Mission Group Update:
- Family Works: We have had advice from Family Works regarding the Food Bank, and they are fairly well stocked with breakfast cereals at present but are in need of such things as spreads and jams to have on bread or toast.
- Buy & Supply News: The funds raised on our two Buy and Supply tables this month will go to Family Support ( formerly Birthright ) for help with prescription costs, and also essential health items such as cough mixture. Over the December/January period $84 was raised and this has been forwarded to Family Works for help with school uniforms. Please support the Mission Group’s worthwhile initiative by buying, supplying or both!
Access to St Stephens: If you need a key to access the St Stephens complex, please contact one of our Parish Council members who will have a key for you to borrow. Phone numbers in the Information Manual on the table in the Foyer, or you can arrange to borrow a key from the Office, Tuesday to Friday 9am to 3pm.
Half way through the financial year. Expected income $155534 vs actual income of $160221 so $4687 ahead. We are a little behind in anticipated giving and fundraising but a little ahead on interest and property receipts (a reflection of increased usage of buildings by various groups). Expenditure is tracking pretty close to expected ($180430 vs $180552) so currently tracking better than what we were expecting. However we have a couple of unexpected repairs to fund in the next quarter so anticipate a deterioration in financial position at next report.
