Pastoral Relief Fund

The Pastoral Relief Fund is a recent initiative for our benefice, albeit with limited funds, in response to those who in these uncertain economic times need the occasional financial assistance - it is open to all parishioners.

The fund pays out to a maximum of fifty pounds which can assist in paying for urgent things such as a utility bill, transport costs, basic shopping requirements, utility repairs to name some examples.

This may be a small light, but even a small candle flame can bring a welcoming light and hope to a darkened room where we begin to see more clearly. 
We are all called to give light to others.

We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
John 9:4-5

We also welcome the generosity of those who would like to donate towards the Fund so that we can continue this much needed work.
