Dear Members of the Congregation, Swallows and supporters,
Although the buildings have been closed these past months, I hope you have been able to access the All Saints website, Facebook page and join the Tenerife (and others) virtual church service on Sundays via Facebook where Revd Ron is a regular participant. His Sunday sermons and prayers can be read online.
I hope you have found the services and resources provided by All Saints via internet to enable you to meet with God – the church is still alive and active. As we develop our IT skills, I pray we will be able to be more interactive with worship and other activities. If you have any ideas you would like us to explore then please let us know.
Without wishing to add more stress to what is already a difficult situation, I need to pass on some rather critical information. One of the outcomes of the lockdown is that our monthly expenditure is exceeding our income. This is for a combination of reasons: not only are we not taking collections at services, but we are unable to do any fund raising, so we have no income from the monthly Car Boot sales or other events. If you are able, now would be a good time to take a moment to reflect upon your financial support of the Church and how you give.
As Treasurer, I would like to take this opportunity to encourage those who would normally put a regular donation into the plate to sign up to make their donations via one of All Saints bank accounts, either here or in the UK. If you are not a taxpayer, then you can still make regular payments by setting up a standing order/direct debit if you use internet banking.
Please write your name and PDLC or Tenerife N in the bank comments/dialogue box. If you normally gift aid your donations, and would like to continue to do so, please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will gladly send you a form to complete.
