Would your church consider pledging to give a percentage of it's giving income to Unlock annually for several years, or even for just one year? Regular, pledged giving, from churches, gives us reliable income which allows us to plan our work for the months and years ahead. Contact the National Office if you think this might be a possibility. We can send you further information about Unlock's work, or possibly arrange to come and do a presentation for your church.
