Giving is a part of our calling as Christians, it is a part of our worship, our discipleship and our partnership in the gospel. The New Testament does not require us to give a specific amount, but invites us to give cheerfully, willingly and thankfully. Many followers of Jesus understand their giving as a spiritual discipline, and set aside a specific monthly offering to their home church using the automatic payments available through their bank. Others give in a numbered envelope that maintains their anonymity but ensures donations are receipted for tax purposes. (Our church is a registered donee organisation, so you can claim a tax credit on those donations.)
If we all do our part, our mission and ministries will thrive. If you want to get involved in supporting Eastview:

If current donors have an ability to increase that giving, or are in a position to make a one off contribution to general costs, then your generosity will be received gratefully and used wisely. We are committed to trusting God's provision, but also aware that he uses the stewardship of believers as part of his resourcing of the kingdom.
"Giving is a spiritual act. It is a belief in the future, that the future can be good.”
