Open Heaven is financed by the generosity and sacrifice of its members.
People give to Open Heaven for many different reasons. Many give as an act of worship and spiritual discipline. They seek to be dedicated followers of Christ, submitting everything they have to God, knowing that their security is not in their finances. Others give because the Bible has much to say about generosity, giving and the importance of valuing the church. If you are a UK Tax payer, you can Gift Aid your donations, which will allow us to claim the basic rate tax on your gift.
It’s the generosity of many that enables us to fulfil our vision to make disciples who establish Heaven on Earth. One off gifts and standing orders enable us to have dedicated staff time to facilitate our mission, hire venues and buy equipment, put on programmes for our children, youth and students, resource others, run community projects, host Alpha and other outreach events and bless our town. We regularly report on our finances, and in September each year we host two special gatherings in which we cast vision and raise money for the coming year.
