Financing the project

next steps

How can we finance the work?

While we have a great financial start already, we believe God will provide what is needed through His people. All these sources will play a part in us reaching our goal.

  1. Gifts and regular giving from the church family (remember GiftAid)bouton donate online
  2. Gifts from friends of the church
  3. Fundraising (remember Easyfundraising and Amazon Smile too)
  4. Grants
  5. Loan from the BUC (Baptist Union Corporation)
  6. Loans from the church family
  7. Non-financial giving

A letter has been sent to all the church family explaining the estimated costs of the plans and the way to contribute in more detail. If you think you can help and want to know more, a copy can be downloaded here.

If you want to make a regular payment please contact our treasurer, Peter Thatcher by clicking here and instructions on setting up a standing order will be emailed to you.


What might the work cost?

The initial estimated costs of the work is just over £500,000 although this will depend on the final agreed plans.

We plan to reduce the building costs by carrying out certain works ourselves, particularly in the rear rooms, and hopefully to remove the organ at no cost to ourselves. Also as the church is a listed building, we hope to be able to reclaim much of the VAT incurred at a later date.

Ever since the first meeting house when the people of Bluntisham stepped out in faith, God has miraculously provided! Our church has indeed seen God provide in numerous ways over that time. As we step out in faith on this project, we trust that the church family demonstrates its generosity and commitment to seeing the vision realised.
