Can you help us?
As you will know from 17 March 2020 the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have instructed that the Church of England should suspend public worship because of the Corona Virus pandemic.
Because of the Corona virus, our hall users have had to cease meeting because Government guidelines stress that we must all restrict social gatherings. This, along with no Sunday collections, means a significant drop in our income and ability to function in the near future.
Because we will not be meeting on Sundays as a church family for some time there will be no collections but as a church we still have to pay our utility bills, community charge, insurances and £47,000 parish share to the Manchester Diocese.
If you often give to the church though cash or cheque in the collection plate, might we ask you to consider giving by standing order. This would help us maintain a regular income, which would be especially helpful during the period of no public worship.
Anyone using online banking can use these details to set up a standing order from home:
Christ Church West Didsbury
Sort code 40-52-40
Account number 00029660
Otherwise it can be set up by telephoning your bank, writing to them, or calling into your branch.
Forms are available for gift aiding your stewardship if you pay tax. These are on the sidespersons table at church (or they can be delivered to you).

Please pray about this and help us to spread God’s message of love to our community. Jesus gave up his life for us and we will be thinking about that especially during Holy Week. We have a generous God. Can we meet up to his challenge to be more like him?
