Please continue to support the Community Larder

Thank you for keeping the larder stocked with fresh and store cupboard food. If donating fresh food please check ‘use by’ dates and that ingredients are listed. We will need regular top-ups over the summer holidays – please consider donating what you would like to see in your own fridge or larder that would contribute towards making a healthy meal. Items should be in original sealed packaging as we need to abide by health and safety regulations.

Alternatively, if you would prefer to donate financially then please make a card reader payment (in church) or online donation (click here). Please feel free to share the details with local WhatsApp groups or anyone else you think may like to donate. 

Helping build our Charity Partnerships
Over five years ago we chose to work in partnership with four charities helping Vulnerable Children.  Clare Mackay, David Perch and Karl Fenwick worked as our Charity Partnership Team to build our relationships with these charities and over the years we have supported them very generously.  We need to review the charities we support, keeping the focus on Vulnerable Children and making sure we have a balance of international, national, and local organisations.  After years of service, Clare, David, and Karl have all stepped down so we are looking for people to help develop our relationship with our charity partners.  This will include organising visiting speakers and promoting prayer and financial support for them.  If you are interested in helping with this, click here to email your details to Richard.  The first meeting of the new team will be at 7:30pm on Wednesday 14th September.



During the summer holidays (23rd July – 3rd September), Coffee in the Chancel will be open between 10am – 11.30am on Tuesdays and Saturdays only. Normal hours resume on Monday 5th September.
