As our Giving Review Month draws to a close, I thought I would give you a short update on how it’s going.
As you may remember, we were asking all of you who call King’s home to review your monthly giving as well as to consider making an additional gift towards Vision 2030. After a slow start during the first two months of the King’s financial year, we had set a target of between £200,000 and £220,000 in total offerings for November.
I am delighted to report that a significant proportion of the church have participated in the Giving Review so far. This reflects high commitment across the church, which is very encouraging. Our best indication is that we seem likely to finish the month at just over £205,000 which, though slightly below our faith target, would still be amazing. Massive thanks to all of you who have taken part!
Of course, it’s not too late to contribute, so if you have yet to play your part, please prayerfully respond over the next few days as we approach the end of the month.
Diversity Listening Survey
You may remember that in my Vision Sunday message in October I told you that we planned to conduct a listening exercise in the church, specifically on the subjects of race, diversity and justice, as part of our commitment to building a diverse church. The online survey is now live, and we would love to hear feedback from members of King’s about your experiences in these areas. It is anonymous and is focused on King’s in particular. It will take about ten minutes to complete.
Finally, can I remind you that our first weekend of carol services is just a couple of weeks away, so now is the time to start inviting your friends, family, neighbours and work colleagues. To help us manage numbers at our in-person services you will need to book free tickets for everyone in your party, which you can now do here. An online version of the service will be also available, and you will find plenty of ideas of how to invite your friends and family, no matter where they live, here.
