Give to TAP and spread the word

04 April 2014

IT IS already almost Passiontide, but there is still plenty of time to give to our unique Lenten appeal for the Church Times Train-A-Priest (TAP) Fund, if you haven't already. Will YOU help to train a priest?

There is also plenty of time to organise a special collection or a fund-raising effort for this year's appeal, as it stays open throughout Eastertide. To help you to spread the word about TAP, we have produced a colour leaflet that explains what TAP is all about, and which includes a Gift Aid form, and this can be downloaded here (PDF).

If you are a UK taxpayer, a Gift Aid declaration increases the value of your donation significantly. The Gift Aid form has also been printed in past issues of the Church Times.

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 - in a college, in a course, or an OLM scheme - can apply for a Hardship grant if he or she experiences financial difficulties.

You can give by cheque, postal order, cash, and charity cheque. But many of our readers find that the simplest way to give is by means of 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.
