WILL you help to train a priest? Will you follow the inspiring example of those who have already given to the Church Times Train-A-Priest (TAP) Fund this Lent?

Since our unique Lenten appeal was launched last week, £1323.25 has already arrived, bringing this year's total so far to £11,514.89. Every ordinand, married or single, receives a TAP grant if he or sheis in full-time training for the priesthood in the C of E.

In addition, ten per cent of every donation goes into the Special Hardship Fund, to support any ordinand training for the priesthood - in a college, in a course, or an OLM scheme - who experiences unforeseen financial difficulties.

How to give

YOU can give by cheque, postal orders, cash, and charity cheque. But many of our readers findthat the simplest way to give is by means of the online giving page: www.hymnsam.co.uk/train-a-priest.aspx. This is a secure page, andso your donation can be givensafely.

Please send other donations to our Norwich office: TAP Fund, Church Times, 13a Hellesdon Park Road, Norwich NR6 5DR. If you would like an acknowledgement, please enclose a stamped addressed envelope.

If you are a UK taxpayer, you can increase your donation by making a Gift Aid declaration. You can do this on our online donations page, or, if sending a cheque, by using the form on this page.

We encourage churches to hold a special collection or fund-raising effort. Please set us know about them. A colour leaflet can be downloaded here (PDF).
