THERE is less than one week to go before we tally up this year's
donations to the Church Times Train-A-Priest (TAP)
Have you given to TAP yet? Every penny donated by our readers
goes to the maintenance of the next generation of priests. Money
can be tight during the months of training, and, besides the normal
TAP grant, ordinands can apply to the Special Hardship Fund for
financial assistance if, during their training, they experience
Readers often like to give as a gesture of thanks for their own
ordination, or that of their priest. A colour leaflet explaining
how TAP helps to provide for ordinands can
be downloaded here (PDF document).
You can give by cheque, postal order, cash, and charity cheque.
The Gift Aid form was printed on page 3 last week. 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 an SAE. To earmark a donation for the Special
Hardship Fund, please use a covering note.
