This November Gift Day supports the ministry and mission of St Michael’s Church, as we aim to be a Christian heart at the centre of the community.
Living to make a difference through discipleship, outreach and service.
Supporting Ministry & Mission
One Church, One Vision
Our vision is living to make a difference by being a Christian heart at the centre of the community.
Our vision is realised by focusing on Discipleship, Outreach and Serving our Community.
To make our vision happen, we hold 2 gift days a year. One in November to support day-to-day ministry, and one in May to support our resources and buildings.
Our gifts make this vision possible. This year, we’ve:
Recruited new staff team members – Youth Minister, Children and Families Minister, Students and Young Adults Worker and Buildings, Facilities & Technical Services Manager.
Welcomed Tom Benyon as Associate Minister – allowing us to expand our ministry in Cheswick and through Life Groups.
Replaced the roof on our historic church building.
Thank you for joining us on this adventure of generous giving that enables our vision to become a reality.
Key Priorities for 2018-2021
Jesus is calling us to invest in the lives of children and families. We’ve employed a paid Children and Families Minister this year to grow this ministry and lead our amazing volunteers.
New Housing Areas
In Cheswick and Harry Stoke we’d like to plant new Life Groups, grow young leaders and meet community needs for all ages.
Young Adults Ministry
Students, 20s and 30s are absent from most churches. We would like to resource ministry among this generation.
Church Building Repairs
We aim to invest in the Church building by providing toilets, renewed flooring, improved seating and repairing the dry stone wall.
This Appeal is an Invitation…..
To everyone who belongs to St Michael’s
We have a vision for growth of our congregations and our community outreach. We require faith, boldness and generosity in our giving according to our circumstances. By God’s grace and our commitment, we will have the resources to take hold of these opportunities.
If you’re not yet giving
Some of us haven’t yet been able to support our ministry and mission. Could now be your time to begin giving financially?
If you’re new to St Michael’s
Maybe you’ve recently joined church and not yet become part of the vision to be a Christian heart at the centre of the community. Would you consider giving towards the development of our ministries to enable the vision?
If you can give more
Some of us are in a better financial position than before. Please pray about increasing your giving.
