How to Give

Information for new and current givers

We are grateful to God for everyone who gives financially towards the work of Wessex Christian Fellowship. We are convinced God wants his people to be generous and joyful givers; we also want to make it easy for you, so this page explains how you can give.

Online Giving

We encourage and teach people to give regularly to the local church, with tithing as a guideline (a tithe is a tenth of your income). This is primarily used to pay our staff, run the building and many of our church activities.

You may choose to give your tithe by:


In addition to the regular giving, an offering is taken each Sunday. Sometimes we take offering for a specific purpose or project. We announce the purpose of the offering – it may be for a project within the church (eg the Alpha Course), for our work overseas or for other needs in the UK or abroad. Once or twice a year we may have a special offering for major projects. 

Practical tips

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, the church can claim the tax you have paid on any gift, however large or small, whether a one-off gift or a regular donation. This costs you nothing but increases the value of all your gifts by a huge 25%.
