March Finance Figures

As you can see below our giving in March was excellent - praise God. A huge thank you to everyone who gave for your incredible generosity. It wasn't too many years ago that we were praying for £10,000 a week in the offering. It's amazing to think that we're now pushing towards more than twice that - let's be praying for that to quickly become become the norm for us as community.

In addition to that we also received £25,500 from our March generous gifts days. Again a huge thank you to everyone who gave.

The surplus in March means that we're now ahead of budget for 2016 by £3,686 which is very encouraging.

If that surplus continues to grow it will allow us to do things in 2016 which we've currently had to put off until 2017, including amongst other things:

  • Equipment we'd like to buy for our kids work and tech teams
  • Improvements we'd like to make to the buildings we use in Bracknell and Sandhurst
  • Overseas students we'd like to invite to join Academy in September
  • Trips we'd like to make to invest in other churches both in the UK and overseas

All of that would make a huge difference, so let's be praying for the surplus to continue growing as the year goes on.
