Giving to St James
Our reason for giving at St James’ is simple and Biblical; we want to be followers of Jesus and to see lives transformed through Jesus Christ.
We recognise that transformation is a life-long process for all of us and that we partner with God to enable His transformation in ourselves, those around us, our local community and throughout the world.
We seek to be guided by the two 'great' sayings of Jesus; the greatest commandment and the great commission:
'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.
And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.' Matt 22:37-38
'Go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.' Matt 28:19-20
Local Community (What we do)
As a church family we seek to do justice, love kindness, and to walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8). In this way we desire to see everyone in Devizes and the surrounding area flourish.
Alongside the work we do in Devizes, we support mission partners who serve God across the globe desiring to see justice and love spread across the world in the name of Jesus Christ. As part of our support, as a church, we give away 10% of what is given to us to our mission partners:
