Scottish charitable registration moving forwards as eager churches wait
Posted on August 16th, 2011 at 3:46PM
Acts 435 has today, 16th August 2011, submitted its application to the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator to become a charity in Scotland, a requirement to enable churches in Scotland to participate with Acts 435. An enquiry from a church in Edinburgh, already actively helping its local community through Christians Against Poverty, about getting involved with Acts 435 put the pressure on to get the legalities sorted out so that we could help people in need in Scotland as we have already done for hundreds in England. A church in Glasgow now also eagerly awaits the opportunity to post requests for people in need in that city. We hope the registration process is swift so that we can expand over the border as soon as possible.
We currently have 60 participating churches and charities across the UK with live requests from a wide variety of locations - from Weston Super Mare to Middlesbrough. It will be great to have churches as far north as Inverness and Aberdeen in the future!
