Parishioners of St. Augustine’s will know that there is a great tradition of helping those in need over the Christmas period. In a practical way this means collecting lots of new gifts and toys (already wrapped) for children in the local area. We understand that this is a difficult time of year for some families who may struggle to provide Christmas for the kids. This is our way of helping. Many thanks to all our parishioners for donations this year!
There will be an opportunity for needy families to come to collect donations of toys from our Church. This will always be done discreetly by appointment with the clergy. If you would like to book a private appointment at the Chapel House please call the clergy on 23rd or 24th December. Please call 01236 423044. (Please leave your details on the answerphone if there is no reply). Appointments are available from:
3 – 6pm on Wednesday 23rd December
10.30am – 2.00pm on Thursday 24th December
Please share this information with any families you believe might benefit from the extra help. We can also provide food parcels to help over the Christmas period.
