A Food Offering Basket
This is placed at the back of the church for parishioners to donate food items. These go to local community outreach groups. Food parcels for people who are in need are then prepared.
Food parcels for people in need are also distributed from the church.
This is a confidential ministry where members pray for any individual on request. People can be placed on the prayer list by contacting the vicar or the parish office. People do not need to be members of the parish to be on the prayer list.
