**TANZANIA GIFT DAY**

If you would like to contribute towards the Gift Day offering to support the building work at the Sanga Sanga Retreat Centre in Tanzania, please do make use of the special yellow envelopes which are available on the table at the back of the building.  Please mark the envelope MISSION/SANGA SANGA, and if you are able to gift aid your donation, complete the declaration on the envelope.  If you are not able to do this, please just score out the declaration.

When the offering is taken, only the contents of the yellow envelopes will be included in the Gift Day total.  Yellow envelopes handed in after today, 7th May 2017, will be added to the Gift Day total later, but blue envelopes and loose cash/cheques will be treated as regular giving to the general work of the church.  Please speak to Lynne Little (Rudloe), Michael Prior (Priory Street 9.15) or Roger Hammett (Priory Street 11.15) should you wish to clarify these arrangements.
