Coventry Food Bank

The Foodbank is urgently in need of food donations to help them support the most vulnerable in our City.

They are currently struggling to cope with the sharp rise in foodbank usage. They are currently looking for Tinned Fish, Tinned Meat, Cooking Sauces, Tinned Vegetables, Tinned Tomatoes and UHT Milk, although any donations of other things are still appreciated.

Please bring items along and put them in the box in the foyer. Thank you.

Cleaning Rota

The cleaning rota comes to an end in a few weeks time. We really could do with a few more volunteers to help clean the church once in a while. Full instructions are given and the job takes about an hour between two people. Currently volunteers are on once every two months. A few more volunteers would make a duty less frequent. Church is usually cleaned on Saturday mornings but could be done on Fridays by arrangement.
