Mission Giving

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.                       Matthew 25:35-36

St Michael's usually donates 15% of its income to charities nominated by members of the congregation with additional appeals run during Lent and at Harvest. 2020 has obviously been different. Income from lettings of the church premises has been hit hard by the pandemic and other sources of funding have also been affected.

The PCC therefore took the decision to allocate the sum of £1250 to mission giving this year and to ask the Mission Giving Committee to decide how to allocate this money. They decided to split the money equally between three charities:-

               Work Aid

               Embrace the Middle East

               The Hospice of St. Francis
