Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Kingsland Church Colchester to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Kingsland Church Colchester we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Kingsland Church Colchester to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Kingsland Church Colchester will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Kingsland Church Colchester receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

A Weekly Hiya,
from Kingsland Church

Hiya

25 January 2022

Hiya web, trust you’re having a good week.

I have to say that January has been so much better than I expected so far. I suspected the centre would be empty, the cafe would be empty and the church would be fairly empty too, but I have to say I ‘ve been so pleased that only one group cancelled their booking with the centre, people are still using the cafe sensibly and the services seem very busy on Sundays and Wednesdays. What I thought could be a dreadful start to 2022 has in fact been a surprisingly good one. I think every room in the centre was in use last night, there were over 100 kids in the groups on Sunday at 11 and the cafe is busy today with school groups, CYO, a discipleship group, a choir, dance parents, friendship groups and people dropping in for coffee. Nice.

By Sunday the restrictions will be lifted slightly. We’re no longer required to wear masks as we gather together in worship. We will keep the area on the left as you go in for people who wish to wear a mask throughout the service, and of course you are more than welcome to wear one wherever you sit. I believe we are still encouraged to test before we gather, so please do that, and of course if you are displaying symptoms please keep the rest of us safe by watching online.

It’s Connections on Sunday week, 7th February. This is for people who are wanting to find out more about Kingsland  or make Kingsland their church. As we emerge from the pandemic we find that there are people who have journeyed with us for a while , or plan to join in now, so we want to encourage them to find out more or to be part of  our Church partnership so that we can move forward together. Connections is the way to that.

So grateful to those who have volunteered to help at the Free Family Fun Day on the 19th feb. It’s the easiest thing to invite young families to, so please make the most of the opportunity and invite people. We had 900 people visit during the FFF day a couple of years ago, I suspect there’ll be fewer this year but it still could be glorious!

Lots of the groups are happening this week. I so grateful to the people who are leading these fantastic expressions of church and life. There is a 24 hour worship wave with MIW starting on line at 8pm on Friday. The section from 2pm Saturday is being hosted from here and the Colchester team invite you to join with them for any of the time between 2 and 8pm on Saturday. Turn up here or register online via www.MIW.org.uk to participate online.

Tomorrow The Kingsland community gospel choir start properly. All adults are welcome, there are no auditions and it starts at 7:15pm Wed 

Dickie bird is speaking at Wednesday at 1 tomorrow

Samuel and Grace are running the marriage course starting next week. Tues 1st on Zoom at 8pm. You don’t have to have problems in your marriage to make it better, so whether you are preparing for marriage, new to it all or just want to refresh your relationship a bit, this is a great opportunity. It’s also ideal to for couples who are blending families as Samuel and Grace are adding a couple of extra sessions for this.

Listening Ear is happening next Wed, 2nd Feb. This is a brilliant opportunity to talk! Sometimes you just need a listening ear and this is simply that. 7 till 8.30 

All the other groups in the leaflet attached are open to you

So I thought this month would be dull, boring, quiet and uninteresting. How wrong can you be? I’m so pleased that we planned for more than that, can offer more than that and God is doing more than that.

Must go,

grace and peace,

Neil

11 January 2022
Hiya web, trust you’re having a good week

I’m so pleased that so many of the groups have started this week. I did the video for the discipleship groups yesterday (you can watch it here https://youtu.be/DC8U-WwnVJY  – some of the groups use it in their meetings, others watch it beforehand.) Discipleship groups are a great way of practicalising (Is that word? Should be) the things we think about on Sunday mornings and applying them to our lives so we become whole-life disciples of Jesus. I’m sure that’s part of Gods commitment to finish what he started in us!

As well as the discipleship groups there’s loads going on. Do you have a look at the attached leaflet. Some of these things are courses, some are monthly, some are drop -ins and some are ongoing commitments. Please have a read because I’m sure there’s someone you know who could benefit from being part of this community too

Of course one of the best things that we do is Alpha, and it’s a delight that we are able to offer alpha online and in person on the 17th January, that’s next Monday. Please plan to invite someone either to the building here or to Alpha zoom room 83033502318. Marvellous

Another good thing we do is Connections – its the way into partnership here . web, you are very welcome to our next session which is after the second service on Sun 6th Feb – we’ll start about 12.45 and finish by 2

As I said on Sunday, I love some of the things that we are doing as a partnership. Mark at Korban is facilitating a night stop program  – a bed for a night or 3 for young people at risk of homelessness. He spoke about this at a service before Christmas and there is a Q&A session on Thursday at 7 pm on zoom. Pre registering is essential,  here https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJMsdu-hqD4vGd13Bi2vrnwklhftEyUxcoFM

Michelle and the MIW team are participating in Worship Wave, an international 24 hour worship event. Part of it will be led live from Kingsland from 2 – 2.45pm on Sat 29th Jan by our team. A live stream will be available in Shekinah 2pm – 8pm, you are welcome to join in, or register online via MIW.org.uk to participate online (Fri 8pm – Sat 8pm).

 

And here are a few dates for your 2022 diary…. 

Sat 19th Feb  we’d love to organise a family fun day at the church and in the car park. 2 years ago we had 900 people enjoying a host of activities, bouncy castle face painting music, the cafe some sports create games and family activities, can we do it again?

Sun 27th Feb guest speaker, our friend David Campbell, the Elim regional director will be with us for the morning services

Sat 19th March Walk worthy men’s conference. Yay!

Sat 7th May, planning a prophetic intensive, a training day at church. Oooh

Sun 5th June 10.30 colchester churches Pentecost morning service at Charter Hall. Wow!

1-3 July (fri Eve to sun pm) Kingsland away weekend at Sizewell hall, house and camping. glory! 

Sat 22nd sept free family Fun Festival castle park Colchester. Yes! 

Of course it’s a faith step to think these can go ahead. Some of this faith is grateful  expectation that people will step forward to be involved, some that finances will be forthcoming, some that we will be allowed to do it and some that people will be confident enough to come along join in. Please pray!

Have a great week

Grace and peace

Neil

04 January 2022

Hiya web, trust you’re having a good week

Happy new year! May it be a good’un as we rise above the year of the duck! 

This week we are praying together, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 7:30 in shekinah or  on zoom, in our usual zoom room 589 493 2558, password coffee. Please be part f it as we pray for this year

Wednesday at 1 starts again tomorrow, and the discipleship groups start again next week. We will be looking together at Phillipians for a few weeks on Sunday morning and in the groups (I need a decent title) and I’m excited at the way that the groups will make the teaching even more relevant and practical as we discover what discipleship looks like in this season.

Our next steps leaflet outlines a whole load of other groups and activities which are available to you and your friends. I’ve attached the leaflet; Groups on next week include Grieftalk (Monday 10.30) and Widowtalk (thurs 10.30), the what’s app book club, wed bible study at 11am, 4business* (Monday 7.45pm) little stars toddler group (mon 10am) the Kingsland community its gospel choir (wed 7.15), board games* (Fri 14 8pm), netball (wed 6pm at st Benedict’s), table tennis (fri 7.30), Creative worship with MIW* (tues 8pm) and prayer for the nations (fri 11am). All of those are here in the Centre apart from netball and all apart from the 3  with the * are weekly opportunities. The * ones are monthly but are meeting next week. There are a variety of other groups starting later this month or next. 

There’s also the weekday prayer in tongues on Zoom –  589 493 2558 password coffee  – from 8.15 each morning for 30 minutes.  

Defib and CPR training on Monday 10th at 10am and again thurs 13th at 8pm

And Alpha starts on Mon 17th, 7.45. There are 2 alphas at the same time, one in the cafe with Vivienne and Karen, one online with Yas on Zoom 8303 350 2318 

It’s good to feel we are getting going again!

As a leadership we have decided not to deconstructed away from the larger Sunday and Wednesday gatherings where we trust people come for inspiration, interaction and encouragement. These events are so good for worship, setting culture, hearing something together, meeting people different from us etc. We do believe strongly in the value of these celebrations.

We also really value the small group opportunity to connect at a deeper level, work it out together and develop spiritual relationship. Small groups and small group activities are great places to be church in circles. Please join in and make the most of Kingsland. 

We have yet to hear of any developments downstairs. We are told there is a very interested party, keen to take the Aldi unit for three years, but nothing has happened as yet. I’ll let you know when I hear anything. In the meantime we continue to develop the ministry of the church particularly through the hubs outlined in the Next Steps leaflet. 

have a good week and a wonderful 2022

grace and peace

Hiya

23 December 2021

hiya, trust you’re having a good week.

It’s been quiet here since Sunday, but what a great day that was! It was so good to be with the children in the morning and Comedians and Carols was just marvellous. I’m told we will likely be seeing Laura Lexx on the small screen next year, deservedly so – she was brilliant.

Plans for the community carols in the car park at 5pm are forging ahead. Thank you to everyone who has offered to do something wonderful for this. We have a few dozen christingles, promises of lots of eatables, plans for hot chocolate and mulled punch,  a few activities and of course carols and readings etc. Should be fun. Please pray it stays dry till after the event. If it’s raining we’ll move inside but we’re reluctant to do that. Because it’s in the car park please don’t bring cars to the centre unless you have mobility issues, thanks 

Christmas morning 10.30 here should be fun. Promise.

On Sunday 26th we have just one service at 11 am. Again, if you are coming to this please would you park offsite. Aldi have agreed terms to let downstairs to another supermarket and they are here to inspect it on Sunday. So it would be  really helpful if their car park was clear so we get off to a good footing with them. It’s all with the solicitors at the moment, we are awaiting developments.

The centre is closed next week except for a few bookings

We are looking forward to New Year’s Eve though, 10:30 am for a Crossover service. These are always very special.

If you’re still stuck for that perfect present, have you considered our bookshop? There’s some beautiful bibles and lots of great books to feed the soul

So that just leaves me to wish you a very happy Christmas and may we know Gods peace, joy  and blessing in every area of our lives in the coming year

Grace and peace

 

Neil

An extra Hiya – plan B

10 December 2021

Hi web,

I’m sure you know that the government have moved us to Plan B.

The main difference for us is that people over 12 attending church services now will have to wear masks. Unlike under previous restrictions, we are allowed to sing.

We are continuing with all our plans for Christmas and New Year services. Obviously we will continue to provide as much space as possible by opening Joshua and Genesis rooms. That will create more space than usual for, for example, Comedians and Carols.

We anticipate the 24th December event to be outside

Plan B means that we can continue to operate our community centre and cafe. We don’t have to wear masks in the cafe. We will keep the cafe tables separated for all our events though. So many comment on the large space of our cafe and the way that they feel safe here.

Please pray. Yesterday was busy enough here, but we are slightly concerned, along with the rest of the hospitality sector, for the coming months.  We were greatly helped by the furlough scheme, but the signs are that this will not be repeated. Please pray for wisdom for the trustees who met last night, as we continue to navigate through this storm. I know there will be a variety of views about plan B, and maybe our response to it, but our intention has always been to continue as much as possible, and be as open and welcoming as we can be, within the law.

Thank you again to those taking lateral flow tests before attending services etc here

Grace and peace

 

Neil
