Generous giving is one of the key marks of Jesus’ disciple
2 Corinthians 9:7-8 encourages us to see how we should approach giving and how God uses our giving;
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
The reality is the mission and ministry of St Paul’s Sydney and Redeemer Narraweena depends on everyone connected to us contributing to God’s mission and ministry in whatever way they can.

Please remember the principles of Christian giving
- we give from what we have access to (Luke 21:1-4)
- we are returning to God what He has already given us (Psalm 24:1, Malachi 3:8)
- we give to support God’s ministry and mission as a collective (Romans 15:23-32)
- we give of our first fruits and portion of what we receive (Proverbs 3:9-10, 1 Corinthians 16:2)
- we give not to receive something from God, but because He has already blessed us and to bless others in His name (Genesis 12:2, Matthew 10:5-8)
- we give cheerfully and generously (2 Corinthians 9:6-11, Matthew 25:14-30)
- we give so others will become disciples of Jesus (Matthew 28:16-20)
We understand that everyone is different, and that some people are in a better position to give very generously, whilst others would love to but can’t. That is OK, we are not asking you to give from what you do not have, but rather encouraging to give in ways you can.
