As the lockdown continues and we face uncertainty about when and how it will end, this is a very difficult time for many people. For whatever reason, there will be those struggling to make ends meet, pay bills or buy necessities at this time. While we do not have huge resources, there are various funds the churches have to help people with small sums towards covering costs in times of need. We are also able to refer people to other agencies for additional assistance. If anyone needs help, please do contact the clergy. If you are aware of anyone else who might benefit from assistance at this time, please encourage them to contact the clergy too. We aim to help the community, irrespective of whether or not they are church members.
During these difficult times there are organisations out there that can help you when in need so please call the appropriate one if you need to:
