Giving by Trinity
Each year the church gives a proportion of its income to a number of local, national and international charities nominated and voted for by church members. We aim to give 10% of our total church income and in 2019/20 we gave £12,000 including £1,000 to each of 7 charities selected by means of a congregational vote. The selected charities were:-
Child Rescue Nepal
Refugee and Migrant Network
St Raphael's Hospice
Sutton Mental Health Foundation
For 2020/21, due to the impact of Covid on Trinity's financial position, it has been agreed that the donations will be at a lower level but including £5000, £500 to each of 5 charities, to be voted on by the congregation, Initially members will be invited to suggest up to 5 charities each, then the most popular charities will be included in a list for a vote by members..
Trinity also supports appeals that are announced by the Disasters Emergency Committee. When such an appeal is announced, Trinity holds a retiring collection for the following two Sundays in support of the appeal.
The loose cash offerings at our Churches Uniting in Central Sutton united services are given to designated charities.
Our Junior Church undertakes fundraising by a number of methods in support of both domestic and overseas causes, raising considerable sums of money and also adding to the children’s learning experience.
Trinity members are very active in raising money for organisations such as Christian Aid.
