Church Meeting & Gift Day

Sunday 5th December

The target amount we are hoping to raise for our building project over the next few months is £75,000.

GIFT AID - If you are a tax payer, have you completed a Gift Aid Form? Our church benefits by receiving an extra 25p direct from HMRC, for every £1 you donate. This applies for giving by monthly standing order, weekly envelopes or cheque. Please contact Malcolm McCulloch for more details.

Christmas Card


There will be a large Christmas card for the church family to sign, which will be in the foyer throughout December. This is to give an alternative to sending out individual cards to one another.

The money you save on buying cards for everyone can be put in the collection tin next to the large SBC card, and all monies will be going to the Stratford Foodbank.
