MYANMAR EMERGENCY APPEAL – Anglican Board of Mission (ABM)
ABM’s partner in Myanmar, the Church of the Province of Myanmar (CPM) has called on Anglicans in Australia and elsewhere to support their appeal for funds so they can address the worsening COVID-19 crisis there. The health emergency has been exacerbated by hospital and clinic closures, greatly reduced testing and lack of access to vaccines. People are queuing in the streets for oxygen to assist those being cared for in their homes. To read more and to donate, go here.
NB *** CHURCH GIVING AND THE PARISH FINANCES ***
Due to the covid lockdown restrictions our Sunday 10am service has once again been cancelled. As a result the offerings usually given during the Sunday service cannot be collected. Can I encourage our parishioners to contribute on a regular basis by using the banking details below. All of our fundraising efforts have also been suspended, so the need is considerable. Noel
