One last bit of news–
On Friday the Diocese announced that not only had the majority of staff at the Diocesan Office been placed on furlough but also from Monday a number of volunteer curates across the Diocese will be furloughed.
At the moment no clergy have been furloughed.
As I have mentioned before the finances of your local Church and our Diocese have been severely affected by Covid 19.
Our collection giving has been reduced ..not only from plate giving and envelopes but also from other fundraising like hall letting, fairs etc
And the bills still keep coming in, whilst we have reduced our costs, there are standing charges, at least, on gas and electric plus other annual, maintenance and contract costs which we have to pay
But the single largest item we have to pay is our Parish Share the majority of which goes towards paying clergy
Our 4 team Churches pay a total of £13,750 per month – with each Church paying differing amounts
I have been working with the 4 Treasurers across the team to look at our finances…
we have had to make some difficult decisions already and more will need to be made
I would ask you, if you don’t already give by standing order or direct debit ….
