Committed giving in the form of planned giving and Covenant schemes, together with the wise use of time and talents, enables our Church to function in Wavertree, in the Diocese and overseas.
Further information can be obtained from the Rector, the Chairman of the Christian Responsibility Commitee, Mr Jeff Lightfoot, and the Chairman of the Tithing Committee, Mr Frank Donovan.
At Holy Trinity, Wavertree we believe that we should help others and so we aim to tithe 10% of our income to worthy causes. Of course there are always more worthy causes than we can help.
A small committee, to whom the congregation are free to make representations, chooses the recipients. Then, after much consultation with various charities and other bodies, the Parochial Church Council (PCC) makes the final decision about what we should give in a way that would enable to recipient to use our money to best advantage and so we have a structured method of giving.
Each year we guarantee a fixed sum for three consecutive years, then we guarantee a fixed sum for two years and thirdly we give a one off donation. We intend to give to an international charity, a City charity and a Diocesan charity - there is also some scope for response to an emergency or plea for help.
We are always open to ideas for organisations to help and also for more people to participate in our Christian Giving Scheme – particularly if we can claim the assistance of the Government in the form of Gift Aid Tax relief. Ray Forster (734 4358) will be most happy to assist with any queries etc.
