How to Give
We recognise everything we have comes from God. One way to respond to God’s generosity to us is by giving financially. Below are some ways you can give to Christ Church.
Our preferred method for regular giving is through the Parish Giving Scheme. It is a secure and efficient Direct Debit system operated by a joint venture between 24 Church of England Dioceses.
You can pick up a Giving form in church.Find out more

Other Giving Options
On a Sunday:
We don't pass around a collection plate during our Sunday services, but there is an opportunity to give in a collection box at the back of church. We are also able to accept donations by debit or credit card.
Using either Charity Aid Foundation (CAF number 000279502) or a Stewardship Giving Account (number 08634939).
Check with your employer as some companies match the employee’s giving. You will need to use CAF for this facility.
Our giving is primarily a response to the generosity of God, who: "loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)
We give because God is a generous giver.
As we consider giving, we recognise that everything we have is a gift from God: "Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand." (1 Chronicles 29:14).
So, our giving is part of our discipleship, part of our worship. It’s about recognising that Jesus is Lord of every part of our lives. It’s from this starting point that we prayerfully consider giving to support the Great Commission that Jesus gives us to make disciples.
Visitors to the church are under no obligation to give.

Christ Church Abingdon is registered charity number 1153844. A full financial report, audited accounts and annual budget are published each year and made available at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting. The elected PCC scrutinises and authorises expenditure throughout the year.
15% of the money received by Christ Church is given away to support mission beyond the parish, in the UK and overseas. Occasionally we will take up special offerings in the event of a disaster or a missionary endeavour, etc. These are taken up in addition to our regular giving.
