THE BENEVOLENT FUND is a means of giving assistance to families in the wider community who are having a difficult time financially and are not able to go to the Food Bank.  Kentville Save Easy allows us to offer $50 food vouchers to these families which is in turn paid by the benevolent fund.  Support comes through PAR and on Communion Sundays, the loose offering is allocated to the fund.  If you would like to donate to the benevolent fund, you may do so by indicating Ben. Fund on the “other line” of your offering envelope.

Donations can be left at the church.
