Finances during COVID19
MESSAGE FROM THE WARDENS
During this challenging time we know that some of our Church members and families will be under financial pressure. If you find yourself or family in financial difficulty, please let the Wardens know. You can contact us confidentially by email firstname.lastname@example.org or call on our mobile numbers.
Our church at Macquarie Anglican derives the vast majority of our income from the regular giving of parishioners, and our main expenditure is ministry staffing followed by property maintenance. The Wardens confirm their full commitment to all our current staff as planned for 2020. If you are able to give above your regular offering during this time, that would help offset any reduction in our income.
Current Finances - update to end June 2020
We appreciate people’s willingness to continue giving to Macquarie Anglican. Thank you to those who have decided to move over to electronic giving. Those with cash offertories are asked to contact the wardens to arrange collection. We are also thankful that the parish is eligible for significant Federal Government support programmes.
June results were strong, with a remarkable bounce in offertories restoring YTD offertory to budget, for which we are very grateful.

GIVING TO MISSION
