Services & Prayer

 We may not be meeting but we still find ways of worship, prayer and learning with one another

We want to make sure no-one is taken advantage of during this difficult time. The following guidelines are in place to keep you safe:

 

  • There is to be no payment or exchange of goods (other than reimbursement of shopping) for any service we provide. Anyone wishing to donate to the effort can do so online or contact the church directly.
  • Reimbursement for shopping should be sorted between parties. We recommend cash or cheque. Bank transfer (or Monzo etc) can also be used. DO NOT give out your credit/debit card details to anyone.
  • All items will be left by the door and the volunteer should retreat a few metres after knocking/ringing the bell.
  • If you are at all unsure if someone is linked to the community effort please get in touch with us.

Supporting local business at this time is really important. We are trying to keep an up to date list of what establishments are delivering in the village. Any updates please message us on Facebook or by email

Get Help

We know that there will be a lot of people in our community struggling at this time. If you need support, whether practical or otherwise, please let us know and we’ll see what we can do to help.

One of the primary ways we can practically help is by offering a cooked meal and food parcels for those that need it. We can also help link you with someone that can go shopping on your behalf if you are contained at home.

Please don’t let anything hold you back if you are struggling, all information will be handled in confidence.

Get Involved

Helping our neighbours is so important right now and we know there are lots of people eager to help. We need people who are willing to get involved in making sure those around us are well looked after.

Of course, we need to make sure we won’t make the problem worse, so we will need to keep our volunteer numbers to  only a few at once and please only volunteer if you have no signs of illness. We will keep your information on our list so as soon as there is someone near you that needs help we can match you up!

    Fill in the form Below Please include your name and number and what things you may be able to help us with - whether delivery, sorting, organising, cooking etc.

Give

As well as volunteers we need some extra resources so we can support as many people as possible.

Finance

We will be buying in food when needed in order to provide meals. We will also be looking at other creative ways we can help people through this time, from combating isolation to helping to entertain your children. If you feel you can contribute then please consider donating via PayPal (coming soon) or get in touch with us to find out other ways you can give.

Should there be any extra money raised we will look for the best ways to put it back into the community to help people who have been more severely affected through this time.
