How Severn Vineyard church is funded
As a charity, Severn is funded entirely by donations from a growing bunch of people who are excited by the vision and want to help make it a reality.
But for many donors, it's more than that - there's this deep passion that everything they have is entrusted to them and provided for them by God. So for many people, giving a portion of what he has given them for the purpose of the church is an act of trust and recognition that God is the source of all wealth and opportunities that bring that wealth.
Historically, people in the Bible would use a tenth (where we get the word tithe from) of their annual income as a starting point for their regular giving, but would often add to that with one-off donations for specific purposes. We know that communities where this happened were able to function effectively and it seems that the same is true of churches today.
