I do welcome these annual reports and commend them to all members of our congregations for reflection. Behind them is much work: on the buildings and general running of our churches by the Churchwardens and Deputy Churchwardens, on the financial side by Christopher Payne and Lionel Marchant; on the caring and hospitality of our churches so very many persons assist. I do thank everyone for all you have contributed in so many ways to the life of our parish.

 

Much that is important is inevitably not reflected in these reports. Just to name a few things; those people who clean our churches week by week; those who help organise the Infant Sing along, the Primary School Carols and many special services, those who undertake minor repairs of a great variety of things.

 

2007/8 has seen the 150th anniversary celebrations of the consecration of St Philip’s Church, which started very well with the anniversary of laying the foundation stone in May. Preparations have been continuing to raise funds for improvements to the facilities at St Philip’s. Plans have been made for rewiring to take place in the chancel at All Saints and for the clock faces to be repainted and the chimes restored. Alas the new school project moved forward very slowly. KCC have sill not bought the land. It will take 18 months after that event before the school is opened. July 2007 saw the retirement of Marion Brooks after so very many years of service to our church schools lastly as Headteacher of Archbishop Courtenay School. In September Louise Stubberfield took over as Headteacher.

 

We face many challenges ahead. Our accounts show considerable financial challenges. It would help our work so very much if more people would volunteer to help with the numerous tasks that need doing.

 

 May God continue to bless us and guide us in the years ahead.

Again this year we have continued the outreach of our parish, with our church buildings attracting a wide range of visitors from both our local area as well as further afield. We have welcomed many diverse performers mostly in the areas of music, along with the usual school visits, graduation ceremonies, civic services etc.  Whilst our regular congregations have continued to maintain their numbers in much the same level as previously the churchwardens are pleased that visitor numbers have increased, and that people outside our congregations can also see that there is a strong, serving community based around our parish buildings. During the past year we have been particularly busy at St. Philip’s with various events to celebrate our 150th Anniversary.

 

Our buildings, and their upkeep, continue to be a major part of the work of the PCC, All Saints Restoration and Development Trust and the Friends of St. Philips Community Centre.  During the year work at All Saints has been again focused on the repairs to the floor grills and the moving of the organ console to the nave and enabling it to be placed on a moveable platform, to enhance its use during recitals etc.  The next phase of restoration work will be the South Aisle, with further grant support being sought from various bodies, including English Heritage.  Approval for the new electrical wiring and lighting system for the chancel, side chapels and front of the nave has been granted and work should be completed by the middle of May 2008. The Quinnquennial Report has been prepared and urgent work highlighted is being prioritised by All Saints Restoration Trust.

 

At St. Philips, general maintenance has been carried out, with the most urgent work being carried out in the upstairs rooms and landing, stabilizing the old plaster ceiling panels. During the year the organ blower motor has been repaired and major work has been carried out on the boiler and plumbing system. The result of the Quinnquennial Report and Electrical Safety Inspection are awaited. The Friends of St. Philips Community Centre are working to improve various aspects of the facilities which will benefit both the congregation and Centre users. Plans have been agreed for the provision of toilets for the disabled.

 

The Churchwardens would like to thank all those who work so tirelessly to raise funds to support the upkeep of both our church buildings, in order that we too may be in a position to pass on our heritage to future generations.

 

Barbara Cook and I would also like to express our grateful thanks to our Deputy Churchwardens who support us in our roles in the Parish.

 

Roger and Sue Manuell and their band of helpers, have continued to give of their time and skills in so many practical ways to enable All Saints to be open and welcoming to those who visit during the week.  Geoffrey Lay carries out his responsibilities efficiently, and I am pleased that he is available to support Roger Manuell when I am at St. Philip’s or St. Stephen’s.

 

Philip Eastgate and Diane Daniels have also been a great support in all very practical ways, working at the church and centre, giving of their time when things need to be done at short notice. We wish Philip and Hilary Eastgate all the best for their move to Suffolk during this coming year.

 

Marion Brookes works in support of the St. Stephen’s congregation and we look forward to developing further the contacts with the school under their new Head Teacher, along with Marion’s after school children’s activities.

 

Finally we would like to thank all our congregations, for the many of you who contribute to our parish life who anonymously carry out tasks, both large and small, to keep the fabric of our churches and the centre in the best possible order, often without acknowledgement. Without you our work would be much more difficult and our parish would be the poorer.  We are always in need of additional help, especially with the cleaning of our churches, so if you could spare some time to help please let one of us know.

We are happy to report that the church is used throughout the year for a variety of services, concerts and other events.  We are particularly happy when the full capacity of All Saints is used and this has happened in 2007, not only at the Christmas services but also at remembrance, civic and other services and events.

 

Organising the services and supporting the clergy are a number of people for whom thanks are due.  It often falls to David Freed and Lionel Marchant to organise the services and other events.  Our services would feel very much the poorer without the good music we enjoy, so particular thanks are due to Peter Richards and his choir, supported by the organists Lionel Marchant and Brain Moore and for a time the scholar organist, Kristopher Thompsett who has since moved on to Rochester Kings School.

 

The running of services is assisted by many who welcome, act as side-persons, act as servers, read the lessons, lead the Intercessions and administer the Eucharist. Our thanks are due to all.  We are grateful to those who care of the young during our services both in the crèche and Sunday School.

 

Although scaffolding has been present, the church is more often beautifully presented, so thanks are due to the flower arrangers and all those who clean and decorate the church.

 

The bell ringers, led by Graham Heath, are to be thanked not just for the bell-ringing but for maintaining the tower.

 

Also thanks are due not only to those help us with our various rotas on a regular basis, but also to those to step in to help, very often at little or no notice

 

We are currently seeking further assistance in two areas.  Firstly, more help is required to clean the church which is currently done on a Friday morning under the guidance of Susan Manuell.  Secondly, more helpers are sought for the Saturday Market currently organised by Mary Shaw, which not only contributes to our restoration funds but importantly allows the church to be opened on Saturdays.  If you feel you can help in any way, please speak to us.

The parish seems to thrive on the social events and St Philip’s has organised a ‘few’ over the last year.  We had our 150 years celebrations which commenced with a wonderful procession from All Saints to St Philips or clergy past and present, the Mayor of Maidstone and members of the congregation – this was followed by a wonderful Sunday lunch for all.  The year ended with a celebratory service and ‘posh’ buffet for congregation and invited guests.

 

During the year we celebrated St Georges Day with entertainment and a fish and chip supper, we got together for a pancake party and carols and mince pies evening, we have had slide shows with Philip Eastgate and Andrew Clarke on Old Maidstone (including a very thought provoking quiz).  Keith Ashford organised a Quiz Evening, we attended productions by the Willington Players on two occasions, the choir and friends did a production of Noah and the Floating Zoo and we had a fantastic evening with George Hamilton IV on the Easter Story (don’t forget he is coming back for a Christmas performance too).  We organised the May Fair, Michaelmas Fair and Christmas Fair – a grotto not to be missed!

 

We are sure there are other events that we may have missed but thanks must go to all the members of the congregation prepared to organise these times when we can get together.

ST. STEPHEN’S CHURCH ACTIVITIES

 

We continue to be a small but thriving community, meeting twice a month for worship.

 

We also enjoy having the opportunity to worship in All Saints or St. Philip’s which generally well supported by St. Stephen’s congregation.

 

Our young people are growing up fast and are beginning to take an active part in our services, which is good to witness.

 

An after school club has started, which we aim to run for six sessions a year to begin with. We hope to fit it in with the church calendar. The Archbishop Courtenay school have been very accommodating in supporting us, and so far it has been well received by the children. The parents join us for a short act of reflection at the end. So far we have around ten children which we hope to build on.

 

We continue to think of ways to develop, but enjoy our fellowship and worship times together.

FINANCIAL STATEMENT 2007

Report of the PCC Treasurer

 

Last year I said that 2006 had been a mixed year for our parish from a financial point of view. Well if 2006 was mixed, then unfortunately 2007 was disappointing to say the least. Our great achievement of being able to pay our parish Share in full for two successive years was not repeated in 2007 and we were £17,248 short of what was asked of us. Our income from parishioners and visitors, be it gift aided or not, was down at both All Saints and St Philips by a total of £3,299 (4.85%). This reduction in income was compounded by an increase in expenditure of over £7,000 which is largely attributable to an increase in Parish Share and Church Running Expenses.

 

In summary this means that the total day to day expenditure for our churches is £ 96,261 (2006-£88,684) or £1,851 (2006-£1,705) per week. But our total income is £77,779 (2006- £80,711) or £1,496 (2006 -£1,552) per week, resulting in a weekly shortfall of £355 (2006-£153). Incidentally, this shortfall of £355 per week even exceeded my worst case prediction for 2007 in last year’s accounts of £300 per week. 

 

Our expenses will increase once again in 2008 (Parish Share and light and heat costs particularly) and if our income remains static then our weekly shortfall is likely to increase to a figure of around £425. Therefore I urge you on behalf of the Parish to consider increasing your giving substantially as I recently requested in my piece in the March edition of Community. Please don’t wait for another stewardship presentation before thinking about your giving. Do it now.

 

Finally think about this. New clergy are in short supply and when the time comes for our Vicar to retire (whenever that may be), how easy will it be to fill this post, already a large and busy urban parish if our unpaid parish share continues to rise at £15-20,000 per year. I’m told new clergy are being very choosy!

 

The accounts are prepared on the accruals basis. This means they show the position if all income had been received and all expenditure paid by the end of the year. Detailed debtors and creditors arising from this are on page 19. 

 

BALANCE SHEET page 12

 

The Balance Sheet is a summary of the Parish’s net assets. The net assets at 31 December 2007 stood at £23,626 (2006 £41,389). Our net assets have decreased in particular due to the deficits on the ordinary accounts for both All Saints and St Philips (page 14).

STATEMENT of FINANCIAL ACTIVITIES General Purposes Funds page 14

 

This page represents the Parish Ordinary and Extra Ordinary income and expenditure items that are shown in more detail on pages 17 and 18.

 

All Saints with St Philip Ordinary Account

I have already stated that Planned Giving in the Parish has decreased over 2006. Our average giving per person has increased  but our numbers are reducing, hence the overall reduction in giving. In addition to this reduction in our main source of income, all our other main streams of income have also reduced. I would also like to state that collections and giving from the congregation at St Stephens totaled £557 (2006 -£830), and only because of limitations in the presentation of these accounts, this amount is included with All Saints income.   

 

As I have already stated, the biggest increases in expenditure are Parish Share (£3,876) and Church Running Expenses (£3,678). Whilst the former is set by the Deanery (based on a complex formula), the latter is light, heat, water rates & insurance of our church buildings. Part of this increase is due to price rises in gas & electricity but it is also partly due to 2006’s figure being understated. Other expenses have increased by £1,635 which is largely due to the Quinnquennial Report at All Saints and printing, stationery & postage which has increased by £1,059.

 

These higher costs have partly been offset by reductions in Minor Repairs and Depreciation. Details of creditors are shown on page 8 and include the increase owed to the Diocese to the Diocese for unpaid Parish Share which now stands at £57,943.

 

All Saints with St Philip Extra Ordinary Account

This account continues to be used for income and expenditure of a one off nature. Income at All Saints shows several grants totaling £8,284 received in order to finance the repair of the war memorial in All Saints churchyard. To set against this is the cost of those war memorial repairs which totaled £9,978.  The shortfall of £1694 has since been met in 2008 with a grant from Maidstone Borough Council.

 

STATEMENT of FINANCIAL ACTIVITIES Other Unrestricted Funds page 15

 

Fee Account – This is a clearing account for monies received and paid under the headings shown. It includes PCC Fees earned from weddings & funerals and also monies received from use of All Saints Church by third parties. (This continues to be an important source of income for All Saints and special thanks must go to Lionel Marchant for developing this income stream.) These fees are transferred to the main PCC account on a regular basis.

 

Community Account – The figures show a small deficit of £99 for the Parish magazine.

 

St. Philip Centre – The Centre has recorded a deficit of £1,575 this year largely due to a reduction in regular bookings.

 

All Saints Church Shop – The shop has recorded a small deficit of £40 due in part to a donation of £349 to All Saints Restoration Trust.

 

All Saints Bellringers – The accounts show a surplus of £330 for the society.

 

Organ and Choir Fund – The figures reported show an increase in the fund of £378.

 

The remaining funds (Legacy, Fabric and Minibus) on this page are controlled by the PCC and show the movement in the year.

These are two small investments held by the Canterbury Board of Finance (CBF) and the Official Custodian for Charities. All income deriving from these funds is expended as shown.

 

My thanks go to all those who work tirelessly behind the scenes banking and recording monies, keeping accurate records and ultimately helping me to produce these accounts.

INDEPENDENT EXAMINER’S REPORT

 

 TO THE PAROCHIAL CHURCH COUNCIL OF

ALL SAINTS WITH ST. PHILIP, MAIDSTONE.

 

This report on the financial statements of the PCC for the year ended 31st December 2007, which are set out on pages 12 to 19 is in respect of an examination carried out in accordance with the Church Accounting Regulations 2006 (‘the Regulations’) and S.43 of the Charities Act 1993 (‘the Act’).

 

Respective Responsibilities of Trustees and Examiner

 

As the members of the PCC you are responsible for the preparation of the financial statements; you consider that the audit requirement of Regulation 5 and Section 43(2) of the Act do not apply.  It is my responsibility to issue this report on those financial statements in accordance with the terms of Regulation 5.

 

Basis of Independent Examiner’s Report

 

My examination was carried out in accordance with the General Directions given by the Charity Commission under Section 43(7)(b) of the Act and to be found in the Church guidance, 2006 edition, issued by the Finance Division of the Archbishops Council.  That examination includes a review of the accounting records kept by the PCC and a comparison of the financial statements with those records.  It also includes considering any unusual items or disclosures in the financial statements and seeking explanations from you as Trustees concerning any such matters.  The procedures undertaken do not provide all the evidence that would be required in an audit, and consequently I do not express an audit opinion on the view given by the financial statements.

 

Independent Examiner’s Statement

 

In connection with my examination, no matter has come to my attention:

 

1)  which gives me reasonable cause to believe that in any material respect the requirements

 

·  to keep accounting records in accordance with Section 41 of the Act; and

 

· to prepare financial statements which accord with the accounting records and to comply with the requirements of the Act,  and the Regulations have not been met; or

 

2) to which, in my opinion, attention should be drawn in order to enable a proper understanding of the financial statements   to be reached.
