Update on our toy collection for local children

We were delighted to welcome once again, Kathryn and Bridget, to a morning service at St Cross during Advent to receive the gifts generously given by pur parishioners.   All the families received their presents at the same time as receiving a huge food parcel and all were very grateful to not only recieve this but have a visitor talk to them on the doorstep.  As the pandemic continues HomeStart Cheshire will continue to support families to the best of their ability.  This was our fourth year supporting this charity and bringing joy to children who otherwise may not have had a present to open on Christmas Day.  Thank you to Mary for organising this, and to all who so generously supported this.

In all this I have given you an example that by such work we must support the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, for he himself said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”  (Acts 20.35)
