FINANCIAL SITUATION

You will appreciate lockdown has posed huge difficulties for us financially and we are having to use our very limited reserves to try to meet our commitments.

Since lockdown started at the end of March the only income for Inchinnan Parish Church has been from those members who give by standing order direct to our Bank Account. We have had no weekly offerings, no fundraising events and no income from people using the facilities of our Church Hall. This has brought sharply into focus the benefits of payments being made directly into our Bank and it would be of great help in trying to manage this situation as best we can in these difficult times if you would be happy to contribute to Church funds by using Internet Banking or standing order. If you could contact me on ercockburn@googlemail.com I will be happy to provide details of how you can do this. Thank you for your continuing support.
