Although public worship at Christ Church is restricted, there are still significant bills to pay. The good news is, regular giving at Christ Church via standing orders and planned giving envelopes has, to a large extent, been sustained. A big thank you to everyone for this fantastic effort.
Unfortunately, other sources of income have reduced significantly or dried up completely e.g., there will be no Spring Fayre again this year, and possibly no Christmas Fayre either. Therefore, if you normally make your offering via the envelope scheme or by placing cash on the collection plate, please consider setting up a standing order or making a bank transfer (contact Revd Dave). Otherwise, if you can do so safely, please drop your offering through the Vicarage letter box. (NB setting up a standing order or making a bank transfer does not involve giving us your bank details.) And, if you can afford to make a special donation, please consider doing so!
‘The point is this: the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work.’ (2 Corinthians 9:6-8)
