Giving Information

Trinity Church Mount Barker is committed to giving each person, in all the Mount Barker region, every opportunity to respond to Jesus.

The ministry of Trinity Church Mount Barker is supported almost entirely by its members. If you are giving generously or are planning to do so, we are thankful for your support.

Why give?

Giving cheerfully and sacrificially of our finances is part of our commitment to the gospel. A Christian labours not to accrue personal wealth or possessions, but as a steward God’s resources.

Christian giving flows out of the belief that everything we have is a gift from God. Our money, our time and our gifts belong to him, and have been given to us so that we can use them to serve others (1 Peter 4:10). Christians have the perfect example of generosity in the Lord Jesus who, ‘though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.’ (2 Corinthians 8:9)

  • Christians have an incredible opportunity to proclaim the gospel as we give generously.
  • When we give, we show that God’s grace is at work in us and that money is not our master.
  • Giving helps us to rest in the truth that God will graciously provide for all our needs.
  • Giving allows us to practically help those in need.

‘Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.’ – 2 Corinthians 9:7

If you are a member of our church, we encourage you to give prayerfully, generously and cheerfully.
