Food Bank

There is a collection box for the foodbank in the narthex as well as the church hall. We have been overwhelmed by the support there has been for your Local Food Bank. During the FESTIVE PERIOD your donations helped us to support an average of 56 households every week by giving out 81 food parcels. We now have ample supplies of pasta, baked beans, soup & cereal. However, we would appreciate the following:

  • ·Tinned meat
  • ·Rice
  • ·Tinned fruit
  • ·Milk

If you can help it will be greatly appreciated.

Roof Fund Appeal

We have made a good start to our fundraising with some donations directly to the church. Our current total is £3000. Please continue to share our appeal to anyone you feel will support us.

We would love it if you took a moment to check out our GoFundMe campaign:

Your support would mean a lot. Thank you so much!
