Contributing financially to the work of God’s kingdom is one of the cornerstones of our Christian faith.

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:7)

By giving to the Church you enable us to fulfil the vision that we believe God has set before us. The donations you make will contribute towards general running expenses of the Church, including staffing, equipment and resources for our Church programs and in the wider community, locally and globally.

St Albans Baptist Church is a registered charity under the Charities Act 2005.

Donation Number
We encourage those who are regularly making donations to the Church to obtain a donation number, which will enable us to give you a tax receipt at the end of the financial year. Please include your donation number with all your payments to ensure you receive your tax receipt. Currently the IRD allows you to claim a portion of this back by filing a Tax credit claim form (IR526). For a donation number, please contact Murdo Paterson.
