Money matters

The work of Light & Life is almost entirely funded by the church family and friends. If you would like to give financially to the work of Light & Life, Thank You!

We give in response to God’s generosity to us and to resource His mission to the world. All giving is private and only the treasurer or Gift Aid Secretary know who gives what.

Making the most of your giving

You can give regularly from your Bank or Building Society by Standing Order, with cash or cheque in the offering, or make a one-off donation. However you choose to give, if you are a UK tax payer (Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax) we can claim the tax back on your donation at no cost to you – currently 25p, plus any transactional relief, on every £1 you give! Please download and fill in the Money matters form with Gift Aid Declaration for gifts to West Cornwall (Helston, Penzance, Truro, Halye, Falmouth and Pool) or gifts to East Cornwall (St Austell, Liskeard and Bodmin) (Don’t forget to let us know if your circumstances change and you no longer pay tax).

  • You can give regularly from your Bank or Building Society. It is a great help to us if you can commit to regular giving from your Bank or Building Society by Standing Order. Please download and fill out the appropriate form (Gift Aid or Non Gift Aid version)
  • You can give with cash or cheque. To make regular or one-off gifts at various other times by cheque, postal order or cash, please download and fill out the Money Matters form)
  • If you are a tax payer please remember to Gift Aid your donation

How Light & Life gives

Light & Life is committed to giving away at least a tenth of its annual income to other groups who are engaged in God’s work around the world. Currently we give to mission work in Rwanda, China, Romania and to church planting in the UK.

What does Light & Life spend money on?

We aim to use money as wisely as possible. Good stewardship is our priority. We focus expenditure on reaching out to communities and supporting individuals and families.
