GIVING AT ST SAVIOURS – 2018

The Archdeacon writes…

It has been a great joy to me to have become more closely involved at St Saviour’s over the past
few months. The church has a wonderful tradition of worship and prayer and offers a unique
Christian witness in central Eastbourne. Looking towards the future, there are many opportunities
for mission and service which I hope can be explored, and I am confident that the parish has an
exciting future ahead as well as one hundred and fifty years of distinguished history. Please may
I encourage you to read carefully the letter below from the chair of the Finance Committee below
which will give further information about what is needed to sustain this wonderful parish.
With my prayers and best wishes for 2018
Fr Edward Dowler Archdeacon of Hastings

Dear members of the Please direct any questions on the budget or

with increases in our Parish Ministry Contribution,
insurance and running costs for St Saviour’s
and the quinquennial review of church buildings
planned for this coming year.

The Finance Committee have produced an annual
budget for 2018 which was approved by PCC and
shows a shortfall of £8400 (8% of our income). It
is important that you are aware of our challenging
financial position and details of the 2018 budget

During my time at St Saviours I have been
impressed by the selfless giving of skills, time and
love from many people at St Saviours. Please
may I urge you to prayerfully review your giving
and consider whether is there more that you can
do to support St Saviours so that it can flourish for
the next 150 years.

There are many different ways you can give at
St Saviours so do please contact the Wardens or
