Jesus is Lord

Gospel ministry happens through the faithful service of our church family, underpinned by prayer and in dependence on our generous, loving, heavenly Father. Through practical service and financial giving, supported by prayer, we all have the joy of seeing God’s kingdom grow as we minister to one another, support the wider mission of the Church of England and support our Mission Partners internationally.


Everything we have is from God

(1 Timothy 6:17)

What we can give, and those to whom we give, is a personal matter (2 Corinthians 9:6,7). We can have confidence that ‘God loves a cheerful giver’ and ‘God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.’ (2 Corinthians 9:8). Giving results in ‘thanksgiving to God.’ (2 Corinthians 9:11).


Ways of giving

We are very grateful for those who give to the ministry of St. Leonard’s, not only with money but also with their time. Having read this you may want to give more or to start giving for the first time.

Giving your time

Please get in touch with the Church Office, or if you are part of a small group speak to your group leader, about how you can use your time in God’s service.

Giving financially

Our annual budget relies on contributions that work out at £20 per person per week. More information on our budget is available from the Church Office/Treasurer.  If you would like to support us financially there are two options:- 

  • The PCC fund: Money given to the PCC supports ministry at St Leonards, the wider C of E, our Mission Partners and pays for the upkeep of the buildings.
  • The Larkbeare Christian Trust (an independent charity) which gives money to the PCC to support the work of non-ordained staff and gospel ministry at St Leonards, including our Ministry Assistant Programme.  Please click the link for further details.
