The friends in need fund (FIN)
The Friends In Need Fund is one of the ways we enjoy family life at St Bs.
This is a year-round fund, paid into by all kinds of people in St Bs, from which gifts are given to individuals and families in the church family who are in need.
FIN gifts are from the congregations, to the congregations and designed simply to bless and encourage.

How to request a FIN Fund gift
We want to extend small gifts to bless each other in this time and help with some of the most immediate and critical needs, although we are not able give large amounts of money e.g. to pay rent or debts.
The two criteria we use to award gifts are:
1) to members of St Barnabas who participate in the life of our church family; and
2) where a gift of £50-100 will make a significant difference, e.g. to buy food when otherwise that is not possible

If you have already received a gift, but are still struggling financially, then please do get in touch with us, as we may be able to give you a second gift.
