Covid Care Fund

Posted: 17 April 2020

This season of uncertainty is likely to continue as the economic impact of Covid–19 grows. We know of many people already that have been stood down, made redundant or had their hours cut significantly. Many families with kids are cut off from family support and childcare, and many of our 4.30pm congregation are significantly impacted by the cuts experienced in part time and casual jobs. Through all of this, God is still sovereign and loves us immensely. 

Giving to the Covid Care Fund

This week we have been able to open the 'Covid Care Fund' through the Vine Church foundation. This is tax deductible to give towards, and will be administered by Kate Stace (our Director of Ministry Operations) and Scott Sanders (our treasurer) to our community members. Any amount that you are able to give is helpful and tax receipts will be issued at the end of June.

What could your giving go towards?

$50 – groceries
$150 – electricity bills and/or other costs
$300 upwards – covering a week's rent for someone who is no longer employed

There are two ways to give: 

1. Direct Deposit
Name: Vine Church Surry Hills
EFT: 062 033 | 1075 0624
Reference: 'Covid Care + Last Name 

2. Credit Card
