Giving

As a church we are responsible for the giving we receive, being good stewards of all that God gives us. In his first letter to the church in Corinth Paul tells them ‘the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should receive their living from the gospel’ [1 Corinthians 9:14]. St. Paul’s church will endeavour to use all the monies that it receives to support the preaching and teaching of the gospel in this district and country and to support gospel mission overseas.

If you would like to be a partner in the ministry that we are doing here in Rakaia District then you may like to set up a standing order. We have a bank account that has been set up by St. Stephen’s Anglican Church, Christchurch, which has charitable status.
