Thanks be to God that our finances are in a strong position as we move through this crisis period. Regular giving for this financial year finished $86k behind budget and discretionary spend has been reduced where possible. Graciously we have received a total of $65k in one-off gifts and a $10k bequest which largely supplements the shortfall in regular giving for the year to date.
In light of the current times, Council is also in the midst of setting a conservative budget for 20/21 in the expectation that many families will find themselves in financial hardship, and that the economy of WA as a whole will experience a significant slowdown. As always, our trust is in the Lord to provide, but we are well served by sensible and prudent stewards of our finances and property.
If you have any questions about our financial position, please don't hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org or a member of the Church Council.
