Many thanks to those who have supported, and continue to support, the St Hugh's food bank by leaving donations of food in the collection boxes at each of our churches. Since the country went into lockdown last March, we have supplied 882 days' worth of food to local people who have been struggling due to benefits issues, shielding, ill health, isolation and job losses. We still only help people who find themselves unable to afford food but the pandemic has, in many cases, worsened the issues. We are very low on supplies so, if you are able to donate, please see the attached list for some ideas. Thank you once again for the help you have given to people who are often desperate and in despair.

Morning Prayer
Every weekday morning at 9am we hold a Morning Prayer service, led by a member of our clergy team. We use Zoom (Client for Meetings), the online audio/visual conferencing service. As long as you have a device with internet access and a camera – laptop, mobile phone, tablet – you can join us for a live daily service. It’s handy if you have another device with internet access so you can find the words to follow the service on the Church of England website. There’s also an app for your phone is called ‘Daily Prayer’ and is available for Apple and Android devices. To access the Zoom service, email Rev Sandra at sandrabenham@btinternet.com and she will send you an invitation and a link. Simply press on the link before the service starts and you’ll be instantly connected. The good part is that we will all be there to help you with any issues you may have on your first experience.
