Give to The Oak
Many in the Church contribute financially to the running of the church.
This isn't just to support the good work we do in supporting your spiritual growth and community action. We also believe it's a principle taught in the Bible that we should give our income to the work of the Church.
In much of the Old Testament God's people were taught to give a tithe (10% of their income). When Jesus came He went even more radical and told people to give away all they had (Matthew 19:21).
2 Corinthians 9:7 says "Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
We don't mind what you give, but give it cheerfully and not under compulsion.
