Average giving has declined by approximately 15% on the previous year, which is approximately 4% lower than budget for the year. We’ve managed to reduce some expenses to offset this decline in giving. Thanks be to God that our finances remain in a relatively strong position. Council continues to monitor the financial position closely as any further decline in giving will have an impact on the ability to meet our ministry commitments.
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 email@example.com or a member of the Church Council.
