UP-DATE: END OF 2014 CHAPLAINCY APPEAL

After a year of consistently assisting known refugees as well as many others, it is time to get our housekeeping in order before the end of the year. Thank you to many who have made everything possible. The Treasurer's Report at this year's AGM was an impressive testament not only to our survival as a chaplaincy but also to reaching out generously to the marginalised. Currently we house and feed 10 homeless people and help many others in Istanbul.

Before the year ends, apart from our Advent Appeal and fuel bill needs, we need to raise "a modest" 5,000 pounds.

As of Saturday 25th Oct, 2 days after its launch, our appeal has been promised the equivalent of 1,393 pounds sterling. 

If anybody is in a position to contribute either in Istanbul or the UK (gift aided scheme), please do let the Chaplain (Ian) or Treasurer (Jonathan) know as soon as possible.

We use the occasion to gather non-perishable foods to offer those in desperate need.

If you can offer one bag with pasta, canned foods, rice, tea or whatever you think useful, it will be appreciated.

Please leave your offering under the Rood Screen at the church!
