• Christ Church Heiloo Gift Day 2017

    Gift Day 2017, Sunday 19th November

    Following our pattern for the last few years, we will be holding our annual gift day this month on Sunday 19th November. The Leadership Team invites you to consider if you are able to make a one-off financial gift towards God’s work through Christ Church Heiloo. Many in the church family already give generously week-by-week or month-by-month, so please feel no pressure to give more if you are unable to. “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9.7).

    All gifts will help us meet our congregation’s budget for 2017. Gifts can be paid into the Christ Church Heiloo bank account (IBAN: NL34RABO0363484051) or placed in the Sunday collection in an envelope, before or on the Gift Day (Sunday 19th November). In both cases please mark them ‘Gift Day 2017’. Blank envelopes will be available on the info table at church on Sunday.
