2014 - 2015† A letter from Revd Dr Jeremy Brooks, Rector of Beaconsfield
Church of England churches
ďOne of the marks of living the Christian life is that we live lives of generosity and grace.† This is as true for us as an organisation as it is for us as individual Christians.† That is why it is so vital that we as a team continue to give generously to organisations beyond our borders Ė to support the mission of God in this country and across the world.†
However, we should also know where our money is going.† The distribution of financial support through the Outside Giving Committee is an important way of living that generous life.
In choosing the organisations to support we have in 2014 deliberately restricted ourselves to four main choices as a team.† This is so that our support can be meaningful Ė both in terms of the amounts that we can give to each organisation, but also to enable relationships to be built with those charities.† Each organisation supported has an avowed Christian ethos and I hope we will be able to encourage speakers to visit and take part in our main Church services.
In giving to others, we show in a small way the generosity and grace that is at the heart of God. ď
St Michaelís gives 12.5% of the congregationís donations each year to Outside Giving, in line with the Beaconsfield Team policy.† 4.5% goes to St Michaelís Church direct Outside Giving.†† 8% goes towards the four charities supported by the †Outside Giving of the Beaconsfield Team of St Maryís, St Michaelís and St Thomasí. †
These charities may change in the second half of 2015
