Financial Framework The Financial team was asked to: Explore a variety of different options regarding future of Church Match feedback from Ali Kans workshops Test options for long term sustainable future for WPC Financial Models Analysed: Using all current assets to fund earthquake strengthening Using fundraising from community to fund strengthening Selling assets to raise funds - manse vs church vs hall Selling everything, moving to shared premises model & investing funds to generate income
Financial Realities Operating at a small deficit for the last 3 years. Giving stagnant over 5 years, not matching inflation. Dramatic increase in insurance costs increased deficit. Significant funding now required for earthquake strengthening. Interest on capital vital to fund current annual deficit Need to increase giving by at least $10,000 (10%) to breakeven now Increase funds by 25% if existing capital used to fund earthquake strengthening costs.
Revenue is a critical factor Sources of Revenue: Giving $93,000 Interest on Capital - 4.5% on $495K (Funds maintenance and deficit) $22,300 Fundraising (Usually for ministry specific items) $9,000 Grants (Subject to specific needs) $36,000 Rent from Manse (Pays housing allowance) $26,000 Rent from Hall $7,000

Challenges with each option Option 1 Option 2 Option 3 Future focused Requires both fundraising and increase in giving. Fundraise $60,000 and increase in giving by 20% Status quo No opportunities for earning adequate revenue from assets No money for ministry Quick solution Spend $500,000 minimum Need to fundraise or increase giving 25% Need volunteer to lead fundraising effort Meets future needs Opportunities to earn revenue from assets. Money for ministry from fundraising Many unknowns + will take time Will be some costs but revenue can be generated from investing capital Sharing reduces overheads, lower giving more ministry Prominent presence in a community – QMC/Wadestown Much discussion - PCANZ, WCC, QMC, Wadestown Community
