We don’t see church as a spectator sport. We’re a community, people working together for God and his world. This extends to everything we do – and that includes the day-to-day financial realities of our work together, resourcing projects both inside and outside of the church.
If you’re a visitor, you’ll never be pressured to give money to the church. You are welcome to donate if you are moved to do so, but you won’t ever leave a service feeling like you’ve been given the hard-sell.
Anyone committed to the HCC community is encouraged to participate in regular financial giving. It’s not just about making sure our bills are paid and God’s work is financed; it’s about acting out what our church is all about – joining together in a shared vision. Giving to the work of the local church is one of the ways we worship God – and an exciting act of holy rebellion in a world that prioritises personal wealth above all other pursuits.
HCC manages its finances with integrity and accountability – those who give can be confident that their money is being put to good work. Occasionally, we present opportunities to invest in one-off needs and new projects. Watch our website and stay tuned to HCC news for when these special projects arise.
How to give

If you pay tax in the UK, we can claim tax back on anything you give to the church. This means the government tops up any amount you give, at no cost to yourself. Fill out the Gift Aid Declaration on the form below. It makes a massive difference!GIFT AID & STANDING ORDER FORM
