St Ed's will be used as an NHS vaccination centre, probably until September. If you are to be invited to St Ed's for your vaccination the invitation will come from your GP. Please do not contact us about booking as we have no access to the Booking System
The Entrance to the vaccination centre is the door of the hall with the mural by the steps; the exit will be from the red steel doors and if you have the Pfizer Vaccine you will sit and wait in the church
The car park will primarily be used for the vaccination centre whilst the centre is in operation but other visitors can park in neighbouring roads.
FOOD BANK: in the hall at 35 St Keverne Road, SE9 4AQ on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday - 9.30am to 1pm & Wednesday 6-7pm: come in and collect or if you need a delivery (eg due to illness, self-isolation or caring responsibilities) phone or message on 07395 565984
We can also help with access to IT, legal advice and support, SHOPPING and MEDICINE COLLECTION
Thanks to funding from London Funders, City Bridge Trust, the Charities Aid Foundation, Direct Line, the National Lottery and Chislehurst Rotary, local churches, schools, the community and the Glebe Football Club the food bank is well resourced. We are also part of the Bromley Wide Food Hub distributing food from Fare Share. So don't 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. Thanks also to National Churches Trust for funds to mend the high roofs and to Croydon Gate Company for the newly installed gate which means we can now open the side path to the church for a proper one way system
