Phil Cooper is an Elder at Cornerstone, and serves us by handling the important Church finances.
Speak to Phil if you have any questions about regular/one-off giving or gift-aid.
A church needs financial backing just like any other organisation or project does, but as we are not a business we rely solely on the free offerings of others.
To function as a church we need money: we employ Pastors who we desperately need to feed us from God’s Word in order that we continue living as Christians; we rent Bedelsford School each Sunday from where we hold our church services; we run events which can include buying food, printing fliers and other things to get people along to and tell them the gospel.
We only ask our regular church members to give money towards our church work. We don’t have a collection during services because we do not want to ask newcomers or visitors for money.
You can give to Cornerstone church in the following ways. Please also Gift Aid your support if you can.
