At Gateway, we teach the biblical principle of stewardship. We believe that everything we have belongs to God and we are only looking after, or are stewards of, what He has given us. It is with this in mind that we encourage people who call Gateway their home to give regularly and generously in proportion to their income.
It is our practice to take an offering at every Sunday meeting. However, many give directly from their bank account by regular Standing Order. Tithing (giving 10% of our income) is a commitment that many of us at Gateway have decided to undertake.
As mentioned above, we ask all those who call Gateway their ‘home’ to prayerfully consider the amount that they give regularly – and to review that sum as their situation may change. Responsible, joyful giving is one of the marks of a believer!
