Special Offering

Dear friends,

As many of you would know by now, this coming Sunday (28th June) and the following one (5th July) sees our Special Offering for bringing John Batten onto our staff team from September.

Whilst we don’t have the capacity in our current budget to do this, we do feel as Elders, Trustees and a Leadership Team, that this is a God-given opportunity that we don’t want to miss. Employing John is a major step of faith for us as a church, as well as a major step of faith for John & Julie! We feel it will open up new avenues in the way we serve the church and are praying it will lead to much growth and Kingdom advance.

In this Special Offering, we are looking to raise £20,000 to enable us to cover John’s salary (and pension, employers National Insurance, expenses etc.) for a year or so. As is our custom, we are committed to tithing this offering, and so we will be giving 10% of it into the Devoted offering in the summer.

Please could you partner with us in this exciting and strategic step for us as a church?

You will be able to give by cash or cheque. There will also be pledge cards available where you can commit to giving a certain amount over a fixed period of time. If you want to give online through your bank, please do so using the reference of your surname followed by “SOJB”. Our sort code is 80-11-00 and our account number is 06068762. If you are a UK tax-payer and you are not yet using Gift Aid in your giving to Jubilee, you can download a Gift Aid form here. Please fill this out and return it to us on a Sunday or in the post. Thank you! If you'd like to complete your pledge card before Sunday you can download one here.
