Due to lockdown, our church income has gone down greatly. We need
to close the gap between income and costs or we shall run out of
money before the end of this year.
Whether you can give or not, please pray about our finances and
thank God for his generous provision in all our lives. Thank you
for anything you can give.

For some of us, lockdown has brought savings –
no travel, lower petrol costs, no visits to the hairdresser, cinema,
theatre or sports events, no gym fees, no meeting friends at a café
for coffee and cake …
If you have made savings through lockdown, could
you share part of these savings with your church?
How to donate online
Did you know you can donate to any
of our WEP churches online? It’s as easy as online shopping
and you can use your debit or credit card or your PayPal account.
Here’s how it works:
1. Go to the Charities Aid Foundation
and click on the ‘Donate to a Charity’ button near the
top of the screen.
2. On the next page, in the middle
of the main picture, use the long search box to find us –
enter Woughton or our charity number 1172298.
3. In the results list, make sure
you click on the link for Woughton Ecumenical Partnership.
4. On the new page click on the
‘Donate to this charity’ button, select your payment
method and then simply continue to follow the on-screen instructions.
You can choose the amount you want
to donate, add Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer and, if you wish,
have your donation passed on anonymously to us. The first time you
use this online method, you will have to fill in some name and address
info but you can save that for future use if you wish.
If you want your donation to be
credited to one particular church, or even to a specific appeal
or fund, click the ‘Add special instructions’ box and
type the name of the church or fund into the message box that appears.
And a big ‘Thank you’ for any amount
you can give.
And don’t forget - you
can also donate direct from your bank account using your usual online
banking method. Simply ask your bank to pay:
