God Our Father
Help us to think more of what we can give to life and less of what we can get out of it.
May we be mindful that we hold our gifts, our talents, our possessions, our life itself, in trust for You and the service of mankind.
Save us from thinking only of our own needs and desires; and help us to remember that it is more blessed to give than to receive, according to the teaching of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
In the coming year we hope to:
sustain our church building – a sacred space
complete the church hall.
To fulfil this vision,
EACH WEEK WE WILL SPEND:
£841 on our share of clergy costs: stipend, housing, training, etc.
£509 on our building: insurance, heat, light, etc.
£337 on worship and ministry: for our congregation and wider community, including our hall
£219 on ministry plans for this year
EACH WEEK WE WILL NEED:
£1270 from regular congregational giving
£363 from HMRC for Gift Aided giving and donations
£49 from fees: weddings, funerals, etc.
£39 from the Reading Room, our fundraising and other income streams
Thank you for helping to make this happen!
To cultivate what St Paul calls the grace of giving, we need to think carefully about all we receive from God and prayerfully review our giving.
Our church needs £1752 per week in 2016 to sustain our building and our clergy, our ministry and mission.
To bridge our £400 income gap and for our ministry to flourish we need the grace of giving.
