TAP fund

by
16 May 2014

EASTERTIDE continues, and there is still plenty of time to donate to the Church Times  Train-A-Priest (TAP) Fund, or organise a special collection or fund-raising effort. The grand total is not announced till the Friday before Pentecost (Whit Sunday).

If you are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the ordination of women to the priesthood in the Church of England, TAP presents a splendid opportunity to make an appropriate thankoffering. Grants from the Fund are made to both sexes. If you are organising a collection, a colour leaflet can be downloaded here (pdf). This will do all the explaning for you.

TAP grants are made to ordinands, married or single, 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. Anyone in training for the priesthood in the C of E - full- or part-time - can apply for a TAP Special Hardship grant in an emergency.

You can give by cheque, postal order, cash, and charity cheque. The Gift Aid form was last printed on 2 May (page 3). But many of our readers find it simplest to use our secure online giving page: www.hymnsam.co.uk/train-a-priest.aspx.

Please send other donations to: TAP Fund, Church Times, 13a Hellesdon Park Road, Norwich NR6 5DR. For an acknowledgement, please enclose a SAE. To earmark a donation for the Special Hardship Fund, please use a covering note.
