有關購買Castle End Mission 教堂一事,我們已經在星期二交了訂金,因此六月初必須交付餘額以完成交易。感謝上帝,我們目前收到的認獻/奉獻及承諾的免息貸款大約有£593,000,當中包括奉獻£323,000及免息貸款£270,000。我們的籌款目標是£800,000 (註:除了£510,800是購堂費用外,其餘款項均是用作支付各項的手續費用及重修教堂的支出),因此目前尚欠的金額是£207,000。在此,我們盼望弟兄姊妹繼續切切為此事禱告,特別求主感動仍未參與其中的弟兄姊妹能夠積極參與。另外,我們也請各位填寫了認獻表格及曾經承諾提供免息貸款的弟兄姊妹切記要按時付款,否則教會戶口將會不夠資金準時繳付購堂費用的餘額。Regarding the purchase of Castle End Mission, we had already paid the deposit on Tuesday, and therefore we will need to pay the rest of the purchase fee by early June in order to complete the transaction. Thanks to our Lord, so far we have received a total of about £593,000 pledge-offerings/offerings and promised interest-free loans, including offerings £323,000 and interest-free loans £270,000. Since our fundraising target is £800,000 (note: apart from the church building purchase cost of £510,800, the rest of the money is used to cover all the administrative expenses and the cost of renovation of the church building), we currently still need to raise £207,000 more. Please continue to pray for this matter, especially pray that God will touch the hearts of brothers and sisters who have not yet participated to actively respond and get involved. Also, please be reminded to pay on time if you have filled the pledge-offering forms or have promised to provide the church interest-free loans. This is critical as otherwise the church will not have enough money in the bank account to pay the purchase fee on time.
