Mission Partners of St Julian’s
As many know, at St. Julian’s we give out from what we are given. So 10% of what we receive in St Julian’s is given to a number of organisations that have a local, regional or international impact. This follows the very biblical principle of tithing.
Mission Sunday, held every year (around October) is an opportunity to share with the church family both who we are supporting, and something of the heart of these organisations, all of which have a definite Christian emphasis.
Who are our Mission Partners and how are we allocating our £1,750 in 2017?
£325 – International – Zane: Zimbabwe A National Emergency
£325 – International – Tearfund
£300 – National – The Children’s Society
£300 – Local – The Woodworks Project, Bath
£300 – Local – The Carers’ Centre Bath
£200 – Local – Bibles for Children at St Julian’s Primary School
Why have we chosen to support these projects?
Our projects have been chosen on the following criteria:
• They are Christian charities/projects helping to further the growth of God’s Kingdom.
• We have direct links with them – there are able to give us feedback on where our money is going.
• We have given on a local, national and international basis.
How much money do we allocate each year?
We give away one tenth of the income we receive from the previous year. Our income for 2016 was £17,500. Our Mission giving for 2017 is therefore £1,750.
Who decides how we should give this money?
The PCC have delegated this responsibility to the Mission and Outreach Committee whose members are: Jane Rees (Chair), Pam Pike and Stewart Cole
My favourite charity isn’t represented, why not?
