Finances at St. Luke's
It is estimated that it will costs over £78,000 to run St. Luke's in 2018 (not including running the Hall, which pays for itself).
That's around £1,500 per week.
We raise most of our money through the generous giving of St. Luke's members.
Many plan to give so much a month and those who are tax payers gift-aid that so that we receive an extra 25% from the government. At the start of 2018 we expected to receive around £40,000 from such 'Planned Giving', £2,000 carried forward from last year and £2,000 of other income to pay our way.
We need to raise around £30,000 in 2018 in addition to the 'Planned Giving' from loose collections, one off gifts and fund raising in order to pay our way in 2018. In 2017 we actually raised slightly more than that in this way, but that did include some very large and generous one off gifts that are unlikely to be repeated. So, at present it is not clear how we will raise all these funds, but we trust that God will provide.
