During Heart for Home this year we raised over $26,000! Thank you so much for your generosity during this time. Below is more information about how much money was raised for each project.
Training for the Future
2022 Student Minister
Total Raised: $8,689
Seed-fund Future Staff
Total Raised: $5,943
Pitt Town has always been, and will continue to be, a training church. This money raised will enable us to employ a new Student Minister in 2022 who will work with us on Sundays to contribute to the ministry and to gain practical experience.
We want to keep on making space for people to come under the Lordship of Jesus. This money raised will go towards hiring a new staff member, full time, who will help make more space for more people to hear about the Good News of Jesus.
Turning spaces into places
Pitt Town Signage
Total Raised: $2,500
Wisemans Church air-conditioning
Total Raised: $2,649
Loving and welcoming people well when they come to our church for the first time is important to us. The money we raised for signage will enable us to make our signage around the property really clear.
Stone buildings can be icy cold in winter and boiling hot in summer. The money raised will go towards the cost of installing air conditioners in the church building at Wiseman’s Ferry so that it’s easier to focus on sitting under God’s word, praying to him, and loving one another without the distraction of regulating our core body temperature.
Alleviating the suffering of the Poor
Hawkesbury’s Helping Hands
Total Raised: $3,568
Anglican Aid COVID Crisis in India
Total Raised: $3,985
There are many poor and homeless people in our area and we want to love and serve them. The money raised above is a small but significant way we can show people the love of Christ as we live in this world.
Anglican Aid is responding to the COVID-19 crisis in India by supporting 2 Christian Hospitals in Northern India with essential supplies and equipment. With this money raised we can respond to urgent requests and help provide equipment like ventilators, monitors, PPE kits and food for the COVID patients.
What happens if we didn’t reach our targets?
Different projects will mean different things.
For our projects to help the poor, whatever we receive we’ll send on to those organisations. We’ll do this even if we don’t reach our targets.
For our People and Property projects if we don’t reach those targets we’ll bank and earmark that money and it will not be spent on anything else. We’ll wait until another year when there is money planned in the budget for those exact items and we’ll use the Heart for Home money then.
