25o years of thankfulness

Everything we have is a gift from God

Gold Hill Baptist Church was founded in 1774 in the Mill House near the Church Lane car park.  We are grateful to God that we can continue the adventure started by our predecessors 250 years ago.  In 2021, we moved into the Hub, increasing the opportunities we have to help our local community.  In 2024, we plan to buy a house to provide a home for our Pastor Team Leader. We give thanks for the generosity of those who have provided finance to make all this possible.

We believe that since everything comes from God, it is right for us to give back to God with our time, our energy and our finance.

Do you want to give to Gold Hill?

It is most helpful to us if you can commit to give a regular monthly amount to the General Fund. This enables our finance team to plan and budget.

You can use online banking to set up a standing order payable to:

Gold Hill Church Trust
Sort Code: 20-02-06
Account No: 80433152

If you don’t use online banking, then you can download a standing order here or pick up a paper standing order at the Hub reception desk. This can either be sent to your bank, or brought to the Hub in an envelope marked “Confidential – for the attention of Chris Gledhill”.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, we can reclaim the tax element of your gift, meaning we get an extra 25p for every £1 you give. Gift Aid makes a huge contribution to the church’s income.  To set up Gift Aid, please click the button.

If you prefer to use a printed Gift Aid form, you can download it here or pick one up at The Hub.  The printed form should be brought to the Hub in an envelope marked “Confidential – for the attention of Chris Gledhill”

If you pay us electronically, please include your name in the reference so we can identify payments for Gift Aid purposes.

If you don’t use online banking, then you can donate us by debit or credit card, by clicking this button or using one of the card machines in the Hub.

We also take a cash offering during our Sunday gatherings at The Hub.

Note that Gold Hill pays a handling charge for card payments, which is not the case for standing orders or transfers directly between bank accounts.

Designated Giving

By default, gifts are allocated to the General Fund.  You can choose to designate your gifts for other funds including:

  • Heart, Hub, Home to service and/or reduce the loan for the Hub
  • Fellowship Fund, which is used to support members of the church family who are in need.
  • Manse, which is used to support the purchase of a home for our Pastor Team Leader.

Give as you Live

You can also give to Gold Hill without it costing you at all! We are registered with ‘Give as you Live’, which means you can sign up for Gold Hill to raise money each time you make a purchase online with any of over 6,000 shops and organisations. So if you regularly shop online and can sign up, it can really make a difference to us without costing you a thing.
