Our Legacy Project… Update
Blessing others as we have been blessed
A huge thank you to all those of you who have given so generously this Easter Season towards the final gap of £150,000. Over £30,000 has now been given. If you would like to join in this amazing opportunity, please do bring your gift on Easter Sunday or you can do so via https://www.christchurchware.co.uk/giving.html
A reminder of the project:
The people of Christ Church have always embraced opportunities to use our resources to reach out to others. The recent redevelopment of the office and the Church building was purposed to underpin this vision for a generation to come.
Continuing on this theme, the PCC has recommitted to complete the original objectives of the redevelopment project, and to raise the last of the funds needed to enable the Church to be “debt free”. Included as a key objective of the project is that 10% of all personal gifting for the redevelopment should be used to create lasting legacy projects which bless others.
The many relationships that Christ Church already enjoys will form the core of our focus to become recipients of our legacy funding - and projects that enable others to learn of God’s word, to grow in faith and to have a long lasting kingdom impact are our mission.
A huge thank you to all those of you have given over £1million towards the project, the last Gap is £150,000 that we would like to raise in this Easter season and if you would like to join in with thanks for all that God is doing through us the link is: https://www.christchurchware.co.uk/giving.html
We are looking forward to celebrating with the candidates on the 24th of April. At 10.30. Please do be praying for them
The next Seven Service is on this Sunday 24th April
Church Electoral Roll: The annual revision of the Church Electoral Roll is underway.
If you think you should be on it please check the copy by the West Door. If you would like to be on it please complete a form and place in the collection box or give in to the office by Tuesday 3rd May. What is the Electoral Roll? The church’s Electoral Roll is the register of its voting members; it is a list of those qualified to attend and to vote at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting. Electoral rolls provide an indication of the real membership and strength of the church.
Who can be on the electoral Roll? If you are baptised and over 16, and either live in the parish, or have worshipped regularly at Christ Church for at least six months; and are committed to being part of the life of the local Church of England congregation. Why Join? Enrolment is a way of saying....“I belong”. For us it is an act of commitment to Christ Church and the church as a whole.
