MODERATORS APPEAL: The Moderator of the General Assembly, Rt Rev Dr Michael Barry, has asked all congregations to contribute to his appeal to help those in Nepal affected by the recent earthquakes. All monies will be given to Christian Aid, Tear Fund and United Mission to Nepal. Our committee have decided that Sunday 31st May will be the designated Moderator’s Appeal Sunday and Gift envelopes will be in the pews on the Sunday before.
NIGHTLIGHT: Following last Sunday evening’s service, we are looking for any surplus or unused sleeping bags. If you bring them to us, we can pass them on to Nightlight who will pass them on to the homeless in Belfast.
GIFT AID: Did you receive a P60 form from Inland Revenue? If you did you are a tax payer and are entitled to receive Gift Aid. It doesn’t cost you anything other than 3 minutes of your time to complete a very simple form. We have placed forms in the pews today; please fill one in if you haven’t done so already. The congregational committee have reckoned we can increase our giving by £7000 if everyone entitled to Gift Aid actually claimed it, and it doesn’t cost anyone a penny. If you need help or reassurance in completing the form please call into the office on Thursday and we will try to help you.
