Giving for Mission and Ministry in 2018 – download leaflet here
Message from the Churchwardens
We recognise that Christian stewardship is one of the most basic expressions of discipleship, and that financial resources are necessary for God’s mission here and across the world.
Last year we balanced our books as a result of the congregation’s generous response to our Gift Day. This year it is our aim to put the parish on a firmer financial footing by addressing the budget shortfall much earlier in the year and in a more sustainable manner. Please take a look at the stewardship leaflet which outlines the parish budget for 2018, and also the information on the new Parish Giving Scheme, which simplifies parish administration and most significantly provides you with the option to index-link your giving.
We ask our congregation members to give prayerful consideration as to how they can help the parish meets it financial needs in the year ahead, and to:
- Review and where possible increase their regular contribution.
- Sign up to the new Church of England Parish Giving Scheme – information packs and forms can be found in both churches and are available from the parish office.
Yours in Christ,
Dorothea Nattrass and Robert Fox
