Our Ukrainian friends are welcome to visit when we are open for the Foodbank on Tuesdays between 12 and 4pm or Thursdays between 4 and 6 pm.  Pop in for a chat, teas and coffee are served.

Richard Wemyss is liaising with the host families and we want church and community to come together to help in whatever way we can.  Richard can be contacted at if you wish any further information.

Foodbank – Donations of money and food have been gratefully received throughout lockdown but with the increasing cost of living crisis supplies will eventually dry up.  Currently needed are jars of pasta sauce, tins of fruit, rice, custard and packets of biscuits.  These can be left in the boxes in each church building or handed in at the foodbank on Tuesdays between 12 and 4pm or Thursdays between 4 and 6 pm.
