St John's Church, Harpenden - We support

We "support" in two ways - firstly we support each other as part of the larger Christian family, and secondly we support those less well off than ourselves.  We give this support in a number of ways:

Directly, through financial and other assistance.  Our policy is to give 10% of our income to charitable causes.  For 2016, the Parochial Church Council (PCC) determined that the Charities we support are as follows:

Embrace the Middle East (We are supporting this Charity for 3 years - from 2014 to 2016) [30%]

Church Urban Fund [20%]

Church Aid [20%]

St Albans & District Foodbank [20%]

The PCC decided not to allocate 10% of our funds immediately, so as to have funds available to meet urgent needs or sudden emergencies (such as a new refugee crisis)
 

We support a number of other Charitable causes through special collections - eg Crisis, whom we support at Christmas.
