Food Bank

Thank you for continuing to support your Local Food Bank. During January your donations helped us to support an average of 82 households every week by giving out 550+ food parcels together with Christmas treats such as mince pies, selection boxes, Christmas pudding etc. We still have ample supplies of baked beans, pasta, cereal and soup. So, the following would be helpful: ·Rice ·Tinned meat ·Tinned fruit & puddings ·

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 £4150. 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:
