Young Gospel Partner Account
Helping the next generation steward their money for Kingdom purposes.
Designed for children and young people, this account encourages positive habits of saving for the future whilst creating the opportunity to learn how money can be used to share the gospel. Accounts are opened under the oversight of parents, grandparents or guardians.
The interest rate is a bank managed rate of 1.20% Gross/AER.
Interest accrues on the daily balance at the above rate. This rate may vary from time to time and we will notify you of any changes.
Interest is added to or deducted from the account on the 31 December each year.
As this account pays a variable rate of interest, it can change over time – the general terms and conditions explain how this happens. We will always let you know of any planned changes to the rate. For example, we may review our interest rates if the Bank of England base rate changes.
If you deposit £1,000 when you open the account, the balance after 12 months will be £1,012.00
