Congregations are being encouraged to participate in a National Giving Day on the day of their choosing between Sunday 5 September and Sunday 31 October 2021. This will provide people of all ages an opportunity to reflect on God's presence with us through these challenging times and to offer gifts of thanksgiving back to God.
Money received through this initiative will remain with participating congregations who will choose how to use these gifts. This money may be used to fund specific work, to launch a new project or simply to offset deficits, taking into account the challenging financial circumstances faced by many of our churches over the last year. Congregations can use the money locally or direct it towards projects at home or overseas, provided that it will be used in line with the charitable objectives of the Church.
The money raised through your congregation's involvement in the National Giving Day will not be assessable for Ministries and Mission purposes.
The Airmen and Women’s Prayer:
Pilot divine, and Lord of all on high
Yours are the starry squadrons of the sky!
Lead us whose wings for freedoms sake now soar,
Into our hearts Your faith and courage pour,
Oh hear our prayer.
Set our course for our trust is laid in Thee!
O You, who chartest all eternity!
Through cloud and sunshine and darkest night,
Guide our wings who battle for the right,
O, hear our prayer.
Father and Friend, in whose Almighty Name
We dedicate our lives to freedom’s flame,
Bless now our wings as on through space we wend.
Bless us who, to Your care, our souls commend,
O, hear our prayer.
