love being generous

We have an amazing Heavenly Father who loves to provide for all we need. One of the ways we can honour

Him is with our finances - through our 'tithes' (10% of what we receive) and also our 'offerings'. These gifts

enable the church here to serve Him better in our local ministry and in mission projects further afield.  

The simplest way to make a one-off gift to support the church,

is by clicking the button below and donating via Church Suite

Here are some other ways in which you can give financially:

Cash/Cheques


These can be put in the collection during services or dropped into the Office. If you give by cheque, please make it payable to ‘CMPCC (Lantern)’.




Regular Giving


Many prefer to give by Standing Order and arrange to pay a monthly sum directly from their bank/building society into the church account.

If you would like to set up a form of regular giving, please download a copy of the ‘Giving Leaflet’, fill out the ‘Standing Order’ form and hand in to Andy Farmer or the Church Office. Thank you.




Envelope Scheme


Envelopes are available for weekly or monthly offerings, which can then be put into the collection during our worship services.




Gift Aid


If you are a UK tax payer, by completing a Gift Aid Declaration Form, your giving is increased by 25p per every £1, at no extra cost to you (the additional amount being given by the Inland Revenue!). Download a copy of the 'Giving Leaflet', fill out the 'Gift Aid Declaration' Form and pass to Andy Farmer or the Church Office.




Lovefund


There are often people within the church and outside who face genuine hardship through unemployment, financial downturn, sickness etc. If you have a need, or know of someone who needs emergency financial support, or if you wish to contribute to the Love fund please make cheques payable to "CMPCC, the Lantern" and enclose in an enveloped marked ‘THE LOVE FUND’ – c/o the Church Office.

donate to our LOVE CHRISTMAS Fund

LOVE Christmas is our Christmas giving appeal this year. With many already being wonderfully supportive and generous to local charities (much needed, thank you!) we thought we’d also keep in mind our brothers and sisters in the developing world, who continue to suffer, not just from the effects of the pandemic, but from poverty, war, floods and persecution. This year we are giving to three charities that do amazing work in the developing world, Tearfund, Redtribe and The Bible Society. If you are able to, please be as generous as you can with what God has given you and help transform lives this Christmas. Thank you.
