Thanks to funding from London Funders, the Charities Aid Foundation and Chislehurst Rotary, and many other donations, the food bank is now well resourced, so do not hesitate to seek help or tell others about it. Leaflets have been circulated across the community so that the details are available to those without access to IT. We are also part of the Bromley Wide Food Hub distributing goods from Fare Share and others.
Collection of food - help with IT - and access to legal advice and support
We can also DELIVER FOOD and help with SHOPPING and MEDICINE COLLECTION
If you need food bank help - for yourself or neighbours - contact us at 07395 565984, or via Facebook Messenger or email [email protected]. We can arrange a time for you to collect or for us to deliver or just call into the hall to collect.
If you have people you want us to PRAY for by NAME, please message us and we'll write a prayer for the prayer tree as well as including them in prayers in the service. Sadly the church buildings are still closed for the foreseeable future, even for private prayer.
We continue to pray for the whole community and say services at the usual times - 8am, 7pm on Wednesday and 10am on Sunday. Where possible they will be streamed or posted in some form on FACEBOOK at https://www.facebook.com/stedsmottingham/ to share at home.
Take care - stay safe and God Bless.
We are still available to take funerals at the Crematorium or Cemetery but cannot have funerals in church. Please phone 07711 611201 or email [email protected] for further information or ask your funeral director to contact us.
WHEN THE CRISIS is OVER and church is open again we will also be very happy to hold memorial services, prayers and other ways to mark your loved ones life - just contact us on [email protected] or 07711 611201
The Vicar is happy to discuss baptisms, weddings blessings etc... We cannot hold them at the current time but are happy to plan with you celebrations for the future.
