Christian Stewardship:

Our Giving on Sundays is always about our response to God’s love for us, not just about paying the bills ‘Count your blessings,’ they say!

It costs around 7,420€ each month to maintain our chaplaincy ministry. Unlike other Diocese in the C/E, the Diocese of Europe does not provide Chaplaincies with any financial support for ministry. Our income so far this year is around 34% down on what we need to raise.

Thank you for your support.  

Please remember that our return to church is strictly governed but the Spanish Government’s laws, FEREDE (the Ministry of Justice agency governing non-Catholic churches) and our own Diocesan guidelines.

Please read the guidelines below on attending church

Lord Jesus Christ, 

you said to your disciples, ‘I am with you always’. 

Be with me today, as I offer myself to you. 

Hear my prayers for others and for myself, 

and keep me in your care. Amen. 

To meet the rules and regulations governing our return, we will need your help - and ask everyone attending to please:

  • Make use of hand gel as you enter the church (even if you are gloved)

  • Wear face masks

  • Sit in the allocated seats – starting from the front (back at Los Boliches) and where a service order has been placed. Those from the same household may sit together.

  • Keep to the 2m social distancing.

  • Holy Communion will be given in one kind (wafer alone) and please make sure your hand is open to receive the wafer.

  • There will be a retiring collection

  • Please leave as directed, starting from the back (front at Los Boliches) of church.

  • Sadly there can be no singing in these early weeks of returning.

Supporting your Chaplaincy during this difficult time:

 

A big thank you to all those who have brought in their offertory and stewardship envelopes, which have been a great help and support for Chaplaincy ministry. Even though we about to start gathering again for worship, it’s still possible to arrange a bank transfer to support our ministry here, either to our Spanish or UK accounts. If you have any questions about this, please have a word with our Treasurer, Graham Bloor.
