Our Mission Giving


Have you ever asked yourself, 'Why has God provided so much financial blessing?' You don’t need to wonder. God tells us exactly why he provides us with more money than we need.

And God, who supplies seed for the sower and bread to eat, will also supply you with all the seed you need and will make it grow and produce a rich harvest from your generosity. He will always make you rich enough to be generous at all times, so that many will thank God for your gifts which they receive from us. (2 Corinthians 9:10-11)

This is why we give. We are called to give willingly and cheerfully, according to our means.

At All Hallows 10% of the regular planned giving to the church goes in mission giving. The generosity of our congregation allows us to distribute over £7,000 each year.

We give to causes both at home and abroad. This page describes the causes we try to support each year. This next year we will struggle to balance our books as the church sees increases in costs, especially to heat, light and insure our church. If we want to continue to expand our mission, we all need to look into our hearts and 'give willingly and cheerfully, according to our means'.

Church Mission Society and our mission partner Ian Harvey  

CMS has missionaries operating worldwide and can continue to do its work only with the support of people like us. CMS is committed to evangelistic mission, working to see our world transformed by the love of Jesus. We believe that, by making disciples, resourcing leaders and transforming communities we make our unique contribution to God’s mission. We do this as a community that shares a longing to see all peoples being drawn into fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

We give a minimum of £1,200 a year to CMS.

Within CMS we have a particular mission partner, Ian Harvey. Ian works in Africa in DR Congo. His key project 'The Kimbilio project' has been building a Centre of Safety for children to go to. Kimbilio is a Swahili word meaning 'a place to run for safety'. Please follow the link to learn about Ian's important work. 

The Children's Society

Each year we allocate a percentage of our mission giving to the Children's Society. Its logo says it all 'A Better childhood - For every child' . This is an extract from its website telling us who they are:

The Children's Society is a children's charity which wants to create a society where children and young people are valued, respected and happy.

We are committed to helping vulnerable and disadvantaged young people, including safeguarding children in care and young runaways. We give a voice to disabled children, help young refugees to rebuild their lives and provide relief for young carers. Through our campaigns and research, we seek to influence policy and perceptions so that young people have a better chance in life.

Christian Aid

In addition to all those who support Christian Aid Week, we directly support this charity from our giving. Christian Aid and its partners are working to bring an end to poverty around the world, tackling its root causes as well as its effects. You can learn more at its website by following the link.

Compassion UK

Our Sunday Clubs have supported Compassion UK from their collections. This year we have also supported the important work of Compassion UK from our mission giving.

Compassion is an international Christian child development and child advocacy ministry. Partnering with local churches, who are committed to the spiritual, economic, social and physical development of children living in extreme poverty in 26 countries, enabling them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.

National Churches Trust

The National Churches Trust is the only national, independent, non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting and supporting church buildings of historic, architectural and community value across the UK.

National Churches Trust gave a grant of £20,000 towards our Tower project as part of their work. They asked only that we give a donation, according to our means, in return. The PCC has agreed to give £500 a year towards the work of National Churches Trust this year and for the following 5 years.
