Financial appeals

The results of the appeals are as follows: Project Connect raised £310,030 including Gift Aid from 55 members who responded. We also raised another £21,040 for the iServe Africa training centre project. Regular Giving (RGS) raised £19,854 per annum from 13 new contributors and 36 that increased their regular giving and 4 that renewed at the same level. While these are a bit below the targets we were aiming for, we thank all who have responded and praise the Lord for his ongoing provision for us in terms of our financial needs. If you have not yet returned your response forms, you can still do so.
