Treasurer's note

Charitable status

We are plodding on with the process of changing the legal status of the church to be a CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation). The current stage is the completion of a 32 page on-line form for the Charity Commission, quizzing us on every aspect of our work and our plans. Once that is submitted – very soon, we hope – we will wait to see when the Commission gets round to looking at it and whether we need to add to or explain any of what we have said.

Money matters

Best news at the moment is how kind some of Heath Street’s well-wishers have been in supporting our vestibule project. So far we have contributions large and small which, with Gift Aid, add up to £1,033. Many thanks to those who have been so generous – it is a great help.

Not too late to add a little more if you would like to. Now you can begin to see how good the space should look when it is finished you may feel keen to contribute!

You can put your donation in the Sunday plate (mark it for the Vestibule and if you are a UK taxpayer please put your name and address with it or your Church PIN if you have one and your agreement for us to claim Gift Aid which adds 25% at no cost to you). If you prefer to make a bank transfer, ask me for bank details when you see me or email me on


With love and good wishes,
