LENT may be over, but the Church Times appeal for funds to support ordinands in Africa goes on for a few more weeks until Pentecost.
A quick reminder: a generous legacy is available to help C of E ordinands who find themselves in financial difficulties — the usual beneficiaries of the Train-A-Priest (TAP) Fund. Thus, all the donations given last year and this are being directed to those training for the priesthood in the African Provinces, where other forms of support are often non-existent.
So far this year, the total given is approaching £25,000. This is a great start, but the need we are trying to meet encourages us to ask once more: will you give to TAP Africa?
Every penn given goes direct to support an ordinand.
How to donate to the TAP Fund
We encourage you to donate online, quickly and securely. This is our preferred method: www.churchtimes.co.uk/train-a-priest-fund
We will accept donations in any shape and size, however. Please make cheques payable to “The TAP Fund” and send to: TAP Fund, Church Times, Hymns Ancient & Modern, 13a Hellesdon Road, Norwich NR6 5DR.
If you are a UK payer of income or capital gains tax, the Church Times, through the Hymns Ancient & Modern charity, can recover 25p for every £1 that you give through Gift Aid. If you are eligible, please indicate this when making an online donation, or complete the form in last week’s paper and send it with your cheque.
