Links to the Remit that we will be learning about on February 12th after worship
(don’t forget to bring a brown bag lunch!)
The New Funding Model remit proposes a dramatic new way for us to fund our national church work.
Currently, much of the work is funded through voluntary Mission & Service Fund donations, which means not every pastoral charge contributes (yet still benefit from the services) and it is not always clear that an M&S donation helps pay for the ministry of church administration.
The new model would be a “direct assessment” on EVERY pastoral charge. It is clearly transparent and equitable.
The key question is whether it is affordable for congregations on the margins.
Please read the material and come ready for a good discussion!
