How we run
Chatsworth Baptist Church is financed entirely by its members and regular givers i.e what people give on a Sunday morning or through a standing order, is what we live on.
We do not receive any funding from other bodies or organisations, although we do raise some funds by renting our halls and rooms, and from legacies and gifts.
From Sunday services to youth activities, prayer times and pastoral visiting, cultural celebrations, job clubs, Alpha courses, small groups & more, we run on people's desire to be part of the family of God here at Chatsworth.
Standing Order form
Gift Aid form
Hetty preached recently from 2 Corinthians 9:6-15 and shared lots of great points about what it means to give.
Here are 3 of them:
It's a planned thing: "Each of you should give what you have decided..." Decide what you can give "...on the first day of the week..." (1 Cor 16:2) i.e. before you spend your money on anything else - and therefore in advance.
It's a Spiritual thing: we give first to the Lord, then to the Church (2 Cor 8:5); for Jesus gave up His riches so that we may lack nothing
It's a voluntary/heart thing: "...for God loves a cheerful giver..."; for if you bless others, God will bless you and provide all you need (what you need, not want).

Give regularly by Standing Order
STANDING ORDER allows your bank to transfer to the church a regular amount each month. We prefer this method of giving as it enables the church to plan.
You can download a STANDING ORDER form here to send to your bank above.
GIFT AID means that your giving to the Church is considered a gift, as the Church is a charity and can claim back tax i.e. if you give £100, the Church can claim back £25 from the Government from the tax you paid them.
Please fill in the Gift Aid form and send to the Church. Form above.
CONTACTLESS we can now accept payments, gifts and offerings with our contactless machine. It accepts payments from a debit or credit card or your smartphone.
ONLINE GIVING means we have the facility to accept gifts online through Virgin Money Giving: should you wish your gift to be for something specific, such as youth work or building fund, please specify when making the gift.
OFFERING ENVELOPES are available on request or at the back of the church. They are helpful in planning your giving and for the Church to reclaim Gift Aid if you qualify when you give cash or a cheque.
OFFERINGS are taken at services where you can give cash or a cheque made payable to to Chatsworth Baptist Church.
We also have a contactless machine.
BUILDING FUND is a separate fund to maintain and improve and adapt our buildings; we replaced the Goodwin Hall roof a couple of years ago and the Sanctuary was refurbished before that. There are other improvements and updates to be made, including windows, heating, decoration, and changes to some areas. A number of Members give separately and regularly to the fund.
