St Paul's Community Angels Help Line is available to help people in the area who may be alone, vulnerable or self-isolating with routine tasks such as grocery shopping, dog walking, picking up prescriptions etc. Or even just by lending a listening ear.
If you can lend support and become an 'Angel', please email email@example.com or phone Revd Susan on m: 020 8788 2024.
And please do get in touch if you are self-isolating or know of someone who needs support.
St Paul's Pantry supplies people in need in our community with a complimentary bag of groceries containing essential dried and tinned goods. The Pantry is open in church every first and third Thursday of the month. (In April there will be an extra session on the fourth Sunday, Thursday 29th April). Those in need of help with essential groceries should just come along between 6.30 and 8.00 pm. No referral is necessary. If you need help, you are always welcome.
To supply the groceries we depend on generous community donations. If you feel you are able to contribute, please leave your grocery items (dried and tinned items only please) at the back of the church when you come in to visit, or drop them off at the vicarage (at 116 Augustus Road), next door to church. (The church is open for private prayer and reflection on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays between 10.00 am and 12.00 noon).
At present we particularly welcome donations of tinned items including tomatoes, vegetables (e.g. carrots, sweetcorn) and fish (especially tuna, salmon, pilchards); as well as fruit, rice pudding, jam, custard and soups. Baked beans and kidney beans are appreciated. Also cook-in sauces, UHT milk, lentils, rice (white and brown), pasta and breakfast cereals. Donations of eggs are also welcome. Non-food items that are especially needed are washing-up liquid, laundry tabs, shampoo/conditioner, body and handwash, toilet paper, tissues and nappies. Thank you!
If you feel that you or a neighbour would benefit from the scheme, or if you would like to get involved to help the neighhbourhood, please contact Revd Susan on the 'phone or email above.
We are a community and we all need to look after one another.
