Two years ago, to help achieve our vision to be an outward looking church, your Parochial Church Council agreed that 5% of our income should be given away to charity. Your PCC agreed that the charities that we are to support should be chosen from charities suggested by the congregation. Chosen charities may be large or small, local, national or international, and will reflect our Christian values of inclusiveness and social justice. Support will be offered for typically two to three years and the congregation are encouraged to find out more about the charities work, and to also pray for them. Each of the chosen charities will be invited to make a presentation which will raise our awareness of their work. In choosing the final list the PCC will seek information from the Charities Commission to ensure that the charities are able to deliver their vision.
We are now inviting you to suggest charities that you would like to see St Anne's support. In the first instance please email Fr. Nigel, Tina or Bill with your suggested charity along with a few words about why you would like the church to give your charity consideration. The closing deadline is 30th September.
