“But just as you excel in everything – in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us – see that you also excel in this grace of giving” - Corinthians 8:7 (NIV)
Gateway 2 New Life is an expanding church located in Cornwall. It is a church that is relevantly committed to the local communities. As a collective, we take joy in the ways our faith is made stronger through giving and receiving together. There is a satisfaction that comes from following Jesus’ example of generosity for those most in need, and with it there is a desire to share God’s Word and help bring measurable change to the world in which we live in.
God has been good to us and we respond by giving back to him through the local church where He has placed us. The Bible encourages us to give regularly, sacrificially and cheerfully. It is with thankful hearts that we give our finances back to God as an act of worship. We are not under compulsion to give; rather, we should give cheerfully and prayerfully as God leads us. Giving is an act of worship to the Lord, which is why we receive these tithes and offerings as a part of our services on a Sunday.
Give in person:
There is an opportunity during our Sunday gatherings for regular attendees and members of the church to give of their finances as part of their worship to God. Please listen out for the announcement in our services.
Simply click the button below to make a one time or recurring gift by giving through Elim online secure payment system. Please note that we get charged a small processing fee when you use this service.
Give By Smartphone:
Needless to say, not all of us carry cash these days. We generally pay with our bank cards, as paying with our smartphone is an increasingly available option. One can’t deny or resist these developments, but it does pose a problem for those wanting to give, particularly now, when the collection at the Sunday meeting is not possible.
For this challenge we now have a solution. From next weekend you will be able to give digitally using a smartphone. This system will be used in conjunction with existing ways of giving.
We hope you will make use of this new way of giving. Please download the Givt app and scan the QR code below. After doing so, enter your email address and start giving. You will then be prompted to complete your registration, including Gift Aid detail.
Give By Mail:
Cheques should be made payable to ‘EFGA Launceston’ and sent to Gateway Church, The Gateway Centre, Madford Lane, Launceston, Cornwall, PL15 9TR
Give By Standing Order:
If you would like to setup an automated donation direct from your bank, saving us fees and related charges please email email@example.com
Gift Aid (giving more at no extra cost!):
If you are a taxpayer, every gift or offering made to Gateway 2 New Life can be increased by 25%. All you have to do is fill out a Gift Aid Form (once only) and hand it to us. From that time on, as long as you give by one of the methods above, we will be able to claim an extra 25% for every £1 you give without you having to do anything else.
Please note we do ask that you only give what you can afford and not to get yourself into any kind of long term debt by giving.
