All Saints Hartford - Mission Giving 2021 Our Mission Giving in 2021 Back in 2017 the PCC took the decision to significantly increase its Mission Giving. We now give nearly 10% of our income annually to several organisations many based locally who are working to help people who are in real need and need support. In 2021 we gave £3,634 to the following organisations and it’s great to be able to share their appreciation and responses: Children’s Society £250 – Thank you so much it helps us in our work to transform the hopes and happiness of young people facing abuse, exploitation, and neglect. Fusion £960 – The Fusion Family and Youth Project appreciates the generous and regular monthly donation of £80 from Hartford Church. The aim of Fusion is to provide free activities throughout the year and during the school holidays. By doing this, the charity hopes to reduce anti-social behaviour by allowing the children and young people to take a break from day-to-day life. Godmanchester Food Bank £250 - Please thank all concerned for this generous donation. The Food Bank is grateful for the continued support that we receive from All Saints' Hartford. There are times when some donations 'dry up' and to maintain the balance and content of our parcels we then need to purchase supplies. This is the prime way that we use cash donations. Hinchingbrooke Hospital Chaplaincy £250 - With so many thanks to you for including us again in your giving, your generosity is much appreciated. Huntingdon Area Money Advice £420 - HAMA is a Christian charity providing free, reliable, confidential debt advice to anyone who needs it. Although all our volunteers are Christians and unpaid, we need considerable funding for professional fees, stationary, training etc. We do not give money to clients, but we often help with the considerable costs of legal insolvency, (11 so far in 2021) which is beyond the means of most clients. Debt can lead to depression, homelessness, suicide and as Christians we believe we show the love of Jesus in helping those in need. We have had over 100 referrals so far in 2021 and in the current circumstances we see this number increasing so we are so grateful to God for your support (we give HAMA £35 every month). Kairos Prison Ministry for their work in Littlehey Prison £250 - We really appreciate your church’s prayer and financial support. A team of around 20 Christians will be going into Littlehey Prison in April. The mission week will consist of talks, stories, bible readings and singing combined with the prisoners having group discussions about the talks. Kitegomba – Church of Uganda Primary School £400 – Dear brethren of All Saints Hartford, this donation is timely. The school has been closed for many months due to the lockdown and has no facility to offer online learning. School is reopening in January with class sizes of 70! Three of the classes - Elementary 1--3 have been out of operation for nearly two years now. We have used the money to acquire two computers for our library so that we have a way of receiving online communications, trainings meetings etc from the Ministry of Education regularly. Mid Cambs Women’s Refuge £250 (given as Tesco Vouchers) - How wonderful. The vouchers will really be appreciated. For safety reasons we are called Midcambs Refuge. All refuges try not to identify the area they are in as any information is only shared on an ‘as needed basis’. Unfortunately, perpetrators and abuse have no barriers - it never ceases to amaze us the extent abusers will go to find their victims. Royal British Legion £100 – Thank you. The Legion’s work is more vital than ever as we support people from all generations who have hardships because of Covid-19 such as struggling with social isolation, financial difficulties, and unemployment, losing loved ones, or facing the threat of homelessness. Through your participation we can continue to provide help to the people we support. Salvation Army for Kings Ripton Court £250 - Thank you for your kind donation given to the centre this Christmas. There are 36 young people (aged 16-25) who reside with us are vulnerable due to their homelessness and receive support to prepare them to move on to independent accommodation. Christmas can be a tough time for our young people as it often highlights the difficulties they experience with their families; difficulties which are often why they find themselves homeless in the first place. Thrive £250 - We are incredibly grateful for All Saints’ generosity. Please pass our thanks to the rest of your church family. Set up by the Diocese, Thrive Huntingdon runs weekly youth cafes in St Mary’s Brampton, All Saints in the Market Square Huntingdon, and St Barnabas Oxmoor as well as other work in schools. As Church Treasurer it is a real privilege to be able to contact these organisations with the news of our financial support and then hear their delight as to what it means to them and for those they are supporting. And it’s a joy to share this. Paul Fearon Treasurer
