Bite size update - January 2017
View all news
We have made it to the beginning of 2017 which is absolutely wonderful! So thankful to those of you who are giving regularly, or occasionally and those that advertise with us. Thank you for those that are starting to respond to the Members Annual Giving.
Last month I said that I would be able to provide the actual year end figures for 2016 and I am delighted to report we had a surplus of £1071, which is fantastic news! It is so encouraging to actually start the year with some of this years needs already provided.
The predicted shortfall for 2017 is £8639 less the £1071 surplus, which means we have £7568 to find; an extra £630 a month is needed! 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 from LCCT!
Our financial update for January is based on the actual's to the end of December and advertising has been quite slow this month, but is about the same as this time last year. We now need this to pick up.
We are still pursuing the option of Partnership with other denominations and this is an ongoing process. Please pray that funding will be re-directed to Network Leeds by June.
