So thankful to those of you who are giving regularly, or occasionally and those that advertise with us. Keep doing it, it really helps to keep us afloat.

It's our 14th birthday and 1 year since we launched our new website and rebranded. A lot has happened since then and it's all very exciting and Network Leeds is full of hopeful potential.

This financial information is based on actual figures to 31st May 2017 and although there are no surprises, and income through giving and advertising has increased, there is still a current deficit of £3500. This averages out at £600 a month and in April the average shortfall then was £946 - so it's not all bad news!

The predicted shortfall for 2017 is £7288 less the £1071 2016 surplus; making a total shortfall of £6217.This is going to be a challenge, not least because this is the first year in 14 years that we have not received any funding what so ever from LCCT! God is faithful and has provided for us for the past 14 years, it's not been easy but we are very grateful to a a few individuals, a church and a denomination that in past years have given over £1000, £2000 and £5000 each. Please pray with us that God will release some large sums of money.

If you'd like to make a donation towards reducing the current actual shortfall of £3500, we'd very much appreciate you donating online or other options can be found on our funding page.

Our financial update for July is based on advertising sales to the end of July. We have generated £3051 so far this year through advertising, which is 10% higher than we expected. Please keep doing this, and if you've not tried it yet, can we encourage you to do so, it's a win win solution for you and for us.

We are still pursuing the option of annual funding with two other denominations and this is an ongoing process. Please pray that funding will be re-directed to Network Leeds soon.
