National Giving Day Update – 12 November 2021
The Church of Scotland designated the period leading up to 31 October as a time of National Giving. This was to recognise that for all churches, the finances have been severely hit by the closure of our churches during the covid pandemic. Any one-off donations made during this period would not be included in future years towards our Ministry & Mission contributions to the central church.
I am delighted to report that, following a steady start, an amazing outpouring of gifts on the last day resulted in givings totalling £19,561 which, with gift aid, will provide us with additional funds of £24,250.
Praise God for his provision, and thank you for answering the call for funds and the prompting of the Holy Spirit!
With heartfelt blessings to all
Alison F (Finance Convenor)
