COMMUNITY SUPPORT

Support during the lockdown

The new transmissible variant of Covid and the current lockdown is likely to increase and reignite the fears of many.   Some of us will be shielding, isolating, or indeed testing positive; for some being ordered to stay at home may not represent the safest place to be, because of personal circumstances. If you are struggling and you don’t know where to go for help or who to contact, or you just need a listening ear, please feel free to email me, leaving your name and a number and I will call you back – safely and discreetly.

“I was hungry and you gave me something to eat”, the Lord will say.  

HARROW FOOD BANK is still operating and is busier than ever. Before Covid we would be having a food collection in Church each month, obviously not happening at present. But the Food Bank still needs our support. So please visit their website https://harrow.foodbank.org.uk/
and donate online. Whatever we do to one of the least of these, we do to the Lord.
