Giving for the Family Development Minister project

With Debbie Godsell off to a flying start, now well known in our schools, play groups, uniformed groups, we are very grateful for those who have made arrangements to support financially the Family Development Minister project.

The project is for three years. Most of our funding is coming from the Gloucester Diocese LIFE Development Fund and from the Sylvanus Lysons Charity. However, we do need local sponsors. We are seeking for 30 sponsors to give £100 a year for three years. If you can give more than £100 we shall need fewer sponsors.

Please contact your church treasurer. Explain you want to contribute to the Family Development Minister project. The church treasurer will give you (if you are not already doing so) a leaflet explaining how to use the “parish giving scheme”. It is simple to do. The scheme helps the church receive regular giving through the year and arranges for Gift Aid (usually 25-40% more) to be added straight away.

For those already on the parish giving scheme, giving through the scheme to their church (as is recommended by the Gloucester Diocese), please explain to the church treasurer that you want to give a £X extra amount, above what you give to church, for the Family Development Minister project. Then you contact the Parish Giving Scheme info@parishgivingscheme.org.uk or phone 01452 835522. They will arrange for an increase in your giving.
