Giving — Connect Church | Christchurch

Thanks for your responses (and ongoing prayer) for funding Karori Anglican’s work.  We are encouraged by the faithful response of a number of the congregation already.

We know that everyone’s circumstances are unique and commend your giving to prayerful consideration. We are aiming to increase our usual giving by 20% per household.

“We had a conversation about giving and realised our thinking around giving had shifted. We feel that giving is part of our Christian walk – we give because we are part of God’s Kingdom, and not because we are seeking favour from God. It’s part of what being a Christian means to us, the way we live out our faith. Therefore we increased our giving. Following Ian’s recent sermon we also made an extra donation for the same reason.”  Annon Parishioner

Thank you so much for this, we appreciate you all very much
