Volunteer

Paul suggests, in Romans 12:1, that the very best way in which we can honour and worship God is by offering ourselves as a “living sacrifice to Him” in service and life.

There are so many areas here at Holy Trinity Church where you can  exercise your gifts and talents and you will find a list of suggestions on the Time and Talents form.

  • Pray faithfully and fervently before the Lord for direction on how you  should respond to this annual appeal for a new commitment. There is  much to be done in our community and beyond to ensure that the  Gospel, imperative to bring all to Christ, is fulfilled within our ministry  as a parish. 
  • If you need help in filling out your forms, or advice on where your  talents and gifts could best be used, please don’t hesitate to contact  one of the clergy or phone through to the parish office on 041 585 2437.  
  • By making a monthly, weekly or annual contribution to the work of Holy  Trinity Church you will be investing in God’s own work here on earth. 
  • Here’s a wonderful passage (2 Cor 8:1-7) on which to meditate as you  decide how much you are able to give back to God:- 
  1. And now, we want you to know about the grace that God has given the  Macedonian churches.
  2. Out of the most severe trial, their overflowing joy and  their extreme poverty, welled up in rich generosity.
  3. For I testify that they  gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on  their own,
  4. they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this  service to the saints.
  5. And they did not do as we expected, but they gave  themselves first to the Lord and then to us in keeping with God’s will.
  6. So we  urged Titus, since he had earlier made a beginning, to bring also to completion  this act of grace on your part.
  7. But just as you excel in everything — in faith,  in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us – see  that you also excel in this grace of giving.

What does the Bible teach us about giving?

Read: -Malachi 3:6-12 -Matthew 22:21 -Luke 12:21 -2 Corinthians 8 & 9

• We are encouraged to bring our full tithe (the first tenth) of what we earn/have into the storehouse (the local church where we worship.)
• More than a tithe, we are encouraged to give as an offering towards various projects.
• We are encouraged to be generous in our giving towards the Lord and His work.
• We are taught through Holy Scripture to give from what we have and not from what we do not have.
• Committing to a planned and ordered Dedicated Giving programme en-ables the parish to budget carefully and efficiently towards the goals laid out on the previous page.

Giving results in thanksgiving and blessing as the Church reaches out to its own community and to all who are in need around us—
to the very ends of the earth!
