Outward Giving

"Freely you have received; freely give."

Matthew 10 v 8


Living generously and giving to those in need is an essential part of the Christian life. We have received so much from God that we can have no response than to give of our time, talents and money. 

Each year, we aspire to give 10% of each year’s regular giving, including tax recovery, to charitable causes and through our outward giving, the church models good practice for Christians. In doing so collectively as a church, we can build partnerships in ways that individuals may not be able to do on their own. These relationships are maintained by our Parish Links (two for each organisation) and we enjoy welcoming representatives who come to tell us about their work.

Some insights into the six organisations we have chosen to support financially until 2025, and others we help, are set out below.

The Bible Society

The Bible Society works to make the Bible available, relevant and credible in widely differing cultures. Scriptures are translated and distributed in 2,261 languages. Scripture cassettes "Faith comes by hearing" allow fresh encounters with the Bible. Testimonies and dramatised Scriptures can be heard on some radios and in Asia a CD ROM has been produced in eleven indigenous languages. Films on the life of Jesus have been produced and are available in many countries including Britain, which is now considered as needing missionary help by the Bible Society.

Christians Against Poverty (CAP)

CAP provides free debt help and supports local community groups across the UK. Operating through local churches, it provides practical and emotional support, showing people that there is always hope. Supported by paid employees, teams of local volunteers provide debt counselling, job clubs, life skills and release groups. While this is a national organisation, our support is targeted at their local operation which is very active on Mole Valley, benefitting both individuals and families.

Christian Solidarity Worldwide

Based in the UK, CSW works in the pursuit of justice for worldwide religious freedom and human rights, providing support for church leaders who are oppressed.  Aiming to bring lasting cultural, social and political change to governments in the UK, overseas, United Nations and European Union, it lobbies governments using research, advocacy and petitions to influence the legislation, policies, attitudes and behaviours that reinforce religious discrimination and persecution. Their work is underpinned by strong prayer backing around the world, often focusing on particular people in crisis.

An Anglican charity supporting the spiritual, moral and physical well-being of the world’s 1.5 million seafarers and their families.

St Nicolas also supports other charities in bespoke ways. In particular, through food donations to LeatherHEAD Start, fund raising and other activities for Fairtrade, The Meeting Place and Christian Aid. We also help raise money for occasional special appeals.

Transform Trade

Formerly TraidCraft, Transform Trade work to tackle poverty through trade.  Their vision is a world where all trade is just and there is no more poverty.  They work for this by helping people to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to set up businesses which can support them.  All the projects supported have both social and business aims which seek to benefit whole communities and not just individuals.  They also campaign against unfair trade in the UK and lobby both policy makers  for changes in law and businesses to pay fair prices (which means wages which their producers can actually live on.)

The Leatherhead Night Hostel first opened in 1977, formed by the Leatherhead Council of Churches as a hostel for homeless people. In partnership with Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) and generous local donor, a major upgrade was carried out in 2008. The renamed LeatherHEAD START’s mission is to provide secure and comfortable temporary accommodation for homeless people and to help residents improve their life skills and abilities to enable them to move back into the mainstream community.
