It isn’t possible this year to use the gifting tree in the welcome area of the church as we normally do in the run-up to Christmas. But 2020 has posed extra pressures for our missionary families and we want to make sure they are still very aware of our partnership with them.
New for 2020…
So, this year, we have some new avenues to allow us to give financially at Christmas to our families serving abroad :
- by placing an envelope in the designated offering plate in the welcome area, labelled “Missionaries’ Christmas Gift”, along with your name and FWO number,
- by donating online (please use Trinity Presbyterian Mission Account: Sort Code 950252, Acc No. 61132636 and mark the narrative – ‘CG’, along with your name and FWO),
- by connecting to the doodle poll for the Balikbayan Box Wishlist – “Blessing Box” for the Philippines. (Here, Please select the item or items that you wish to purchase for the family. Each item can only be selected once but you may select multiple items if you wish. If an item is greyed out or cannot be selected it has already been chosen. Please leave gifts in the box in the church welcome area on a Sunday or in the box by arrangement with Alex in the church office. We would encourage everyone to also include a note with the gift or even a photo of you or your family.)
Please see Stephen’s email (14.12.20) for more details about all of the above.
