Outward Giving

The ‘Outward Giving Group’ is responsible to the PCC for organising specific charitable giving.  Each charity is separately sponsored by members of the congregation and invited annually to speak about its work at morning service.  During 2019 the Group transferred £4000 from the PCC into a new Links International account, to be divided between Katy Barnwell of Wycliffe Bible Translators, The Leprosy Mission, The Bevern Trust, Family Support Work and Links International, including also support to La Guijara in Northern Columbia.  An additional £1,700 was then raised for the Leprosy mission from a congregation gift day which was doubled by Government matched funding, a further £400 was raised for the Kwambegi Regeneration Foundation for Camp Jabez in Kenya and over £1,000 additionally for the Bevern Trust.

Thank you to all those who have donated this week as you know St Mary’s relies on donations. Especially during the current coronavirus crisis our funding is reduced as public worship is suspended. If you would like to change your giving, please contact Christopher our treasurer by email on mcmhume@outlook.com

You can also make donations online at https://newickchurch.org/donations/

Patsy & the pastoral team at St Mary’s are doing an amazing job of supporting our community and our church and your support makes a huge difference in how we are able to be Christ’s eyes and ears in the parish.

Here is a short video about why our giving is so important.
