GIVING

The main source of income for New Life comes from the generous giving of our church family. Our income is used to support the work of New Life here in Croydon, including the pastoral and administrative functions and the upkeep of our building, plus 12.5% of our voluntary income goes towards our missions budget. We are extremely grateful to all those who give to New Life. Thank you! 

Ways to give

 

Tithely

Use the ‘Give Now’ button above or download the Tithely app to your smartphone to give one-off or regular donations. We suggest you sign up for an account with Tithely and save your payment details. This means you can give quickly and also view your giving history. If you are UK taxpayer please consider checking the ‘Claim Gift Aid’ option. More about Gift Aid below.  

Give regularly by bank transfer

If you give regularly, you can set up a regular payment through your bank using the details below. If you are a UK taxpayer, please consider signing up for Gift Aid for New Life if you haven’t already done so – more info on Gift Aid below. 

Account Name: NLCC Croydon  
Account Number: 50810428 
Sort Code: 08-90-79 
Bank: Co-op  
Reference: Please state the purpose of your gift, preceded by your gift aid number if you have one. E.g. if your gift aid no is 1234, use ‘1234/regular’, or just ‘regular’ if you don’t gift aid your donations. If you are unsure of your Gift Aid number, please contact accounts below. 

Sunday Offering

Each week at our Sunday meetings there is an opportunity to give an offering. You can do so in any of the following ways: 

Tithely 
You can give using Tithely by downloading the app to your smartphone or by clicking ‘Give Now’ at the top of this page. 

Cash
Coins/notes can be placed in the bags we pass round during a service. If you are registered for gift aid, please put your name and gift aid number on the relevant envelope and enclose your cash before putting it in the bag. This will help us identity you as the gift aid donor.  

Cheques
Cheques should be made out to ‘NLCC Croydon’ and placed directly in the offering bags. If you are registered for gift aid with us, please write your gift aid number (and the purpose if it’s other than tithes/offerings) on the back of your personal cheques. Ltd company cheques cannot be gift aided, so there is no need to write your donor number on the back. Cheques do not need to be placed in envelopes as they will already have your name on. 

Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a great way to make the giving of UK taxpayers go further. If you pay tax, New Life is able to claim an extra 25p on every £1 you give. 

If you give through Tithely, please select the ‘Claim Gift Aid’ option when you make your gift. 

If you give by bank transfer, cash or cheque, please fill in a Gift Aid Declaration form which can be found at New Life. You only need to do this once, but please notify us if you: 

  • change your name or home address 
  • no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains 
  • wish to cancel your declaration 

More info on Gift Aid can be found on the HMRC website here.

Advice on giving and money

We’d encourage anyone who gives to New Life or is part of New Life to familiarise themselves with our teaching on Money and Giving by reading this webpage.

If you are struggling with financial issues or debt, we would encourage you to reach out to our CAP Debt Centre. Have a read of this page  and get in touch with CAP (Christians Against Poverty).  

If giving to New Life would put you into debt, we strongly advise you against doing so.
