LENT is over, but the Church Times annual appeal for the Train-A-Priest (TAP) Fund continues until Pentecost.
This year’s appeal has had a special focus on the unforeseen financial blows that ordinands are prey to. Many have sacrificed security to train for the priesthood, and any sort of cash crisis can create great anxiety.
We want them to know that they can turn to the TAP Fund for instant help, thanks to the efficient staff at the Ministry Division, who administer the money raised on our behalf. Please ensure that there is enough money in the fund to meet these increasing needs.
How to give
GIVING online is easiest for many donors, and for us. Simply visit www.hymnsam.co.uk/train-a-priest.aspx. This is a secure page with clear instructions.
We also accept cheques, postal orders, cash, and charity cheques, which should be sent to: TAP Fund, Church Times, 13a Hellesdon Park Road, Norwich NR6 5DR. If you would like an acknowledgement, please enclose an SAE.
UK taxpayers can boost their gift by making a Gift Aid declaration. Please do this on our online donations page.
Spread the word
PLEASE encourage other people to give to TAP, too. A leaflet can be downloaded from the Church Times website; and we encourage churches to hold a collection or fund-raising effort. And don’t forget TAP in your will.
