This Christmas we want to bless local people and families, particularly those who might be finding things tough or just need a boost. 

The plan is to deliver 50 beautiful, quality Christmas food hampers plus a gift voucher and the offer of help practically or spiritually from us as a church.

The hampers will go to people we already have contact with through our social action projects plus others nominated to us by those working with them in the community.

We feel it’s great opportunity to share the hope and joy of Jesus this Christmas in a practical way, especially in this difficult season for many.

How can you get involved?

Example Hamper

 

Church will provide the gift vouchers and packaging but we need items for the hampers plus people to pack and deliver them.

1. Donate Hamper Items

Thanks to so many people's generosity we now have enough donated items and money for this year's hampers.


If you have already pledged items, please drop them at the Church Office Monday to Thursday 9am to 1pm (by Thursday 3rd Dec). Alternatively you can bring them to church on Sunday 6th December.

To keep the hampers consistent, here’s what we need for each one (estimated cost £25-£30). See example photos for guidance on sizes (they all need to fit into a box 57cm x 36cm). Please buy nice quality items that will seem like a treat with as long an expiry date as possible.

  • Jam
  • Chocolates / Selection Pack
  • Nuts
  • Christmas Cake/s  (Fruit or Other)
  • Shortbread
  • Sharing Crisps (Large Bag)
  • Sweets
  • Savoury Biscuits / Crackers
