When church is open - please note there is now a community blessing basket in the porch for the collection of tins and other goods that last.

Everyone is welcome to take something out or add a tin or two. It will be anonymous. It is called a blessing basket because if you give you are blessed and you are being a blessing to your neighbours; and if you take you are blessed with knowing people care and you in turn bless those who gave. It is a win-win situation! 

Help Those In Need

“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord,
