We are facing a bleak financial outlook as a Parish because of the impact of Coronavirus on our life together as church. This is in part due to the loss of income from hall bookings etc but also because the usual giving that many make through the envelope scheme or on the plate is not coming in whilst we are unable to meet to worship.
Whilst our income is going down the bills and expenses continue to come in. It is hard to project quite how bad this will be as we don’t know how long worship will be suspended, but every week this goes on and the bigger the gap between income and expenditure. I’d like to ask all of us to review what we are able to give to the work of our local churches and whether we may be able to swap to a form of direct giving to the parish – this could be set up via online or telephone banking if you are self-isolating.
We also accept TEXT GIVING- please click on the window on the homepage for details.
