Our Parish is committed to the Church of Ireland Safeguarding Trust policy which sets standards for the welfare of all children involved in the ministry of the church with a view to protecting them. The parish panel to whom any concerns can be brought is Archdeacon Andrew Forster, Miss Maureen McKeown and Mr Vivian Suitor. Their contact details are displayed on the notices in the Church Halls and notice board in the Church Foyer. If you wish to make urgent contact please phone Archdeacon Forster at 87722614.
Please inform Andrew or Elizabeth if you are going into Hospital or if you are already there. This is most important now that the Clergy do not have access to the denominational list of patients. It would also be appreciated if you could let us know when you have been discharged or transferred to another Hospital.
As we begin 2018 we want to thank you for your continued generous support for Drumglass Parish.
With your help over this last year we have been able to:-
Re-roof St Anne’s Hall
Support our link missionaries
Place a beautiful stained glass window in St Elizabeth’s
Grow our youth and children’s work
Maintain our pastoral ministry
To help our Parish flourish, would you prayerfully consider increasing your giving by 10% for 2018? With that increase we could continue to meet our on-going maintenance cost and build up our Church ministry.
What does that look like per week? This is what a 10% increase would look like:
|Current giving||Increased by 10%|
If you would like to sign up for FWO envelopes, Gift Aid and Standing Order/Direct Debit, please contact Mavis Kerr our Treasurer or any of the churchwardens.
Please give this your prayerful consideration, but please be assured that whatever support you can give us is deeply appreciated.
Your friend and Rector
What is Gift Aid?
When you sign up to Gift Aid as a taxpayer, the Government gives the church a further 25% of the amount you yourself give. For example for every £1 you give the government gives the church 25p.
This means £100 becomes £125
£300 becomes £375
£500 becomes £625
£1000 becomes £1250
All you have to do is simply fill in a Gift Aid form with your name and address.
It couldn’t be more simple.
Your financial details are not required on the form and the Church does not know anything about your financial circumstances.
The benefit is clear, so please, if you are a taxpayer and you haven’t signed up, complete the enclosed form and return it to the Office to allow the church to receive 25% from the Government.
