A message from Ruth Cullinan, our Treasurer –

Greetings in these strange times!  Some of us Oldies are used to life feeling quite like perpetual weekends but this does still feel different. Someone has pressed the pause button. For those normally engaged in the world of work, I expect this is more difficult to adjust to. It is an anxious time though, for all of us.

Most Charities are becoming anxious about financial survival. Our Church also has Charity status, which means that we operate financially with about three months running costs in hand. We are fortunate that so many of our Church Members contribute financially by Bank Credit. The longer the Lockdown continues, then the more impact there will be on our finances.

I know that some of you may have grave personal concerns about managing financially because of your changed work situation. However those who normally donate cash or Gift Aid blue envelopes to our weekly collections, may be able or wish to continue to give.

Our Bank details are as follows:

St. Michael's PCC-Woburn Sands, Barclays Sort Code 20 5740   Account 30985279 if you do online Banking. If you prefer, Andrew Powell will be able to send you an email attached Bank Mandate for you to sign and submit to your Bank, for a regular donation that way.  Andrew’s email: akw.powell@waitrose.com 

It already seems a long time since we have been together in Church. I hope we all remain in good health until we can meet and worship together again in St Michael’s.

Thank you to all those who donate.
