Living as we do in the rural parish of Yarkhill with its beautiful church on a site of worship that is centuries old, we can all too easily take for granted its presence and role in the community serving our village and its people, as it has done for countless generations.
or not we attend church services most of us live by Christian values and many
turn to the Church for major life events such as the celebration of marriage or
christenings, or to provide comfort and succour at times of bereavement.
With this in mind and wanting to secure St. John the Baptist’s Church for future generations do you think that YOU can help your local church practically and financially over the coming years?
The Parish Giving Scheme is already helping hundreds of parishes across England and has now arrived in Herefordshire.
The following leaflets, which can be found on the Downloads page, explain the scheme:
i. A BETTER WAY TO GIVE TO YOUR LOCAL CHURCH.
ii. PGS FAQ’s (Frequently asked questions).
We, as your local parish church, are thankful for all your generosity and giving, whether in time, talents or treasure, and given in whatever way or whatever amount.
It will help greatly if you are able to join this scheme, as a new giver or in place of any current giving arrangements you have, so that we can look forward to a more secure future and continue to be here for everyone in Yarkhill whenever you need us.
Mandy Williams, Rector
With our thanks and all good wishes
