Our Church is a warm, friendly, community of people of all ages.
During this unusual time we continue to provide spiritual support to the people in the villages of Wolston, Brandon and Bretford (St. Margaret's) and Church Lawford and Kings Newnham (St. Peter's).
We continue to pray and learn together online on Sundays, and in smaller groups during the week where this can be done within the limitations of current restrictions.
Here is our latest newsletter with this week's news. It includes details of the Carriers of Hope shoe box project and a virtual Sunday school for children.
We are collecting for the foodbank, every week by Tuesday as we deliver on the Wednesday. Paul from Coventry Foodbank in Willenhall would like to thank everyone from Wolston and Church Lawford for all our continued support. All food donations are still very much needed. We were told "God works in mysterious ways. We were 10 trollies short of food that we ordered to come and were really struggling and then you came with all this food!" So thank you so much to everyone who continues to donate. Please keep donating as people living very close to us are in great need of food and basic essentials. Click here to see a list of things that they are in urgent need of! Thank you again!
If you would like to contribute to the foodbank, please drop food around to the Vicarage, Brook Street, Wolston or 29 School Street in Church Lawford and we will be happy to take it from you!
