It is now time to start considering the 2019 payments towards the M&M Fund.
The information is now being prepared to issue to Church treasurers and there no significant changes from the format previously used, but please check the details supplied before completing the forms. As last year, we have attempted to populate and 'personalise' some of the forms to assist in completion. This was requested by the Synod's F&P Group. It has not been possible to do this work for churches that are part of an LEP where specific calculations have to be made in accordance with the terms of the LEP. Please note the timetable. It will be very helpful if everyone can adhere to this - thanks.
Synod approved the current M&M scheme in November 2010. All churches are encouraged to use the new forms and return the completed one as soon as possible so that figures for 2019, and subsequent years, can be worked out quickly. Guidance on completion of the form is given in the document in the attachments listed below.
All Treasurers will receive an email with the details shown in the attachments (or sent by mail if email not available) so please make early contact with your Finance Networker if you wish to discuss your church's M&M offer for 2019. A similar set of information will be sent to all Ministers and Secretaries at the same time.
The forms are available in Excel only, but if you need software to use these files please look at our
Free Software you can Download page before you buy anything.
