WILL YOU help to train a priest?

WILL YOU help to train a priest? Will you give to the Church Times Train-A-Priest (TAP) Fund, our unique Lenten appeal? As Lent goes on, please encourage your church or your friends to support TAP, too.

If you would like help promoting the Fund in your parish, chaplaincy or congregation, please write to: The Editor, Church Times, 33 Upper Street, London N1 0PN, marking the envelope “TAP leaflets”, and stating the number you require. Or email letters@churchtimes. co.uk.

The main TAP Fund helps married and single ordinands in full-time training for the priesthood in the Church of England. The dioceses can draw on it to support all candidates training in colleges. 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.

Taxpayers can increase their donations to TAP by an extra 28p in the £1 through Gift Aid. The Archbishops’ Council processes the tax claims on behalf of the Fund, and cheques need to be made out accordingly. Please use the Gift Aid form published last week.

Send donations to: TAP Fund, G. J. Palmer & Sons, 16 Blyburgate, Beccles, Suffolk NR34 9TB. If you wish to earmark a donation for either part of the Fund, please do so in a covering note. CAF or Sovereign Giving cheques are welcomed.
