Tearfund Emergency Coronavirus Appeal

Tearfund have launched an Emergency Coronavirus Appeal aimed at helping some of the most vulnerable and at risk communities around the world, such as the Rohingya refugee camps, where social distancing and hand washing is almost impossible. The scale of the work required in this emergency is huge, and so if possible, Tearfund need your help.

Whilst it is clear from Scripture that the primary responsibility for a church member with regard to giving is to their local church, the elders have decided that as a church we should support Tearfund in their appeal and ask that you would pray (see below) as well as considering whether you can give an additional financial gift to this appeal.

For those of you who would normally give by Standing Order or Direct Transfer from your bank, use the same details, but make sure to add, TFA along with reference number/name in the reference field.

Bank transfer or Standing Order
Sort Code: 83 51 00
Account Number: 19805319
Account Name: CBC Donations
Reference: Your Name or Donor Reference Number – TFA

If you are not able to do this, and would like to contribute to this appeal, then you should send a cheque, made out to ‘Charlotte Baptist Chapel‘ with details as shown below. Also please add the words ‘Tearfund Appeal’ clearly on the back of the cheque. Mail will be picked up periodically and any cheques paid in to the bank.

Alternately, If you wish, you can use the “Give Online” button under the Giving section of our Church Website. Please add a note to say this is for the Tear Fund Appeal.

We will pass all gifts plus eligible gift aid reclaims on to Tearfund
