February is Charities Month
A number of charities ‘lost out’ in 2020 as all could have expected to have received the proceeds from Church collections (money and goods) and events – Children with Special Needs Foundation, Eikon, Embrace the Middle East, Woking & Sam Beare Hospices, York Road Project and yourSanctuary.   There is now an opportunity for you to make an estimate of how much you might have given to them in one way or another during the year and to make a donation, if you are able.  There are three ways to donate – link on the Church website, directly to the Church bank account or a cheque sent to the Church Treasurer.

The Church Administrator, Morwenna Jones, is on leave this week.  Please contact the Church Secretary, Keith Bradley, in her absence for anything which cannot be left until 22nd February.
