A message from your Church Treasurer
Making a financial response to our loving God in this crisis
As we move into this time of great uncertainty of this we can be certain – God is sovereign! His Church (those who acknowledge and worship Him) will endure. The institution and physical structures of the church may get battered but we, His people, WILL endure.
This is a particular message to those of you who donate by CASH at services and other events when you attend. Because we are presently unable to meet you will be unable to give in this way. And because we will not be receiving your cash we will not be able to claim any Gift Aid on it. (That is when HM Revenue & Customs add 25% to your cash giving).
The vast majority of our donation income is from monthly Standing Orders direct from the bank accounts of regular worshippers to the CSK bank account. Thank you if you are already one of them. We are relying on you. The great thing is that this comes in regularly and reliably – regardless of the donors actually going to church!
You can see how helpful it would be at the moment if you were able to give this way! Surely we are all relying even more on God at the moment – this is no time to short change Him!
…. and many of us can make our giving go further!
If your income is sufficient to pay income tax then Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs will add 25p to every £1 that you give to CSK at no extra cost to you.
All you need to do is complete and return a Gift Aid Declaration form to us via the church letter box.
Things you might need
CSK cannot do this for you. The CSK Treasurer is Peter Dowman e-mail: [email protected] To contact him by phone dial 01733 240 196 (the Vicarage) and leave a message. He will phone you back.
Connecting with Jesus … Making Him known
Other things we are doing
Be assured that we are doing all that we can to minimise our spending at the moment. Like you we need to be good stewards of God’s resources at this difficult time.
We DO understand that your income might be drastically reduced during this crisis. You may genuinely need to reduce your giving if your income is drastically reduced. We understand this – so does God!
