FINANCE

Financial giving is part of our worship as Christians and balancing our income and expenditure as a church is a discipline we cannot avoid. We do not have significant reserves or large sources of external income. The £2,800 per week we need to fund our ministries is given almost entirely by our members. 

This leaflet explains how our church finances work and why your giving matters and the video at the bottom of the page explains what Christian Giving is all about.

With the church not able to meet in person, many of our normal income streams are closed but our outgoings are nearly the same. If you usually give via the collection plate, please consider setting up a standing order.

To set up a standing order, contact your bank.

Our details are as follows:
HSBC bank
St Matthew’s & St Oswald’s PCC
Account number 91478176
Sort code 40-39-11

If you are a tax-payer, please complete a Gift Aid Form which allows us to add 25% to your gift at no cost to you. You can download one from here and return it to our Treasurer, Guy Mowbray, 36 Hillmorton Road, Rugby, CV22 5AA.
