Sheila explained the problem of the weekly offerings, when the collection is counted the envelopes would have the amount of the donation written on them.
These envelopes then have to be retained for 7 years for HMRC gift aid purposes.
During the time the Church has been closed, some of these offerings are being paid directly into the Church’s bank account and the envelopes discarded.
We should advise parishioners to hand in their next envelopes to the church with the amount paid into the bank written on them.
