Social Justice & Charity Support
Thank you for visiting our Social Justice pages.
We do fortnightly collections for the Burngreave Foodbank.
9th February 2021 - FOODBANK COLLECTION DAY CHANGED- the road up to church is treacherous today and temperatures are not going to change much. The next collection therefore for the foodbank has moved to Wednesday 17th February between 10 and 12noon. As its ash Wednesday on the 17th, the church will also be open for private prayer at the same time.
