We are hugely grateful to so many who continue to make their weekly or monthly contribution to the finances of the Team, by standing order or direct debit. However if anyone would like to make a donation to the work of our churches this can be done at https://givealittle.co/campaigns/5260a080-4ee0-49b6-a1c3-d552ef9a0700 Whilst this is a challenging time for many, financially as well as emotionally, I hope we can continue to count on your support for the work of our 3 churches.
