Thank you for your interest in giving financially to Hope Church.
We are grateful to everyone who gives regularly to Hope Church, it enables us to do all that God has called us to do in Guildford and beyond. All our income comes from those who attend Hope church and it enables us to pay our staff, hire venues, run courses and events and provide refreshments.
As a church we also give away at least 10% of our income. There are several groups and charities that we support financially and in other ways. We believe hope works.
We would encourage all those who call Hope Church their home to give in proportion to their income. Our Sunday meetings are a great opportunity to give via cash or cheque, payable to Hope Church. Outside of Sunday meetings there are other ways to give too.
We are committed to excellent financial management at Hope Church. We do all we can to maintain the highest levels of integrity with the resources God gives us.
Examples of steps we’ve taken include:
Establishing policies for secure handling, counting and recording of all gifts.
Preparing and managing a budget.
Conducting an external accounting audit annually.
Providing regular reports to our Trustees and to the Charity Commission.
Providing a financial report to the church.
Our annual accounts are also published by the Charity Commission.
If you have any questions about our financial management, please do not hesitate to ask.
