Church financial situation

Since the start of the pandemic, QRBC (like most charities and organisations) has been through some difficult financial challenges. We are extremely grateful to everyone who has given generously to church funds during this period, and to those who have donated their time and energy to help us control our costs - the result of which is that the church has maintained a stable (if depleted) financial reserve through this year.  

At our last church meeting, the membership approved a budget for 2022 based on continued giving at the level we received in 2021 - this allows us to continue with a minimal level of activity without depleting our funds further. However, there is much more that we would like to do as we look to the future. We trust that God will provide for us as we seek to discover his will for our fellowship in the future - as we do this, we ask all those who call Queens Road their church to consider prayerfully how they can financially support our activities and help us develop them into the future. 

For more information about our finances and the way we spend the generous gifts from our Fellowship, please contact Jon White (email:treasurer@qrbc.co.uk) or see below for more information about ways to give.

 Thankyou!

Ways to give

Sunday Offertory– if you usually give your gift on a Sunday in the offertory plate  we now invite you to consider one of the following, this is of course, if you are in a position to do so.

- Set up a standing order  (Sort Code  40-52-40, Account Number 00019973)

- Make a one off payment direct into the church’s bank  account  (Sort Code  40-52-40, Account Number 00019973). If your gift is for a specific purpose please email us to ensure it is used as you wish

- Use your debit or credit card and click "donate now".  (A small charge is deducted from your donation by the card processing company)

Gift Aid is a scheme which allows charities to claim from HMRC, the basic rate of tax their donors have paid. Gift Aid increases the value of donations by 25%, so it means even more money goes to the church– and it won’t cost you extra. The church can only claim Gift Aid on monetary donations from your own funds, and if you’ve paid UK Income and / or Capital Gains Tax during that tax year. The tax you pay in that tax year must be at least equal to the value of Gift Aid the charity will claim on your donation(s). You can download a Gift Aid form here

Thank you very much for considering this information.
