St John’s Charities Support Group
St John’s Church has always seen charity support as a key part of its role, and currently 10% of its giving is passed directly to the nominated charities that it supports – currently CMS, Church Army and Water Aid.
Each of these has a representative in the Charities Support Group which is responsible for keeping the Church informed and updated on their activities. It also brings to the attention of the Church any other missionary opportunities that might have a particular interest or relevance, and liaises with the Vicar and congregation to organise the Lent and Harvest Appeals.
The group meets monthly, usually on Tuesdays, in a member’s home.
