Where our money comes from and where it goes
We’re a charity relying on generous donations from our church members for most of the income that is spent on regular ministry.
What can church members do?
Over 2300 verses in the Bible refer to money, wealth and possessions. Jesus talked about them frequently and over a third of his parables involved these topics. So we’re not embarrassed to raise the issue and we hope you’ll want to take part. If you don’t regularly contribute to the work of St Michael’s, we hope you’ll join in. And if you’re already a member of our Planned Giving Scheme, we hope you’ll review your giving.
Without an increase in our giving, it won’t be possible to achieve all that we want.
There are five things you can consider right now:
Give within the service via a giving envelope. Please make any cheques payable to “St Michael’s PCC No.2 Acc”.
