Sunflower Fellowship Shoe Box Appeal in Romania 2020

WOW!  What a response, with your donations and generosity we were able to send 100 boxes to the Sunflower Fellowship Shoe Box Appeal in Romania.  

Thank you for the lovely boxes, gifts, supplies and donations to ensure we were able to continue to support this great charity.  This is a very difficult time for everyone all over the world but in helping this appeal we have given many children in Romania a gift they would simply not have had without your support.  Last year we received a film from the Sunflower team of when the boxes were opened and it was a wonderful sight to see the children faces light up with their boxes, they are certainly well received.  Thank you 

 

Harvest Festival 2020

In this strange and difficult time we are so very thankful that our community donated an abundance of food and items for our local 3food4you Food Bank in Waltham Abbey.  We are making regular donations and so if you were unable to make our Harvest Service 3food4you are still in need of toiletries and snacks in addition to non perishable food if you are able to donate.

A big thank you to everyone who supported our St David's Day celebration and especially to Adam Scott for the delicious Shepherds Pie and veggie Shepherds Pie.  We were very grateful to Margaret and Brian Wackett for helping to set out the tables and chairs, and to put them away again, and to Stephen Fellowes, Sheila Green, Matthew and Liz Pearce and Hannah Harragan for providing the entertainment.  A total of £442 were raised for church funds and a good time was had by all.
