On Sunday 10th September we started our annual stewardship campaign. The aim of this is to, firstly, thank everyone for their financial support, encouragement and practical help throughout the year which allows us to maintain a strong Christian presence in Old Town and beyond.
Secondly it is to let everyone know how this work is funded and how we spend our resources.
Thirdly to ask our friends to prayerfully review their annual giving to the church – this will help us to prepare our budget for the coming year.
Stewardship packs have been addressed to all those who are registered on the church electoral roll but of course anyone who values or wishes to support the work of the church is welcome to contribute.
Where possible, we encourage regular giving by standing order through your bank – this allows us to manage our finances more efficiently and predictably as well as greatly reducing administration. The Stewardship pack includes a standing order form which can be completed and returned to your bank. This can also be used to increase an existing standing order ( please note the section on the form which is used to cancel an existing standing order). You can also download a standing order form here. However you choose to support our work you can find out more on our website here or from our Gift Aid Secretary Stephen Grosvenor ( firstname.lastname@example.org or 01793 341034).
