Over the next few weeks we are communicating with each of our congregations about the ongoing offertory trend during 2017. To put it plainly, we are on track to be around 10% below our budget by the end of 2017. As explained in a letter from our treasurer and myself, if this trend is not reversed, it will begin to effect our ministries during 2018 and beyond.
This year has seen connections with new people, growth in our congregations, and a number of new ministries commenced. You can read about some of these stories here. In response we are inviting our church family to contribute a one-off gift in our back on budget appeal. Further information about financial partnership is available on this page.
