Do you need help or know anyone who does?
You will probably know that there is a group of Bassingbourn volunteers that are able help with things like getting urgent supplies, posting mail, animal care or just calling for a chat. You may not know that this team is headed by our very own Claire Ives (Star!) so there will be a friendly face at the end of the email address and phone line (except when someone else is covering for her). The dedicated phone number and email are 074896 084509 and firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a leaflet with more information here. Nick (added 3rd March)
A message on Church giving
In these tough times, we appreciate that some of us will be feeling the pinch and may need to review downwards your financial giving to the church, and if you do, please know that you have our prayers of support and gratitude for all you have given.
If you can keep up your giving however, please, please do so! Our church still has high fixed costs (about £54,300 per year) that need paying, and our variable income just from the collection plate and messy church last year came to £6,500.
So, if you pay by standing order – thank you very much! But if you pay cash to the church, please do consider setting up a standing order instead; I’m very happy to help you with this simple process if you wish (07762 089851). You can also give directly by card using Golden Giving, just click on the Golden Giving logo. If these can’t work for you, please put a “collection plate” jar aside in your house, and put into it whatever you would have given the church, and when we come out of the other side of this and church reopens, please bring that jar into church as your gift to God.
We will get through this, we will still be a church family, and we will still have a church. But please help as you can to keep us financially above water any way you can. Thank you. Jay (added 27th March)
Church Electoral Roll
The Church of England has made arrangements for Annual Parochial Church Meetings (APCM) to be postponed until later in the year. Consequently, the formal revision period of the Electoral Roll has been suspended. You can still join the Roll though by simply completing the form (click here to download) and returning to email@example.com or leaving in the Church Office post box.
If you would just like the Church to be able to keep in touch with you please send your contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org. Hilary (added 27th March)
Thank you from Caroline
I am so grateful that we were able to have such a wonderful service together last week. Little did we know then that it would be the last time for a while that we be worshipping together in church. Thank you to everyone who made it such a special day, both the service and the splendid lunch that we shared afterwards. Thank you, too, for the very generous and lovely gifts; the picture of the two churches will be going up in pride of place in my new house and I will use the (large amount of) money to buy something by which I can remember you all. I am truly sorry that I am leaving you at such a challenging time, but I know that, as you have always done before, you will love and care for each other and for the wider community. My new email address is email@example.com and I will let you have my physical address when I finally move. I suspect that I might be around in Bassingbourn for a little longer than originally planned and that, at least for the time being, I will be spending a lot more time working as a doctor. With my thanks, love and ongoing prayers. Caroline (added 21st March)
