Reopening The Church Building....

Although our government has given permission to open church buildings, after careful consideration our Church Council has decided that it's too early - the prevalence of Covid-19 in our area is still too high. So along with many other churches, including Our Lady of Victories, our building will remain closed. This will be regularly reviewed. (Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance for churches)

Foodbank Donations (via Beth Cresswell)

Food Bank Donations

During this current crisis, whilst services in church are suspended, we are unfortunately unable to receive food bank donations. We would however, urge people to donate at the supermarket where they shop as we understand supermarkets are matching each item donated.

Remember the five most needed items are:


UHT Milk, - Cordial / Juice, - Tinned Tomatoes, - Tinned Fish, - Tinned Rice Pudding.


Remember the need continues and is increasing.
