If you love something, you’ll get behind it. If you think something is good, you’ll back it. If you like what something’s about, you’ll invest in it. So if you love the vision of The Belfrey, then give.
The Belfrey is a church. A church is a non-profit organisation that doesn’t make money. Instead we exist to serve. To serve God’s transformation of the North. To see lives changed in York and the North through Jesus Christ. To do that we need people to give.
People give in lots of ways - including their time, energy and prayers. These are all needed and really appreciated. But we also need people to give their money, and we’re not ashamed to ask people for this because we believe that what we’re about is good and of real value. That’s why we have a giving page on our website and a simple ‘Give to The Belfrey’ button on the base of the home-page. We want to make giving easy, because giving is important. Giving makes a difference.
As a church we have vision beyond our resources. That means that there’s lots we’d love to do but we’re constrained by funds. We need to increase our income so we can step up to do what God has called us to do. That’s one thing that the leaders in the church are praying about. So if you can help be an answer to that prayer, then give.
You can give a one-off sum, which is good. Even better is to set up a standing order. That’s a great way to give - because it’s easy and it’s regular. It’ll benefit The Belfrey month after month and it’ll benefit you too in more ways that you can imagine.
