CHURCH FINANCES UPDATE

 (completely separate from the 'Heart of Totteridge' capital project)

  

Perhaps inevitably, with churches closed and no cash or credit card collections taking place, or income from Hall bookings received, national Church finances up and down the land have suffered enormously.

Sadly, outgoing payments have not suffered the same fate, and it has become necessary to reiterate to all who want to continue to support the St. Andrew's Church Family, that we must now put out an 

APPEAL

We are grateful to those who have already signed up to the...

but would encourage more to join it now.

To make the process easier for you to do, the PGS have now provided a telephone number you can call to set up a regular Direct Debit (D/D) donation to St. Andrew's over the phone:

0333 002 1271

An administrator will take you through the required process, and you will need to have the following to hand:

  • Personal Bank A/C details

  • The name of the Parish you wish to donate to i.e.: St. Andrew's Totteridge

  • Whether you are happy to have your gift index-linked in line with annual inflation. (We'd be grateful if you can agree to this)

  • Confirmation of your eligibility for Gift Aid (which increased your gift by 25%)

  • You will be asked for the PGS code for St. Andrew's: 320632029.

  • You will then receive written confirmation (via post or email) of your new D/D.

We sincerely hope that, whilst you have more time at home to do so, you will please take the opportunity to call them at the PGS to sign up.

Thanking you in advance,

Revd. Tim & the St. Andrew's PCC

COMMUNITY

WE HOPE YOU  HAVE BEEN FINDING ALL THE SHOPPING AND CHARITY DONATION INFORMATION IN THIS SECTION USEFUL, AND IT CAN ALL STILL BE FOUND  

HERE

WE WILL CONTINUE TO ADD NEW INFORMATION HERE, SO DO LET ME KNOW IF THERE IS ANYTHING YOU THINK WOULD BE USEFUL FOR US TO ADD.

MANY THANKS

mrsvicar@seago.org.uk

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.

 

Please take care, be safe, and be wise – and let’s all put others

ahead of ourselves.

Go with God and may the peace of the Lord be with you all

 

Our very best love to you all,

Rev. Tim & Mrs. Vicar
