The parish’s accounts are kept up to date and regularly reviewed by the Finance Committee to ensure that we are on track for meeting our financial commitments for the year. Two of our main indicators are our total offertory collection and paying for the parish hall in Cranleigh. Both of these are largely on track with our plans. There is a chart showing this year’s progress pinned up in the porch of each church. The talents drive this year has raised £4,913, the most successful drive we have had. Well done everyone!
