Tithe Grants

Each year Holy Trinity Church gives away a tithe – 10% – of the income we receive from voluntary donations and fundraising. 

The money is an expression of Christian mission. We use guidelines set by the DCC some years ago to ensure that the money is divided between local and international charities, and between partner charities (which we give to for several years and build a relationship with) and one-off good causes.
