2 Corinthians 9:6-7 (NIV)
Remember this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 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.
At Influence Church there is no compulsion to give, but if you would like to sow into the life and health of Influence Church then there are various ways in which you can do this and play your part, both practically, and financially.
We are so thankful for the generosity of the people of Influence Church who, either through their practical serving or financial giving, enable us to achieve our vision to be a positive influence in our community and build a relevant and enthusiastic Church in the heart of towns in the north of England.

Is it easy to set up a Standing Order?
Yes, it is!
With standing orders, you are in complete control. You can set this up directly with your bank through online or mobile banking or by speaking to your bank. You then can set the date that you wish for the standing order to come out, the frequency with which it comes out and the amount. You are then able to amend this easily, changing your amount, the date or the frequency.
Does Influence Church incur a cost if I give by Card?
If you give by Cash, Cheque or by Standing Order then there is no cost.
If you choose to give by card on the Giving Envelope or online, then there is a small cost that Influence Church incurs. This is due to card processing fees. If you give online, you have the option to pay these costs yourself instead of Influence Church.
