Treasurer's Report

David Fell was appointed Treasurer at the 2016 AGM and has been responsible for the accounts throughout the year.

St Peter’s has again been blessed with some generous giving, but the concern is that two-thirds of our total income comes from our regular givers. Notwithstanding this, the income for the year has been maintained. 

Expenditure has been lower than budget, due to reduced heating costs, but 2017 has already shown an increase. We have paid our Parish Share in full and agreed to do so again in 2017. However, maintenance to the church roof and north wall need to be addressed as a matter of urgency, this will be a challenge for all concerned.

The PCC has approved a budget for 2017 which will cover costs, but leaves little to contribute to mission.

Our thanks go to Peter Tomkins, who has acted as Independent Examiner for 2016.
