Free Will Offering Scheme: The 2013 FWO envelopes will be available next week. For
those who are not familiar with the FWO scheme, it is where we make a monetary contribution to the church on a weekly or other regular basis, using the envelope which is put in
the collection plate or bag. It makes us think of the importance of our offerings as well as giving
the church some idea of its regular income. The support given by parishioners is very much appreciated. If you do not presently belong to the FWO scheme, would you consider joining? If
you pay Tax, this allows us to draw an additional 25p for every £1 donated, at no cost to you.
Please speak to Tony Walker if you would like to join or know more information.
