The day after the day after the result

I think the news has sunk in now about our Peoples Millions Victory – though we are also very pleased to hear that the project we were up against, the restoration of an ancient steam roller also won  £50K as the highest looser.

For those of you who might like to take a look, here are the links to some U tube footage taken when we were presented with the cheque:

Often clergy and their congregations understandably feel that church repairs and any fabric projects are a pain and a drain on resources. But I do believe that they can be turned into a real opportunity for growth. Developing a fund raising campaign and planning lots of events which both raise money and the profile and mission of the church can be a good way to encourage growth.

So if any paxtonvic readers feel overhwelmed by the need for church repairs, try and be positive, form an enthusiastic fund raising team, get praying  and see what might happen!

The snow has melted – time to inter some ashes and then get ready for Advent.
