Icon of Lydia of Thyatira, the first European convert to Christianity
'Giving is a spiritual discipline. We don’t give because ‘the church needs it’, rather we give because it intentionally introduces our relationship with God into our relationship with money. The church is not just another charity that needs our support, nor is it a club with a discretionary membership fee. Rather, it is the accountable community through which we give to God in response to the God’s gracious gifts to us.'
Simon Woodman preaching at Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church, 8th May 2022.
