Growing in Loving Service


Inspired by our faith, to live out God’s love by serving our community

We are building on the work of the Mission and Outreach team during the 2011-2016 Vision in seeking to meet the needs of our community through Christian service, for example through providing Coffee in the Chancel four mornings a week, summer hampers for families reliant on school meals during term time, occasional lunches for those living alone, supporting the village Foodbank, extending pastoral care to those we know who need it, giving to carefully selected local, national and international charities with whom we can develop a strategic link, and offering a course on household financial management.

For St Helen’s and St Peter’s in the period to 2021 we would like to see our work:

  • increasing the number of people involved in providing service, through the church or otherwise
  • seeing church-led activities provide help to at least five new families or individuals in genuine need each year
  • monitoring the needs of the community and seeking to respond to them by developing well-focused initiatives, and co-ordinating them with other providers

For further information, look at the “Keep Reaching Out…” section on our Volunteers on our Community tab or contact one of the team or Simon on 01438 833306 or at simonpf.best@gmail.com.
