Can we contribute financially to the ministry?
Yes! That would be great! Thanks! All this activity does need finance and there are costs that we need to cover to run CBS UK. Usually, classes and churches make a contribution to the national body so we can continue and extend the work. Classes collect week by week and send the donation 3 times a year. Churches usually donate when they receive new materials.
How can I give?
You can give through your class or you can give directly:
You can email us and we will send you our bank details so you can make a BACS transfer and avoid banking charges.
You can mail a cheque made to “CBSI UK” to us at this address: CBS UK 6 Warren Lane Witham St Hughs Lincoln LN6 9US
What costs do you have?
The costs which relate to class rent, heating, printing, refreshments etc.
Costs which relate to the wider ministry in the UK. These fall into 2 main areas:
- Promoting Bible Study, training of leaders and helping them start new classes.
- Supporting existing classes through our regional network and annual conference.
None of our CBS volunteers, locally or nationally, receive any payment for their time and work, just expenses. Only our part-time National Administrator is paid, so all your money goes to the coal face work!
Each class and the national ministry is financially supported by the contributions of class members.
How much should I give?
There is no set charge for the course and giving in CBS is voluntary so that class members who find it difficult to contribute may still attend. As a guideline only, we suggest a registration fee of £8.00 annually and a weekly donation of what it would cost you to have a cup of coffee out…around £2.00 a week.
Many church groups, rather than charging their members, prefer to make a regular donation large or small to help us continue to grow the ministry of CBS. Either way, we are grateful to God for your fellowship in giving.
Can I Gift Aid my donation?
Since CBS is a registered charity, we also offer the option of Gift Aid for your donations (but not the registration fee). Here you can download a Gift Aid form.
