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

We are in the ten days between Ascension day and Pentecost Sunday and the church worldwide is praying 'Thy Kingdom come'. The prayer is that the love of Christ Jesus would light up every corner of this dark world. During this week we are asked particularly to pray for the Covid 19 situation and St George's church is doing this every day. Find out more about 'Thy Kingdom Come' from the Church of England website where there are prayers, readings, videos, study materials and activities for our children. There is also a booklet to help us to pray about the impact of Covid 19. You can find those prayers on the 'What's on' page with the services as well as on the face book page. Join St George's for morning worship Facebook at 10am Monday to Thursday and Holy Communion live streamed from the vicarage at 10.45 on Sundays. The prayers and readings for this service can be found on the right side bar of the 'Whats on' page. Please keep yourselves safe and if we can help you or pray for you do let us know by using the forms on this website.

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.
