News | A busy day at the foodbank | St George's Church

As we are in National Lockdown and are currently asked to 'stay at home', the services from St George's will be on line at 10.45 each Sunday and the church will be closed for public worship until the situation improves. Service sheets are on 'Whats on' page of this website. The PCC will consider the situation and when to reopen for worship at their meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. A letter from the Wakefield Medical Officer of Health is in the information below. Please pray for our community and particularly those who are working to care for those who are ill and those who are providing vaccinations as well those suffering from the wide ranging effects of Covid 19. Keep safe and help each other to keep well.

A busy day at the foodbank

This week has been very busy at the St George's Food bank. Tuesday is the day people collect food parcels from St George's and it seems to be busier than ever.

This week food was given to families and to people on their own. One of the young men collecting a parcel said that he didn't know what he would have done over the past three weeks without it but having the food has meant he has been less worried and able to sort himself out. He was hopeful of having a new job very soon and was keen to know how he could donate to the food bank himself when he is more secure financially.

This works really well because of the very sensitive way staff in the community centre liaise with church members. This week's volunteers were Sue and Nora and they do a brilliant job. Thanks too to Brenda and Eileen who also help with this work.

Donations from the church and through the Community Centre are making a tremendous difference to everyone. Thank you all.
