Thank you to everyone who has been able to offer financial support to this campaign to fund the Bishop over the next 5 years. It is exciting to see that a total of 78 people, couples or groups have been able to offer some level of support. We are very grateful.

16 contributions have been one off payments and together these come to $10,700.

There are 17 annual givers, 25 monthly givers, 10 fortnightly givers and 10 giving weekly.

The total of regular givers funding will be just over $20,000 per annum if everyone is able to sustain this giving.

Thank you to all those of you who have made a decision to and been able to support in this way. Thank you to those who continue to hold us all in prayer. God’s Spirit is clearly moving in the Diocese and it will be exciting to see where it leads us.

Tax receipts for donations to the Bishops Fund will be sent out in late April

Yours in Christ
Alec Clark

From Daily Devotions for Saturday Morning:
God of opportunity and change,
praise to you for giving us life at this critical time.
As our horizons extend, keep us loyal to our past;
as our dangers increase, help us to prepare the future;
keep us trusting and hopeful,
ready to recognise your kingdom as it comes. AMEN.

A Prayer for our Diocese

O Lord, who has not stopped forming us
since the hour of our beginning;

Who has come among us to save us from ourselves
and to teach us to love;

Who dwells beside us and within us
and below us and above us,

Give us the grace to think again.
May we know the joy of true discipleship;

May our relationships with you
and with each other
be real and deep;

May we have the courage to give our best for the least.
In the name of Jesus our Lord. Amen.
