It’s not very British to talk about money, especially when it comes to talking about what you do with it but sometimes needs must.
For a number of years our church treasurers have been highlighting that our regular giving isn’t covering costs and we have been slow to respond. Yet we all want to continue offering love, care and good news through our ministries to the local community who themselves are suffering from government cutbacks and financial hardship.
At our recent Members’ Meeting, many members expressed a desire to support Elmwood financially after hearing about our proposed budget cuts so we would like to invite you to take part in Giving Sunday.
On Sunday 22nd March you can pick up a leaflet to guide you through the process, and on 29th March, we will be asking all members of Elmwood church to review their giving and if possible – renew their financial commitment to our church family.
