A message from Reverend Carol Hayden:

Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion for God loves a cheerful giver. Corinthians 9:7

Generosity is at the heart of our faith; we believe in a generous God and our own generosity is a testament and hallmark of our faith in action.

For the first time in my 3 years here I am asking you all to re-evaluate your giving to the church, myself included. I have a vision of Church Council meetings where the question “can we afford…?” and phrases like “budget deficit” and “balance the books” are never heard again. A vision of a parish with a passion for mission, debating how best we can use the finances God has placed amongst his people.
