As part of the PCC’s resolve to donate 5% of our regular income to Mission Support and Charities chosen from suggestions to the Congregation, the link below downloads a short report for the next Ministry & Mission Committee meeting as to where we stand on this.
Parish Support Fund – your PCC has pledged to give the Diocese £141,480 in 2019. Our pledge pays the costs of employing 1.8 Clergy. To find out more about the costs of running the Diocese and the good work that is happening do a YouTube search entering Parish Support Fund and Diocese of Southwark.
Thanks to two more contributions, the final amount raised for the Week is £3,592, £2,059 of this was Gift Aided, which is now over £300 more than last year. Very many thanks again to all those who contributed, and to collectors also. Isobel Moses.”
You will be pleased to have noticed that our exterior perimeter wall is in the process of being restored, thanks to the generosity of both The Friends of St Anne’s and the residual funds from the Tercentenary Appeal. Starting this week, work on replacing our ancient Victorian church heating system will begin. In the first few weeks this entails removing the old boiler and replacing it with two new boilers. In July and August the cast iron heating pipes in the church will be removed and replaced by a modern equivalent. Inevitably there will be some disruption to our Sunday worship as parts of the church will need to be closed off, but it is our intention to keep this to a minimum. The replacement heating is being funded from our designated reserves for this type of project. Your PCC allocates £1500 a month towards work of this nature.
