St Helen’s Fellowship

If you can’t join us in church, please join us online. Click here or on the image above for the YouTube link.
Relaxed, informal and friendly with more modern worship music. If you’ve never been before, why not try St Peter’s Praise at 10am tomorrow? All are welcome at St Peter’s Church, Gustard Wood (just past Mid Herts Golf Club on the way to Kimpton).
You may recall that last Christmas we bought into the charity ‘Christmas Lunch on Jesus’ (CLOJ) and delivered Christmas lunch hampers to 20 local families a few days before Christmas Day.
We will be doing the same this year and already have 20 families who we will be gifting these to and delivering on Sat 23rd Dec. If you or anyone you know, needs a little extra help with food at the moment, then please confidentially let Richard or Helen Caldwell (07974 762997) know.
Each hamper costs £30/£35 (depending on when we order them) so if you would like to buy a family in need Christmas dinner, then please make a donation to the St Helen’s Community Fund by clicking here.Donations can also be made by cash, or debit/credit card using the contactless device in church.
We also would love it if 10-20 members of the St Helen’s family would be able to deliver one or two hampers around Wheathampstead on Sat 23rd Dec – many hands make light work! Please let Helen know if you would like to volunteer.
We also hope to partner with the Harpenden Hygiene Bank and deliver appropriate toiletries when delivering the hamper – if anyone is interested in helping out with this then please also let Helen know.

Message from Claire
Dear St Helen’s,
Thank you so much for the interest and support I received when I gave a short update on the work of The Haven on Sunday 29th October.
I am pleased to say that, so far, our ‘Back to School; Back to Hope’ Campaign has raised over£10,400 (with more coming in all the time). I’ve just been blown away by the support we’ve received – it really is the biggest encouragement to keep going with this much-needed work to supoort young people’s mental health.
Every blessing Claire Banham Haven Director
