Finances and Giving
Our Budget Policies
Our financial policy is based upon the Biblical principle of generosity. Members give a generous portion of their income to advance gospel ministry as a sign of their gratitude to God for what he has done for them. We as a church, endeavour to be generous in our support of Christian ministry worldwide. We give away at least 11% of our income to ministry outside our church. 10% of all money we receive goes to the denomination and another 2% of all income is given to social concerns. The balance of the money is used to fund gospel ministry locally at St Stephens.
We follow a policy of strict accountability and integrity in the matter of money. Our financial statements are open documents and are available at any time for anyone to inspect. Our policy is for our financial affairs to be audited annually.
