We trust that God will provide for all our needs at St Andrew the Great as we seek to make him known. God uses members of the congregation to meet many of these needs, through generous and sacrificial giving, for which we are so grateful. There are many ways to give to the work of St Andrew the Great, including the giving of our time through service, and through our finances.
The church is almost entirely funded by the generous giving of its members, covering the many different areas of expenditure, such as staffing, maintaining our buildings, administration costs and the running of events. We also send money to support our mission partners elsewhere in the UK and overseas. There are a number of different ways in which you are able to give financially to the work of the church, which are listed below. All of our finances are carefully monitored to try to make sure we are getting the best value for money, and that there is neither waste nor any opportunity for impropriety. We are a registered charity; audited accounts are published each year and filed with the Charity Comission. Please contact the Treasurer if you have any questions.

The Jesus Lane Trust
There is also the opportunity to directly support St Andrew the Great's work with students and young people by giving to the Jesus Lane Trust. The Trust was set up by ex-members of the congregation to support our student work and youth work both financially and in prayer, and it currently supports six student workers and four church apprentices.
