‘We have so much to be thankful for,’ was the opening statement in the talk given on St Andrew’s Day, the first Sunday of Advent. ‘Giving to those in need shows we care, and don’t take for granted what we have. In giving we acknowledge God’s gifts to us.’
Thank you to all whose contributions through the year have enabled St Andrew’s to work out our mission to tell people about Jesus. Your generous contributions have, so far, made it possible for us to make donations of over £20,000 in 2016 to our partner charities. Letters of thanks for the final tranche of donations will shortly be pinned on the Outward Giving notice board in the church vestibule.
Please remember that ‘Planned Giving’ makes it easier to budget for ‘Outward Giving’. If you would like to support our outward giving programme through the planned giving scheme, please pick up a reply card from the church vestibule.
