This Thursday 23rd January 2020 at 7pm till 8.30pm in

the Church Hall.

As a church we rely completely on donations, from you

the congregation and from fundraising.  The PCC has

already looked at some material (called: Giving for

Life) produced by the Church of England to help

parishes be good stewards of their income and how to

engage the whole congregation in the debate.  So, we

want to share this with the whole Church family.

Did you know that our weekly bill to keep our building  

open is about £1,616(that is per week!!) Perhaps you

give weekly, if you pay income tax do you use the white

gift aid envelopes, or give by standing order? By the

way the pink envelopes should only be used for one off

donation or by visitors. Some churches have put card

machines to make is easier for people to donate, what

do you think about this?  

There are other ideas such as encouraging an annual

review of our personal giving and of tithing or perhaps

bequeathing a donation in your will. Perhaps you have

a new and innovative idea about how we can raise

funds, perhaps you know of a grant that we can apply

for. Perhaps you have a question, whatever it is…

 

…come along to the hall to join in the discussion!
