2008 - another year of growth in mission through our buildings

2008 saw a record year in the income received through the lettings of our buildings and in the times that they were in use for worship, training, meetings, children's work, and community groups.

We received almost £18000 in income and the buildings were occupied around two-thirds of the available times. £1800 of this income goes straight to support charitable work at home and abroad. The rest is used to pay costs and to support the mission of St Paul's Church in serving our neighbourhood.

People came into our buildings more than ten thousand times in the course of the year.

We praise God that such good work and enterprising use is made of what we have and that so many people engage in worthwhile activities among us.

This wouldn't be possible without hard work by a number of key people behind the scenes. We're very grateful to Wendy, Sue and Cynthia for all that they do to support this vital ministry.
