A note from the Corporation
First and foremost, a huge THANK YOU to those parishioners who have continued to make their contributions to the church in these different times. Whether it is by auto debit or by sending a cheque into the church, these contributions have allowed us to respond to our parishioners needs, provide services and sermons on the internet, and above all, allow Anna and Carolyn to do what they do best!
April contributions are down approximately 15% from March and rental income is down as well. The drop in is partially offset by some expense reductions, so we are able to keep going, and ask that if you can, please continue to make your contributions to the church.
Have any of you been wondering about the parking lot?
Negotiations are continuing with the contractor and if all goes to plan, we should see the work commencing within a month! The Parish council, have decided the church will cover the additional costs of $38,000 from reserve , with the intent to rebuild the reserve over the next 2 years. The budget is now $238,000.
All being well the new parking lot should be completed by the end of August.
Thank you to everyone who have been: contributing to church services, sermon ,maintaining social distancing, wearing masks , thanking nurses, doctors , first responders, cleaners, and each other for all that is being done to conquer this virus.
Please continue to take care of yourselves, your families, and each other.
