PARISH FINANCIAL APPEAL & RE-DECORATION APPEAL UPDATE: Many thanks to everyone who contributed to the re-decoration appeal so far, which raised £923.74 on the day, and now stands at £1,500 with hopefully more to come through bank transfers.
If you have not yet contributed, please do so by either using a gift aid envelope, (white ones are available from the newsletter tables), or a plain envelope for your gift, and marking them ‘Re-decoration’. Envelopes can be put in the offertory collection.
It has been suggested by a number of parishioners that this appeal should be kept open whilst we try to raise as much money as possible towards the cost. We are looking into purchasing an additional wall box for this purpose. Bank transfers can be made to Christ the King Church, Sort Code: 60-50-01, Account number: 36006076. The reference should be your name, followed by GD if you are a member of the gift aid scheme.
Thank you very much also to everyone who took a gift aid form and/or a standing order form after the recent financial appeal. Please return the completed forms to the parish office as soon as possible. For those who would like to join the gift aid scheme and/or make their regular offering by standing order, there are plenty of spare forms on the table near the back of the church.
