A message from our Treasurer:
Due to the Virus Lockdown, Chorlton Unitarian Church will lose rental income of more than £16,000 and we will also lose about £6,000 from lost offertory donations on Sundays at Church.
We will survive financially, by using a significant part of our reserves. However, this could leave us vulnerable to other unforeseeable costs in the future, such as building repairs.
If you are not already donating to us, please consider making a monthly standing order donation to help us through this time. Bank details are shown below.
However, this is a difficult financial time for many of us. If making a donation might cause you any hardship or stress at all, then please do not make a donation. You are still a welcome member of our community.
