Forward Together In Faith
Thank you to all who continue to support our
funds especially the Refurbishment Fund. As
you know only too well we are still under
pressure to reach our target for this particular
fund which is now approximately £57,000.00
per year. This is made up of two payments to
the Presbyterian Mutual Society and twelve
monthly payments to the Ulster Bank along
with bank charges etc.
To 31st August 2015 we have brought in
£30,433.48 and with an opening balance in the
bank of £4,734.35 gives us a total to date of
£35,167.83. This means we need to raise
around £21,800.00 over the next 4 months.
Giving through envelopes and standing orders
has gradually decreased over the last few years
and whilst there may be many reasons for this may we please encourage you if you are not supporting the Refurbishment Fund to consider doing so.
Another very simple way of supporting it, if you are already contributing, is to complete a Gift Aid form allowing us to claim tax on all that you have given. For you to complete a Gift Aid form you must be a tax payer. If you hold a joint envelope with a spouse we only require one Gift Aid form to be completed by one taxpayer in the family.
We continue with our Cash for Clobber throughout the year which has proved very
successful and if you, your family or friends have any old clothes, shoes, bags, belts, duvet
covers, towels etc please leave them up to the Church or alternatively we can arrange to have
We also continue to distribute Smartie tubes twice a year.
We will again be doing our ‘Count Your Blessings’ fundraiser over the Advent period and again your support in this, as
with all our fundraisers, would be greatly appreciated.
We are always looking for new ideas for fundraising so if you have any suggestions please get in touch with me (Barbara Thompson).
Again we want to thank all who have supported the Refurbishment Fund and Church in general.
Along with your continued financial support please continue to pray for us as a Church here in North Belfast.
