Support Us

We rely on our church family to support our work, through a variety of means.

There are many ways to give to the work of All Saints, Kesgrave – in time, skills, and financial resources.

To donate your time, skills and energy to the church, please contact Robin directly (see our ‘Contact Us’ page).

 

The Farmhouse Pub hold a quiz on a Wednesday evening and they donate the proceeds to ASK on the last Wednesday of the month. At £1 per person, for teams of between 2-6 people, it is an easy way to support your local Church. The quiz is from 9pm-10.45pm and 1st, 2nd, 3rd prizes are for pub meal vouchers and the winning team has the chance to win a cash prize. Contact the Farmhouse Pub (01473 611600) for more information or turn up and give it a go!

 

The following documents provide further information on donating funds (both Regular Giving, known as ‘Stewardship’, and Occasional Giving).

Give as You Live- for free!

For anyone that performs web-searchers or shops online from Amazon, eBay, John Lewis, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and many other subscribing retailers, there’s a new way you can give more to All Saints Church without it costing you a penny! Simply register with http://www.giveasyoulive.com/howitworks and perform your web searches or shop via their page. 1%-1.5% of the value of purchases then come to All Saints, and every few web searches raise 1p (it soon adds up!). This works on computers or smart-phones.

When choosing your Charity, we suggest you choose our “Kesgrave Church of England Charity”, which means that funds can be used for regular costs such as youthworker and parish administrator. If you choose instead the “Parish Trust” the money instead goes into a permanent endowment where only the interest can be used by All Saints.

If you use the web please give this a try- it’s so easy and every little makes a difference! Many thanks for your help, John Wittgreffe, Funding Officer.

 

Annual Sponsored Bike Ride

Saturday 8th September 2018, 9am to 5pm

This is a great opportunity to raise money for our church and visit other historic churches in the area, some of which are normally closed.

The idea is you make up a route between as many churches as you like and then have friends and family sponsor you to complete your journey by cycling or walking. Half the sponsorship money you raise comes straight back to ASK and the rest is given to Suffolk Historic Churches Trust who assist local churches who are facing redundancy and closure. Sponsorship can now be arranged on JustGiving.com to make raising money easier. There are over 40 churches taking part in Ipswich so if you are interested then contact me for a sponsorship form and more information.

If you are not up to taking part please consider if you would be available for an hour on the day to welcome cyclists, sign their forms and offer them refreshments. If so I would be grateful if you could sign the form in the church porch when this becomes available later in the year.

Any questions, catch me in church or contact me on 01473 333435, cha.markham@btinternet.com

Many thanks, Maria Corcoran
