PASSIONTIDE already, and the running total in our Lenten appeal for the
Church Times Train-A-Priest (TAP) Fund stands at £74,445, thanks to
the efforts of our readers. That figure includes Gift Aid to be reclaimed, and
gifts earmarked for the Special Hardship Fund.
The Gift Aid form was printed in last week’s Church Times, will
appear next week, and is included in our full-colour TAP leaflets. These are
still available. The Fund stays open until Pentecost; so there is still plenty
of time to hold a special collection in church, or slip a leaflet in every
Leaflets will be sent promptly to those who request them. Stating how many,
write to the Editor, Church Times, 33 Upper Street, London N1 0PN;
email@example.com; or phone 020 7359 4570.
The TAP Fund helps married and single ordinands in full-time training for
the priesthood in the Church of England. The TAP Special Hardship Fund exists
to help any ordinand, training for the priesthood in the C of E, whose training
is jeopardised by unforeseen financial difficulty.
