NUCU

Giving

The work of the CU continues because of financial support mainly from its members, as well as external gifts from our supporters.

Why should we give?

Because God has given so much to us! Giving shouldn’t be about earning brownie points with God, or as an obligation. God gave His Son to die for us and we can know the free grace of God. In response, the Bible calls us to live lives of sacrifice to Him. To give all we have (including our money) for the glory of our God.

How should we give?

“not reluctantly, or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7) The Bible teaches us to give in faith, joyfully, out of a commitment to Jesus Christ.

What should we give?

The actual amount isn’t as important as the heart that gives it (remember the poor widow in Mark 12), but even poor students can give to God’s work! Pray about what you can give, and study what the Scriptures say about money (such as the example of the Macedonians in 2 Cor 8, Paul’s instructions on giving in 2 Cor 9:6-15, or Jesus’ teaching about money in Matt 6:19-20, 24). The biblical pattern is for regular, generous giving, flowing from a love for God.

How can we give to NUCU?

If you’re a member of the CU, we hold termly Gift Days when you can give. To find out the date of the next one, see the calendar. However, anyone can give at any time to NUCU by giving a cheque made payable to 'U of N SU CU' and handing it to Hannah or sending it to “The Treasurer, Nottingham University Christian Union, Portland Building, University Park, Nottingham, NG7 2RD”.
