“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7
At St Matthew, we practice joyful giving. We encourage members to grow in generosity, because giving as a spiritual practice leads to greater gratitude and fulfilment.
