Thank you for your interest in supporting Gospel ministry here at Deane Church
We are committed to being good stewards of the resources which God gives to us. We recognise that everything that we have comes from God, and we seek to give it back to him in ways which bear fruit for his Kingdom.
The majority of the income that we receive comes from direct giving from the Church family, other donations, any legacies that we receive, and Gift Aid that we are able to claim on donations.
In recent years we have also successfully applied for some grant funding for two specific purposes:
- the funding of a Youth Pastor post
- some essential work on our Grade 2* listed building to renew the rainwater gutters and drainage.
We will always seek to invest more in people and mission, than in buildings. Having said that we recognise our responsibility in maintaining the 2* listed building which is in our care, and we work hard to do what we can to take care of the building.
Our aim would be to increase our giving to mission and charities. We don't believe that our current 1% is a reflection of the worldwide mission of the church, of which we are a part.
We are always working towards paying the amount that Manchester Diocese ask from us each year, in full. In some years we have been able to achieve that, and we will continue working towards that aim.

How can you join with us?
We would really value your prayers. Have a look at our weekly news sheet to see what is going on. Your prayers for any of those groups / ministries / events would be fantastic, because without them it is just activity!
Please pray that we will continue to be obedient and faithful to God in all that we do, and all the decisions that we make.
Regular giving is an invaluable source of income for us. The various ministries at Deane are funded almost entirely by donations.

A legacy can make a huge difference to Gospel ministry at Deane and make an eternal difference in the lives of a great many people. Now that is a legacy worth leaving!
We've developed a policy on how we will use any gifts left to us in this way. We want you to know that we will use gifts left in a will for special projects, and not just for regular upkeep and maintenance, but also that we will respect any particular wishes and interests that you have in the way we use the money left to us.
