Helping Others

Our Parish supports many projects, some which are ongoing and other one off worthy causes.

Many of the appeals involve donations of items that are needed and up to date lists can be found in the weekly newsletter. There are boxes available in the West porch for the items being collected.

Annual events include the St George`s Day meal, to raise funds for the Chestnut Tree Appeal Children’s Hospice and a Summer Barbecue for St Barnabas Hospice.

Below are our ongoing projects.
