Giving to the church

A Letter from the Vicar: 
Dear friends,
 
As you probably know, our church building cannot be used for services at the moment because of the current pandemic. We are still trying to support the community by providing online services, pastoral care and linking with local support groups.
 
As the church buildings are not open we are not able to receive donations in the usual way. The church is NOT centrally funded but relies on the generosity of those who use the church and/or live in the parish. There are many bills to pay just to keep the church building running and, as there is no weekly collection, we need further help to pay the bills.
 
We know this is a difficult time for everyone but if you can spare something to support your local church then please contact your church treasurer or contact me (vicar.camvillages@gmail) if you would like further information or for your treasurers email address.
 With love and best wishes,
 
Alex.
