 Church finances – update from Resourcing Impact Group

RIG noted at its meeting last week that the projected deficit for the 2018 PCC general funds is c.£20,000: delays in HRV has increased expenditure on heating, insurance and church office at 2AC & reduced hall income from the late handover, together with people leaving or reducing their giving (for good reasons) this summer/autumn. The 2019 budget will be considered by PCC on 22 November and again is looking challenging.

Please pray for God to provide all we need.
