Worship in giving




Ways to give:

Some have been asking how they can give to the Lord during this time of Covid 19 restrictions when we cannot meet.

A few thoughts: Giving to the Lord is not to be about pressure or obligation. Worship in giving should come from a heart that loves God and cheerfully wants to give with generosity, remembering all that Jesus has given to us.

2 Corinthians 8:7-9    “– see that you also excel in the grace of giving … For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich.”

2 Corinthians 9:7    “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”


Giving is a matter of your own heart before God.

Remember that, in DBC, we do not track who gives and how much they give.

Many of us already give regularly through a standing order set up with the bank. This can be done through online banking or at your local branch.

If you’re wondering how to give during this time; we’d suggest 3 possibilities for those who’d like to give:

  • Option 1: Set up a regular standing order (weekly/monthly) with online banking. Or, do so by going in to your bank to set up a standing order. (bank details below)

  • Option 2: You can make individual deposits at your local branch to the DBC bank account as you wish. (details below)

  • Option 3: If online banking or a visit to your bank is not an option for you at the moment; you could simply set aside the money weekly/monthly for the time being and then bring it to church; giving when restrictions are eventually lifted. This option would be a bit like following along the lines of the instruction that Paul gave to the Corinthian church:   “On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with your income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.” 1 Corinthians 16:2
