 Paying for our work in Christ’s Name  The PCC had a challenging meeting in December when we considered our response to our financial situation.   We will be looking to how we can better communicate the costs of our ministry.  In 2019 the church had a loss of nearly £30,000. Thankfully we have reserves to cover, though this cannot continue for much longer) With a potential greater loss this coming year we must raise our regular giving and reduce our costs.  This requires some serious reflection by each of us

Prayers and Support for the Homeless and Vulnerable  In this winter season, as a Church we provide hospitality in various ways for those who would otherwise be without a place to sleep, food, etc.  We are being stretched in various ways as we reach out with the love that God has for us.  Our generosity comes from knowing a generous God
