After our Committee meeting this week we realise that everyone has extra demands upon their finances, but it also means that Church expenses have increased significantly over the last year. We have taken a number of measures to reduce our expenditure but giving has also decreased over the last year. We have four months before the year end to address this and would ask you to prayerfully consider your response. The offering each week is received before and after the service via the plates in the vestibule or by transfer into the main Church account no. 71013858 Sort Code 95-04-28
