The PCC of St James’ resolved many years ago to donate at least 10% of all disposable income to charities, in line with the biblical principles of tithing, and secure in the knowledge that the Lord will provide.  See Luke 12: 22 – 34.  We believe that this extends to time and talents, as well as finance and worldly goods.  See Matthew 25: 31 – 46.  “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”

And Luke 21: ‘As he looked up, Jesus saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow putting in two very small copper coins. “I tell you the truth,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”
