A Message from the Treasurer

Gift Day Feedback

Thank you to everyone who has returned their updated pledge and all who are currently supporting the Church financially. Without your generosity we would not be able to continue and grow the ministry. The response to the financial appeal has been very encouraging as we have now covered the reduction in income that I spoke about in my October letter. So regular giving that is pledged for 2017 is now the same as the expected income for 2016 having recovered the £30K (000’s pounds) reduction (a forecast total of £679K including tax refund).

The PCC has now approved the budget for 2017 which is showing a £32K deficit. We have additionally agreed to advertise a new post in January for a Community Pastor in order to grow our outward focus and restore the leadership team back towards previous levels. In the short term we will use some of our cash reserves to fund these additional costs but we are looking to grow our income over the coming year as we look to grow the ministry.

If you are not already giving financially and would like to do so please contact me at treasurer@stjohns-church.co.uk

Please continue to pray for the finances and for God’s provision in the coming months.

Thank you

David Harvey
