FOOD BANK

"The foodbank at St Michael's has to date given out 1314 food parcels and delivered a further 411, giving a total of 1725 parcels since we launched the project in December 2020. As lockdown has eased, the resources and donations available to the foodbank from supermarkets and other organisations have decreased. This has left the foodbank with significantly depleted stocks. Sadly, despite introducing our new 'voucher system' at the foodbank in July, demand for food support remains high in our community, likely exacerbated by the financial pressure put on families during the summer holidays. Please would you consider bringing some donations of food to church or the parish office over the coming weeks? We are in need of all kinds of non-perishable food/drink at the moment (not breakfast cereal). We still have a buoyant stock of household goods/toiletries so these are not required at the moment. Also, when donating food, please do include any spare carrier bags you have at home as we run out almost every week! Thank you for your continued support of this vital project for Sutton"

CLIMATE JUSTICE

As we see the effects of climate change in the recent wildfires, extreme heat, floods and rains you may have asked God what can we do? In the run up to the COP26 meeting in Glasgow in November, some of us have felt a call to act - you may have felt that too.

We are joining with Christian Aid, CAFOD, Tearfund and many other charities to make our voices heard, for our prayers and hopes and dreams for equity and justice to be seen across the earth. We shall be making prayer boats on which our prayers and hopes can be written, then we are going to walk for justice spreading awareness of the global issues on 8th October – routes and times to be announced - and then present our prayers in Liverpool Cathedral on 9th October and from there our boats will be taken to Glasgow for the COP26 meeting.

St Michael’s Church
