Working with local Primary Schools and businesses, our Foodbank is helping those families most in need in our area. To read more about the Foodbank, click here.
There are a few ways to help with this depending on your time and resources-
Donations: Of non-perishable foods and also money to enable us to purchase some additional foods each week. (Examples of the foods we need can be found on our Foodbank page.)
Volunteers: To help on aFriday afternoons when families come to church to collect their food. We need people to help in the cafe (making tea/coffee/squash/toast etc.) and chatting to the families and making sure they have the right (pre-sorted) food bags.
Our Sunday School, St. Cross Little Stars, has run fortnightly from September 2017. There are various ways to get involved and help out with this exciting and important part of church life-
Donations/Fundraising: For materials and supplies/equipment. If you think you may have supplies we could use, please ask one of our team to find out if they would be useful at this time as we have limited storage space.
Volunteers: Sunday School Helpers to assist our Sunday School Leaders on a rota basis or an occasional fill-in in case of illness/holidays etc.
Please speak to Fr. Chris or our Sunday School Leader/Co-ordinator Joanne Owens if you think you may be able to help.
Upkeep and maintenance of the Church Building and Churchyard
Occasional help with general cleaning and maintenance within the building and grounds when required is much appreciated.
Interior: We need help on an as-and-when basis to give the church interior an extra spruce-up before big events/services.
Grounds: We need help with certain tasks within the churchyard, such as tidying and replanting flower beds around the entrances) on an as-and-when basis.
We will ask in church or on our Facebook Page when we need help with these jobs so please keep an eye out for requests!
If you have specific skills (eg. Plumber, Electrician, etc.) and would be happy to help us as and when the need arises, please let Fr. Chris have your details.
