Giving to the church.
GIVING IN GRACE
People think that giving to the Church is all about giving money. It is, but it is also about giving the God given talents you can offer to the Church.
The Church need volunteers with lots of different talents to help with the many activities and jobs that need to be done to keep the Church running smoothly and to fulfil the mission of the Church.
The Church does also need money to maintain the Church buildings, pay staffing costs, support the work of the Diocese, plus every day bills like the electricity and so on and so on.
If you would like to offer your gifts and talents then you need to speak to the vicar or one of the churchwardens to talk through what exactly God is calling you to do in his Church
If you would like to give money then are a number of ways you can do that:
by monthly direct debit – this is an easy way to give and the Church can budget knowing regular income will be coming in.
by weekly envelopes – some people prefer to give in Church and place something on the plate. The weekly scheme does help the Church to budget. If you want to become involved in this scheme please contact the Margaret Sharples
by placing money on the plate in Church. This does help to support the Church's mission
