NB: Capital Mass is an independent charity financially sustained by charitable gifts and donations
Dear Friends, As we enter our 4th year serving the parishes in the Diocese of London, we wanted to write to you about the future of Capital Mass.
Capital Mass has a clear mission, to engage and support every parish in the Diocese of London in tackling poverty and inequality. To outwork this mission we’ve delivered hundreds of hours of training events to over 1,200 parishioners. Created 110 resourcing and inspiring films (downloaded13,000 times). Connected parishes to over 150 partner organisations and delivered bespoke advice and guidance to 35% of parishes in London. And also housed 14 destitute migrants through our Clergy Hosting scheme. In our last annual impact review these were the highlights:
-92% commented that they’d increased volunteering hours to tackle poverty in London because of Capital Mass
-88% commented that their awareness of poverty in London had increased because of Capital Mass
-20% commented that they’d increased their prayer into the poverty issues in London because of Capital Mass
-13% commented that they’d started a new ministry or started to volunteer for the first time in order to respond to poverty in London because of Capital Mass
Going into 2019 and beyond, we now need to ask for your help.
If you’ve been directly supported by Capital Mass or if as a parish you’re aware of the good news that we’ve been to neighbouring parishes; would you consider financially partnering with us in order that we can continue to equip parishes to be good news into their community?
If you would, please do contact me in contact with Andy on 07802 692 214 or firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are an individual and would you’d like to give, maybe you’ve attended one of our events or one of the team has enabled you to tackle an issue in your community, then please see the links below
Thank you for your generosity
Andy Burns, Executive Director
