TAP: For the benefit of clergy

15 March 2019

THE Church Times Train-A-Priest (TAP) Fund 2019 appeal is now open. We ask readers to recall the benefits that they have received over the years: if lay people, from the clergy who have served them faithfully; or, if clergy, from those who supported them through training.

The TAP Fund is a perfect way to repay past debts and to invest in the future: every penny given will find its way, through our partnership with the C of E’s Ministry Division, to those ordinands who are struggling most to keep their heads above water during training.

How to give:

GIVING online continues to be the easiest means of donating to TAP, and saves us time in processing payments: simply visit www.churchtimes.co.uk/train-a-priest-fund. As well as an explanation of the fund, with a bit of history, there is a link to a secure page for donations. There is also a downloadable leaflet about TAP, to print and distribute in your church.

Otherwise, we 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 a stamped addressed envelope. UK taxpayers: please boost your donation by making a Gift Aid declaration. Again, this can be done online.
