As a Baptist church we are financially independent, which means that all the money needed for the day to day life of the church comes from within the church itself. We rely completely on the generous giving of those who are part of our church family.
COVID has hit our monthly income hard, so any gifts you are able to make would be very much appreciated.
For more information about different ways in which you can give, some of the things your money will be used for, and how you can use Gift Aid to increase the amount the church receives at no extra cost to you, please read our leaflet 'A Guide to Giving'.
If you have further questions or would like more information, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
You can donate to the church via text message.*
- To donate £5, text BSBC to 70970

Gifts made by standing order help us to budget and plan expenditure a bit more carefully. To set up a standing order, simply download the form below.
If you are not already registered for Gift Aid with the church, please also consider if this is something you can do. Gift Aid enables us to claim back an extra 25% of the amount you give at no extra cost to you.
As a church we know how valuable the livestreamed services have been, and have committed to keep this going for the foreseeable future.
However, this means that we need to buy a number of pieces of equipment, coming to a total of around £2,500. All costs are approximate, but this includes:
- Streaming laptop (£800)
- Fibre broadband in chapel (£500 for installation plus 1 year line rental)
- Video switcher (£450)
- Cameras (£300)
- Monitors (£300)
- Stream deck (£100)
- Other (£50)
We'd like to invite everyone to help with these costs if you're able. Any gift, no matter how big or small, is very much appreciated. If you have already set up some form of giving to the church then you can use that means. Please just let Liz Cottingham know that you are giving towards the Streaming Fund. Alternatively, you can give via our fundraising page by clicking here. Thank you!
