Although no church has a built-in right to the generosity of the people who support it, it does cost a considerable amount to maintain a Grade I listed ancient building and run a thriving community, and all local churches now have to support themselves.?Any donation will be very gratefully received and appreciated.?Please?speak to Gail on 01903 745754.
GIVE YOUR TIME
Any organisation and particularly a voluntary one like St Marys, Sullington depends on people's time and effort.?An event such as the Flower Festival takes many, many hours of cake baking, seed and plant nurturing, arranging displays, organising rotas, sweeping floors, moving tables, cleaning, directing traffic and pouring tea - but the warm feeling of involvement and community makes it truly worthwhile.?Please speak to Ann on 01798 813481 or John on 07841 204330.
St Mary's, Sullington in your will so that this church and its churchyard which have been loved and cared for by successive generations will continue to be a place of peace and beauty for many years.?
We at St Mary's church, Sullington have recently produced a booklet, for those on our electoral roll, outlining the church's financial position.
We are proud to have, for the last two years, paid 100% of the contribution towards diocesan expenses asked of us by Diocese of Chichester, this contribution covers costs such as; clergy wages, housing and pensions. This amounts to around ?29,000 each year and is the only cost over which we have no control.
However, the Diocesan contribution and all our other costs continue to increase and we have reached the point where expenses are outweighing income. We urgently need to redress this balance and have created the booklet as a request for increased financial support. We do not want anyone to give what they cannot afford but are asking all those interested in St Mary's church, Sullington to consider giving a small, regular financial gift to our church. If we all pull together; we will make a difference.
You may not be on the church's electoral roll but may still be interested to see our booklet or discuss our position. If so, please do not hesitate to contact us......firstname.lastname@example.org
