Graeme Pringle 19/06/15  News Story – Support Fund Meeting for 2016

Each year since 2011, an annual Support Fund meeting has agreed the amount that each deanery is to pay into, or receive from, the Support Fund in the following year. It is through generous giving to the Support Fund that our ministry and mission are able to continue in the poorer areas of the diocese. On Saturday 13th June in Wellesbourne, two representatives from each deanery (apart from two deaneries which only had one representative) gathered for the meeting to agree the payments for 2016.
