Stannington Foodbank provides food and welfare packages to local residents. If you are in need of a support package please go along to Stanwood Methodist church at 12 noon on a Monday.
If you are able please donate to the food bank. Items currently needed and details of how to donate are provided on their facebook page.
Why not consider a reverse advent calendar this year:
Each day (or each week) during advent you add an item to a box or bag and donate what you have collected to the foodbank at Christmas.
The following items will be great to include in your reverse calendar: cereal, uht milk biscuits, tea, coffee, pot noodle, pasta, rice, pasta/curry sauce, tins (beans, tomatoes,veg, fish, meat, fruit, desserts, soup) toothpaste, deodorant, shower gel, toilet roll, laundry tablets.
Unfortunately due to national Covid-19 restrictions, all our groups are currently suspended. However, if you are in need of support please do contact us.
Network groups - These are being run by members of the church leadership team (PCC). They are able to keep you in contact with church, offer prayer and some practical support and give you an opportunity to pray and offer some practical help to others. If you would like to be part of one of these please contact us.
Once we are able to open fully below is a summary of our local groups and courses:
