GIFT AID – SCOTTISH CONGREGATIONS

GIFT AID – SCOTTISH CONGREGATIONS

The UK tax authorities have asked charities to amend the Gift Aid declaration form for those contributors who make offerings to the God’s work.  My assistant, Jennifer McCullough has already sent the new forms to Congregational Treasurers.  I would respectfully ask that Congregational Treasurers ensure that all contributors have signed the new forms and pass them on to me at 3 Sunnybank Lane, Greetland, HALIFAX, HX4 8LN.  If anyone has any questions please do contact me on laurence.r.mackenzie@btinternet.com.  Our ability to continue, financially, as a denomination is completely dependent on reclaiming the tax you have paid on your contributions.  May the Lord bless you for your kindness.  If you are a UK tax-payer and are not currently contributing through Gift Aid I would urge you to prayerfully consider this matter; essentially it adds 20% to what you give to the work of Christ.  A Gift  Aid declaration form is available on our website: click here. 

Nec Tamen Consumebatur?

The APC has invited representatives of several Scottish Reformed churches in Scotland to participate in a forum with the aim of pursuing greater cooperation and unity amongst them.  The first meeting is to be chaired by Rev. Ian Hamilton of Cambridge Presbyterian Church, on 23 October 2012 in Perth.  We hope that all Christians concerned for Scotland’s churches and Scotland’s people will pray for God to give grace and wisdom to all participants.
