St Columba's Church of Scotland -         Midvale Road, St Helier, Jersey, Channel Islands
Your giving to St Columba's of your time, talents and money shows your gratitude to God and helps to maintain a strong church.
 
St Columba's receives no direct financial assistance from the States of Jersey or the Parish of St Helier so we must be self supporting.  We must also contribute to the wider ministry and work of the Church of Scotland. 
 
There are several ways you can give financially to St Columba's.
 
Please look at the simple guidlines below with links that will show you how to maximise the effect of your giving.
 
  Your giving makes a real difference!
 
Why should we give?
 
The people of ancient Israel brought the 'first fruits' of the harvest as an offering to God (Deuteronomy 26: 1-11).
 
  • Our giving should be a priority in our spending
The People of ancient Israel and the people of Jesu's time were expected to give a tithe of their income as an offeringto God (Ezra 2:69 and Acts 11:27-30).
 
  • Our giving should be proprtionate to our income
 
The poor widow put two small copper coins in the temple treasury (Luke 21:1-4). She wasn't being mean: it was all the money she had - truly generous giving.
 
  • Our giving should be generous, even sacrificial
 
Jesus rebuked those who were selfish and unwilling to share their wealth (Luke 12:13-21). The first Christians displayed a willingness to share - surrendering individual possessions for the common good (Acts 2:43-47 & 4:32-37) and helping to support poorer congregations (2 Corinthians 8:1-15).
 
  • Our giving should display our willingness to share what we have to fulfil God's purpose in his world.
 
In practical terms.
