Instructions for how to join us in person for Sunday morning worship

We are all learning to live with COVID but we still want to make you feel as safe as possible in church. We will still encourage the following for your safety and well being..

 

If you, or a family member, have any symptoms of COVID you must not attend, or if you have travelled abroad and are subject to any current quarantine rules.   Please follow Government guidelines in these circumstances.

  • If you or your family feel unwell during the service and develop symptoms of COVID please report it to one of the leaders straight away and return home immediately. Follow recommended government guidelines as these are subject to frequent change.

  • There is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering, however, the Govt suggests that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you don't normally meet. We recognise that this is now personal choice.

  • We continue to encourage good hand hygiene by hand washing and have additionally supplied hand gel on entrances and exits 

  • To limit the spread of COVID we will ventilate the sanctuary by opening windows and doors but obviously take into consideration weather and temperature conditions.

  • You will be asked to take any waste home or place in bins provided.

  • Please don’t share pens etc.

  • There will be no passing of the collection bag, new procedures will be in place but we would like to encourage electronic/online giving [please see details on how to give further down this page], although we accept there are some who prefer to give cash. Envelopes will be placed on designated seats before the service, offerings can be placed into the envelope and left on your seat, these will be collected after the congregation leave the church.

  • Social distancing in places of worship is now personal choice but please respect other attendees and those who wish to adopt a more cautious approach.  

 

Bank Details/Church Tithes and Offerings Information

'Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine' Proverbs 3:9-10

An aspect of our worship to consider is the importance of how and why we make our offerings.  Our desire to give of our first fruits to the storehouse can be impeded by a lack of convenience, and yet the word of God compels us continue where there is a way.  A dangerous mistake for any Christian is to believe that our giving is somehow an unhappy duty, rather than a joyous sacrifice in the knowledge that God has provided for us first and that all we are doing is honouring Him by submitting willingly to our inherent need to contribute to His Church.  

 

There are currently three ways that we can continue to make our tithes and offerings.  Please take note of the details of Gift Aid giving.  This is a hugely important step where we can make a real difference if we are a tax payer.

Firstly, below are the details of the church bank account for all who would like to send a one off BACS payment or set up a standing order.

It is by far the easiest and most convenient way to pay your offering on a regular basis. If you bank online, you can easily set this up and control everything yourself.

Where you do not bank online all the details you will need to give to your bank are listed below.

For anything you don't understand please get in touch with Emma Campbell who will be able to answer any questions you may have.

 

Standing orders are completely controlled by you and can be cancelled or amended at any time. Additionally, all payments are totally private arrangements and NEVER discussed at any church meetings.

 

The details you'll need for both of these transactions are....

 

Account Name: New Hope Baptist Church 

Nat West Bank

Sort Code: 60 07 06

Account Number: 40778061

 

Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a scheme which allows charities to claim from HMRC, the basic rate of tax their donors have paid. Gift Aid increases the value of donations by 25%, so it means even more money goes to the causes you care about – and it won't cost you extra.

If you have completed a gift aid form for the church and are a tax payer can you please add your name in the payment description to keep for evidence of Gift Aid Giving. 

 

Secondly, at the bottom of every page on this website is a 'donate' button where we can pay your tithes by way of PayPal.  This can be a convenient way, particularly where we have an email account.  If you do not already have the facility of PayPal it its easy and convenient to set it up on any of your devices.

Thirdly, where you would only make your offerings in cash, I would suggest that you set aside at your usual intervals, the amount you choose to give.  We will eventually return to a normality where you will be able to pass this on to our church treasurer.  Again, if you do this please give attention to the Gift Aid scheme.
