Paignton Community Larder

We were all sad to learn of the closure of Anode, which has been of great assistance to needy people in Paignton for the last ten years. The Central Paignton churches (Parish Church, Methodist Church, Palace Avenue, Salvation Army and Paignton Baptist Church) have felt that there should be some sort of continuation of the work, and after seeking advice from the Torquay Community Larder, it has been agreed to try to set up something similar for Paignton. This has now "gone live", so there is a great need for items such as tinned and dried goods to stock it. Donations can be placed in the large plastic box(es) in the vestibule at any time. 

Current (10 December) items of which the Community Larder is in particular need  are: UHT milk, Jam, Tinned Tomatoes, Noodles, Tinned fish, Cereal, Tinned meat, Tinned meals, Biscuits, Packet rice, Jars of cook-in sauce, Custard, Rice pudding.

The Community Larder are hoping to send out 50 Christmas food hampers this year, and are hoping for sponsors. If you can help in this way, with a suggested sponsorship of £25 per hamper, please indicate your willingness using the form available in the vestibule.

Christmas Postbox

Members and friends who want to wish their friends in the church best wishes for Christmas and the New Year may wish to use our postbox facility. Place your Christmas cards in the box in the vestibule between 2nd and 14th December, and a contribution from the postage stamps you don't have to buy in one of the special envelopes provided in the normal collection bag. Distribution will be on 16th December. We regret we cannot deliver cards for people who do not attend the church.
