On Thursday 3rd May we went to DHQ (area office) to discuss our budget proposals. After an hour's discussion and negotiation a budget was agreed. It is a challenging budget but one that can be achieve. To indicate the challenges we face I have included some figures from the last financial year.

During the period April 2006 to March 2007 our income from Sunday offerings and cartridges was £184.70p/week. Our expenditure on Insurance, Administration, Heating & Lighting was £193.47p/week. Obviously the costs of running our corps in 2007/2008 will increase so I would like to request that each of us reviews our personal giving to God. I am grateful to those of you who have already reviewed your giving, it is most encouraging.
