"GIVING IN GRACE"
Dearest Friends, May I begin by taking the opportunity, right at the outset, to thank you all – each and every one of you – for the generosity, both prayerfully and financially, that you already exercise in our churches and across our team ministry both today and in the past.
PARISH GIVING SCHEME
The Church of England offers a Christian presence in every community. Together we seek to make this Christian presence the heart of all our cities, towns and villages: by our wonderful buildings; by worshipping together; by serving our communities and by sharing our faith and values. This valuable contribution to our community has a cost, of which 75% is met by personal donations. For our Church to survive and grow, we rely on regular donations so that we can plan confidently for the future.
GIVING OF GIFTS
The Joy of Generosity
In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said; “It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35).
Within the Knaresborough Team Ministry, we encourage a culture of generous giving. Every gift makes an incredible difference to our churches, the people of Knaresborough, its surrounding villages and our work in the world.
If you are able to give either financially or through giving of your time please contact the parish office 01423 869209.
