Part of Sunday Worship is giving our offerings to God, in acts of service and financial support. Unfortunately, whilst the church is closed and we are unable to take a physical collection at a Sunday service, the bills still keep coming!
If you are able, we would be very grateful if you could therefore consider making a donation, or pledging a regular amount, so that we can continue to operate in such difficult times. Payments can be made via TWINT or bank transfer (See payments page here). If you would like to pledge a regular amount, which helps us to plan and make best possible use of the income, please contact the Treasurer (in confidence) at treasurerzurich@anglican.ch
