The Financial Need

Christ Church Mayfair is entirely funded through a charitable trust (The Bible Talks Trust, registered charity no. 1092036) and does not receive any funding from the Church of England or any other external source.

All of our ministry, in London and further afield is entirely reliant on the giving of our church members.

We encourage all those who consider themselves committed members of the Christ Church family to carefully consider their response to supporting the ongoing needs of the church.  Tax refunds from donations made under Gift Aid are an important source of funding so givers who pay tax are strongly encouraged to contact us for a form to enable the church to claim back the tax. We receive no income from the Church of England.

Our money gets spent across the range of ministries in ways and amounts which are monitored and controlled by the Church Treasurer and Elders, and the Trustees of The Bible Talks Trust. This constant review, as well as the presentation and publication of accounts once per year ensures we do our best to honour God with the way in which our resources are spent.
Our highest area of expenditure is staffing costs (including support for Ministry Trainees or apprentices). Together support for other congregations (including The Bridge, Battersea) and giving outside the church e.g. to mission partners constitute the second largest part of expenditure, with outlay on buildings/equipment making up the balance.
