“But since you excel in everything…see that you also excel in this grace of giving.”
2 Corinthians 8:7
Supporting Our Vision
As you prayerfully consider how you can support our vision to see every life transformed, this leaflet provides an introduction to giving at Saint James and sets out some Biblical principles to guide you in our thinking. You may also find it helpful to listen to this sermon on giving, from Matt Beeby.
Listen to: Partnership in Giving
Our vision is to see every life transformed. Through Jesus. For God’s glory. We provide a termly update on our finances, together with more detailed reports at our APCM and periodically at Prayer Central during the year.
It’s an exciting time here at Saint James. God is at work. And we dare to believe that there is more to come! Some are professing faith in Jesus for the very first time; new people are arriving; others are speaking of spiritual growth. Jesus is building his church. We would love you to be involved. If you have a query about our vision or finances and would like to speak to a member of the Finance Team or Leadership Team, please feel free to get in touch: [email protected].

1. Regular Standing Order
The most helpful way to support Saint James is to set up a standing order with your bank. Once you have decided how much to give, you can set up the arrangement with your bank and then they will automatically process your gifts in accordance with your instructions. It therefore saves you time, it means that you don’t forget when life is too busy and – crucially – it helps the PCC and Leadership Team with our financial planning.
You can also set-up and manage regular donations through charity accounts like Stewardship or CAF.
The bank details you will need are:
|PAYABLE TO:||PCC of Saint James Gerrards Cross and Fulmer|
|National Westminster Bank Plc, Gerrards Cross|
2. Direct bank payment
You can use your online or telephone banking to make a payment using the details above.
3. Cheque or charity voucher (e.g. Stewardship or CAF voucher)
Made payable to “PCC of St James Gerrards Cross and Fulmer”.
4. Online Giving
You can make a secure online gift through Stewardship. You’ll enter a few details to enable them to process your gift. Setting up an account will enable you to make future payments more quickly.
If you’re unable to set-up your giving directly with your bank please download the appropriate giving forms.
