Update on Anna Chaplains

Home » News » Update on Anna Chaplains

GAP churches are rightly very proud of the work that has been achieved with our wonderful Anna Chaplains over the last six years and are very grateful to Debbie, Helen and Jonathan for all that they do.
You may be aware that we are beginning the process of recruiting to replace Helen Jesty when she finishes her three year period in April 2017. The Anna Chaplains have been funded during these past years by generous giving from members of both the Parish of the Resurrection and Alton Methodist Church, by the fantastic fundraising of smaller events organised by church members and the wider community, and by a large grant received from the National Connexion of the Methodist Church. Moving forward we have managed to secure an additional grant from the Bishop Radford Trust and we are thankful that this enables us to be near enough the target to go ahead and advertise this as another three year post. However another £3000 is needed, and as many grants are "one off" the future beyond 2020 will require larger grants or funds from new sources. If you are aware of particular sources we can approach then please do let either Liz George or Andrew Micklefield know.
