We still want to help you!

Volunteering and Learning

There will be NO volunteering for the time being.  If you are a volunteer, we will keep you updated and let you know when to come back.

There will be NO lessons or classes for the time being.  We will be putting some resources online very soon and will let you know when these are available, so you can still learn English whilst at home!  We will let you know when to come back to class.


We WILL be offering breakfast and lunch for those who need it.  Breakfast will be available at 9am – please don’t come before this time.  You will need to leave as soon as you have had your breakfast.  We will stop serving breakfast at 10am.

Lunch will be served at 12.30pm until 1pm – we will let you have takeaway lunch – you can pick it up at the church at 12.30pm.  Please call us and let us know if you would like a meal getting ready for you to pick up.

If you are unwell and unable to collect a meal please give us a call on 02476 266010 and we will try and help.


If you have a problem and need help with benefits, housing, work or similar please call 02476 266010 – we will try to help.  Leave a message if there is no answer – we will get back to you.

We will pray in our church every day, at 9.15am and 12.30pm.  We are not currently opening our services to the public, following advice, but the ministry team will pray together and you can contact us with your prayer needs.

We will also be posting daily prayers on our Face book page and website very soon.

Please DON’T come out if you are vulnerable and at risk of becoming ill.  Please DON’T come out if you have flu like symptoms.  Please look after yourself and follow government advice.
