Giving to God is one of the most exciting things in life, and we’re so grateful for the generosity of those who’ve made King's their home.
Giving honours God, blesses the community and resources the church. So whatever stage you’re at, we would love you to join the adventure!
Giving should be done responsibly. We’re called to be good stewards of our resources, and would encourage you to give without getting into debt. If you need help with budgeting or debt advice, contact us, we can point you in the right direction.

We’re so grateful for every single penny our church gives! King’s is filled with generous people who are not just resourcing the church but honouring God and placing him first in their lives. Giving is part of worship. Generous giving will become a fragrant offering, as we meet needs both at home and overseas.
Whatever stage you are at, we would like to invite you to make giving part of the big adventure of faith and worship. As Christians we are no longer under the Jewish Old Covenant with its regulations for special days, observances, tithing, food laws etc. We are now under grace (Romans 6:14), and as such we are free from the law’s demands.
Tithing was Old Testament law. Giving is a New Testament principle. This means that when we give, we give out of a heart set free to be generous.
Paul taught the (Corinthian) church the following:
“On the first day of every week each of you is to put something aside and store it up in keeping with your income, saving it up so that when I come, no collections will have to be made.”
(1 Corinthians 16:2 ESV & NIV)
“Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
(2 Corinthians 9:7)
Note that Paul doesn’t teach tithing (“tenthing”).
Jesus taught the Pharisees not to neglect justice and mercy when they tithed herbs etc, but he had yet to inaugurate the New Covenant. When the New Covenant came into being after the Cross and Resurrection, the law’s demands no longer applied to those “in Christ”.
These New Testament principles come from a heart that has received Jesus’ lavish grace, setting us free from fear of the future, that God won’t provide for our needs. Giving becomes a matter between the believer and God, between a husband and wife, where each one of us gets before God in prayer and then gives, prompted by grace and a generosity of spirit. No one is compelling you, telling you what to do! It’s a personal adventure of faith.
Realising that Jesus gave everything for us, we can then overflow with generosity in every area of our lives. We find we can give our patience, forgiveness, love, understanding—and give from our wallet or purse! Let’s be a generous people!
If you’ve got questions about how much Christians should give, Clive’s talk on generosity from our Joining the Church Family course is invaluable, and well worth every minute.
As we look forward to the 40th birthday of King’s Church, earlier this year we took a Gift Day as part of our plans for making the King’s Centre fit for purpose for the next generation. If you made a pledge or would still like to give, you can do so here.
