Let the Little Children.....

When the Tove Valley Centre is built, it will predominantly be as a result of the gifts brought to the Project by the members and congregation of Tove Valley Baptist Fellowship. Sunday 7th July was our "Gift Day" for 2019, where our members and friends were invited once again to make a lump sum donation to the Project, offer an interest free loan or pledge to begin donating on a monthly basis or to increase the amount that they have been giving month by month. Funds already available to the Project that has not been raised by these means include money raised at our fundraising events such as our "Music of the 60's and 70's with Fynnius Fogg" and Table Top sales, plus a few grants that we have been able to secure.
In addition to the above, we were all invited to bring along coins which the children enjoyed placing around the walls of a "to scale" outline of the plan of the building on the floor of the hall at Nicholas Hawksmoor School, where we currently meet each Sunday morning. Also, as you might expect, many of the gifts brought to the Project are not monetary, and Sunday morning was no exception. One of our members made a cake in the shape of the planned building, which we shared, along with a cup of tea or coffee mid-service. It was delicious!
