WAYS TO GIVE
1. TITHE AND OFFERING / DIRECT BANK TRANSFER
We believe in the biblical principles of tithes & offerings: if everyone gives the first 10% (tithe) of their income into the storehouse (church). This provides the resource to create a healthy community and organisation.
Offerings are also optional on top of a tithe.

4. Charity Checkout
* CharityCheckout charges 5% on all donations plus payment processing fees.
Lighthouse receives the funds from CharityCheckout on the 20th of the month following the month the donation was given.
CharityCheckout can not process gift aid for the Lighthouse, however, because their system is "one size fits all", they still keep 5% of the gift aid value, even though they never process it for us.
Gift aid: If you would like to gift aid your donation , please consider another payment (faster payment, standing order, credit card over the phone), or make sure you sign the Gift Aid declaration for the Lighthouse (available on the information desk, or on every giving envelope).
