ST TUDY PARISH MEETING FEEDBACK
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who came to the Parish meeting in St Tudy Village Hall in October.
The PCC was delighted by the turnout, which for some was standing room only, and gratified by the level of support voiced.
The meeting, co-chaired by Rev Steve Williams and Rev Robin Thwaites, was called to explain the financial plight of our churches leading to concern that they may be closed. We are particularly grateful to everyone who has since pledged to make monthly or annual donations.
It is early days yet and we know more have promised regular gifts starting this month or in the New Year. This is already making a difference in addressing the shortfall between regular income and essential maintenance costs.
Anyone wishing to make a donation can do so by BACS to St Tudy with Michaelstow PCC, Sort code 60-83-01 and account No 20453394. Standing Order and Gift Aid Forms can be obtained by contacting either me or Zara Teague, the PCC’s Treasurer, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Like everything in life, it is not all about money. Medieval churches especially Grade 1 listed churches like ours also need man and woman power to keep them going.
Another aim of this meeting was to recruit willing helpers, non-churchgoers, to assist with events and activities. Again, it is early days but so far no one has come forward.
Meanwhile if anyone has any ideas for fundraising or other events to support our two churches in St Tudy and Michaelstow please let either me or any other member of the PCC know.
The PCC has a debriefing meeting after this Magazine’s deadline then it expects to bring more news in the next editions.
