During this time of national crisis, it is more important than ever that we look after one another and share in God's love. 

 

Continue to be generous.

Our FEED food bank collection point is closed, so please if you can, offer a financial donation directly instead at https://www.thevineyardchurch.co.uk/feedfund . The homeless are one of the more vulnerable to health problems as they are less able to socially distance or access health advice. Please consider supporting local housing charities. And if you would like to continue financial giving to St Leonards click here or go to the tab on the top of the home page marked 'Join in', scroll down to 'Make a donation' where you'll find a standing order form and a gift aid form to complete if you pay tax. Thank you.

 

Look after your neighbours.

Keep an eye out for a new Local Support System that has been announced that will make sure those individuals self-isolating at home and who are without a support network of friends and family will receive basic groceries. Community pharmacies will support those who need help getting their medicines delivered. How will you know whether you are one of these people? They will soon receive communications from the NHS asking them to shield themselves and stay at home for a period of 12 weeks. This should include clear instructions to call a specific number for help.
