If you are a visitor to Christ Church Chester and do not consider Christ Church your home, you are welcome to read on, but please do not feel under any compulsion to give financially to the work of the church! If you do consider yourself a member of Christ Church, this is for you…

Each year we want to give people the opportunity to consider afresh their financial situation. Being a committed member of a church involves 3 things: praying, serving and giving. These 3 are seen in the early church when the disciples gathered together (Acts 2:42-47; Acts 4:32-37). If you see yourself as a member of Christ Church, there is an expectation that you will be praying for the work of the church, serving in the ministry of the church and giving financially to the church.

To explore further what this means at Christ Church, there are three things you can read:

1. 2014 Giving Letter from Graham, our vicar.

2. 2014 Financial Summary

3. 2014 Student Giving Letter, addressing the particular financial concerns of students.
