Supporting CBC


We believe that God is a generous and providing God, and so his church should be a generous and caring people, giving as they have received. We also believe that the primary work of God's church is gospel ministry, and so the primary responsibility for partnering in this work lies with God's own people, with whatever resources, abilities and finances we are able to give.

There are a number of different ways that you can give financially to the life of CBC, whether you are a member or not.
 

How do you prefer to give?

 

Do you pay tax? If so, please read this...

If you pay tax through your personal earnings, like a salary or pension then, as a charity, we can reclaim 25% of your donation from the government. However to do this, we do need your permission by signing a short Gift Aid Declaration. This means that a £100 donation is topped by the Government so your donation becomes £125.

You are able to Gift Aid regardless of whether you give by paying into the bank or by using envelopes on a Sunday - we just need to have the signed form from you.

If you currently give to CBC and pay tax, please complete the following form and return it either by email to finance@calderwoodbaptist.co.uk or simply hand it in to the church office.

Regular giving through your bank account

Set up a Standing Order with your bank using the bank details below:

Bank: Clydesdale Bank             
Account Name: Calderwood Baptist Church
Sort Code: 82-62-24
Account Number: 10230694


You are in full control of this. You decide how much you wish to give and how much you wish to donate and you can stop the standing order at any point. If you are a UK tax payer, please remember to complete a Gift Aid form.
 

Giving in the basket on a Sunday

During our church services, there is an opportunity to be able to give to CBC.
We have Weekly Offering Envelopes, which you can use to give by cash or cheque (made payable to Calderwood Baptist Church). Many of our members like these as it allows them to plan their giving. These envelopes are available from Thomas McNeil. Remember, you can still Gift Aid your donation even if you use the envelopes.

 

Making a one-off donation

You can make a one-off donation to CBC using any of the following methods. If you wish your donation to be used for a specific purpose, please indicate this on the payment reference or the envelope.

1. BACS - you can make a payment through your bank using the details above.
2. Cheque - should be made payable to Calderwood Baptist Church. 
3. Cash - placed in a donation envelope and given to any member of the Finance Team or placed in the offering basket. (Donation envelopes are available if you ask).

What should I expect when I visit the church?

You will receive a very warm welcome particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go.

In our morning service, there will be around 45 minutes of worship with the whole Church family when there will be singing, prayer, and a children's message. At this point, the children will leave for their own Sunday Club. The Bible will then be read and one of our Pastors or leaders will preach from God's word. The service usually finishes around 12noon.

In our evening service, we usually spend about 20 minutes singing and praying before the Bible is read and preached. Our evening service usually finishes around 8pm.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after all of our services where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.
 

What happens to the kids at church?

We have a fantastic programme for the kids at our Church. Children stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship together for the first part of the morning. Someone will announce when the children need to go to their programme.

We have a very gifted team of Sunday Club teachers who lead a great curriculum for all ages. We have the following Sunday Club classes:

0-3 years:     Creche
3-5 years:     Pre-School Sunday Club 
P1 - P7:        Sunday Club
S1 - S3:        Bible Class
 
For more information about our Sunday Club please visit our Sunday Club page.
 

Is there a dress code?

No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.
 

Will I have to join in?

Not at all!
You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.
