All of us have suffered in some, large or small way, as a result of the Corona Virus.  In the letter Romans chapter 8, the Apostle Paul writes “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” (Rom 8:18)

Richard unpacks this theme in this week’s sermon.

Summer Hampers: fighting holiday hunger.
For several years we’ve distributed food during the summer to combat “holiday hunger.”  The situation this year is different, but the need is the same (even with continued support from the government).  Once again we aim to deliver essential food supplies to all the families that request it via the two primary schools in the village.  Rather than requesting donations of food, this year we are asking for your financial support so we can make a bulk purchase.*
There are a number of ways you can do this….

Bank transfer details: Sort Code: 40-52-40, Account No: 00099644 (Ref: Hampers)
Cheques made payable to Wheathampstead PCC can be delivered to The Rectory, Old Rectory Gardens. Wheathampstead. AL4 8AD.*If we receive more funding than we need for the Hampers Project, the excess money will be put towards the St Helen’s Community Fund which support families such as these throughout the year. 

Let’s get social…
