In consultation with the churchwardens and treasurer, and in cooperation with the Standing Committee of the PCC Fr Alaric would like to make some information available to you on ways in which you can continue to support the important witness of St George Tombland. Several options have been provided.
The Rector writes:
1. You could set your offering aside each week and when restrictions are lifted you can bring in what you've gathered, or, if you're mobile and in Norwich, and don't want to have cash lying around, you could drop the offering through the mail slot of the Rectory and I'll make sure it gets banked. Please ring or email for guidance (phone numbers are in the contacts section of this website).
2. You could set up a standing order. There is a form attached to this page which will help with this. If you have problems with printing you could let our treasurer Gail Woods know and she would be happy to print out a form and post it to you. If you need a hand with this, Gail would be happy to speak with you.
3. You could do a one-off payment. Our bank details are:
Lloyds Bank plc, Norwich Branch:
Sort code: 30-96-17
Account No: 02042253
Account: St George Tombland Current Acc
4. You could post a cheque to Gail's address and she will see that it gets banked. If you don't have her address please ask.
I know that this is a difficult time for many people, and the anxiety that is arising because of the possibility of a rather extended lockdown is high. Please, please hear me when I say: if you are currently having any financial difficulty, please take care of yourselves and leave any contribution to the church until you are in a better position to contribute; those of us who are more secure can certainly look out for the more financially vulnerable in our midst. But, of course, anything you can do would be appreciated.
If you have any questions or if there is any way I can be of help, please feel free to ring me or drop me an email. Please know how much you are in my prayers, and how I long to worship with you once again in our beautiful church. It is a privilege and a great source of personal joy for me to be your priest, and I am so very grateful that, even if we are separated at the moment, we are still connected in prayer and in our common love for God. May this connection and love strengthen us all.
