Giving opportunities

We know it changes lives—ours and the people we’re reaching. At BCC, taking action on your generosity is simple.

Why Do We Give

The Bible teaches us a baseline standard for giving: the principle of first fruits. When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, we put God first in our lives. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for God and others.

One of the top competitors for our devotion to Jesus is money (Matthew 6:24). Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things.

We believe you can’t outgive God, so when you’re trusting Him with your tithes and offerings we know that He will bless the rest (Proverbs 3:9-10 and Malachi 3:10-12).

We think Christians should be the most generous people (2 Corinthians 9:6) on earth to support worthy causes, and there is no organisation with more potential to change the world than the local church (Ephesians 3:10)!

What is tithing

A tithe—which just means “tenth” - is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income that is to be given back to the local church. Tithing is a principle that is taught throughout the entire Bible. When we tithe, we are expressing worship in a tangible way by putting God first in our lives.

Bringing our tithes is an opportunity for us to give God our thanks, show God we trust Him, and fight against greed in our hearts...all while allowing us to be a part of the most important work in life that is spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ!

If you would like to read more about what the Bible has to say about tithing, check out these passages: Leviticus 27:30, Proverbs 3:9-10, Malachi 3:6-10, Matthew 6:19-24 and 1 Corinthians 16:1-2.

How to Give

While you’re attending experiences at BCC, we provide giving envelopes for your convenience and security. This also helps us to maximise your giving through Gift Aid.

You can make your gifts in person using cash, cheques, or debit/credit cards. You can always drop off or mail a cheque to our office.

Want to give regularly?

There are a few different ways to do this. You can give regularly by setting up a standing order – this is the most convenient and efficient way for us to process any giving we receive, and it also helps us plan more effectively.
