2030 Vision -  Action Plan 2021-2023

Kirk Session has agreed an ambitious 3-year Action Plan to take us well down the road towards our 2030 Vision. Built around 6 central aims, the Action Plan is very much a working document that will be updated regularly. The first update will add a stronger focus on our work with children, young people and families. 

If you'd like to know more about any aspect of the Action Plan, please contact Alan Miller on sessionclerk@stmichaels-parish.org.uk.

Giving to St Michael’s

Due to the pandemic, while we cannot physically attend church, you might be wondering how you can continue to support financially the work of St Michael’s and the wider Church of Scotland.  Those members who currently give through the Free Will Offering Scheme and who cannot hand in their envelopes might wish to consider one of the following options:

·         You could set up a monthly standing order for regular giving – please contact either Tim Brown on finance@stmichaels-parish.org.uk or Andrew Jones on giving@stmichaels-parish.org.uk and either Tim or Andrew will be able to send you a standing order form and advise on Gift Aid

·         You could make a one-off payment using the give.net button 

                                                                                                    

·         You could continue to set aside your weekly gifts and bring them to church once we are able to physically come together again.

 

 

 

Online Courses

St John's are beginning their next round of 'Learning Streams' from the week following 11th April for six or eight weeks, depending on the topic.  The courses are open to all and are online via Zoom.  All courses are free.
People can join as individuals or if a group wanted to join and be together during breakout room times that would be possible too.

Details can be found on the Linlithgow Churches website https://linlithgowchurches.org.uk/

Gift Aid Giving

Did you know that the church can claim 25p for every £ given if the donor is a UK taxpayer and signs a Gift Aid declaration? This is true whether payments are made by regular standing order, via freewill envelopes, or by other identifiable means. For more information, or to set up/amend an existing arrangement please contact the Gift Aid Convener in confidence - Andrew Jones – at giving@stmichaels-parish.org.uk or on 01506 840914.
