Contributing financially to the work of God’s kingdom is one of the cornerstones of our Christian faith.
By giving to the Church you enable us to fulfil the vision that we believe God has set before us. The donations you make will contribute towards general running expenses of the Church, including staffing, equipment and resources for our Church programs and in the wider community, locally and globally.
South West Baptist Church is a registered charity under the Charities Act 2005.
We encourage those who are regularly making donations to the Church to obtain a donation number, which will enable us to give you a tax receipt at the end of the financial year. Please include your donation number with all your payments to ensure you receive your tax receipt. Currently the IRD allows you to claim a portion of this back by filing a Tax credit claim form (IR526). For a donation number, please contact Reception. Requesting a donation number does not automatically make you a member of the church. If you’d like to know more about membership or to check if you are a member, click here.

We appreciate the generosity of God’s people, and will continue to seek to be good stewards of the resources God has entrusted to us.
