What we do with the money we are entrusted with.
The congregation maintain the building in which we worship and the hall where we run some of our social activities. We provide a house for a minister, known as the Manse. We support the costs of employing a minister to lead us on our journey with Jesus, to teach us and to pray for us. The minister also conducts services at which a wedding or funeral may take place. As a congregation we contribute to the central costs of running our denomination. As well as this we meet other costs in support of our ministry including administration, publicity and training.
The congregation operates as a registered charity and is assisted by the Gift Aid that we are able to claim back from the Revenue. We keep the source of all donations confidential to the members of our finance team who handle Gift Aid claims and statutory (church and state) returns. If you would like to make a public donation, perhaps in memory of a loved one, please contact us and we will do what we can to help.
