Urgent Swindon Food Collective Appeal & Assistance

How can you help? We have a special appeal page. Click here

Swindon Food Collective

There are food donation collection baskets in the porches at Aldbourne, Baydon and Ramsbury and at Aldbourne Stores.

Information on donating funds to the Swindon Food Collective is on their website.

“Feeding the Five Thousand”

The churches have made contact with Swindon Food Collective, who would be prepared to help us with food parcels for anyone who is currently having difficulty in paying for basic food. There is also local funding available to help with this, in addition to the sterling work already being done by Parish and County Councils and volunteers in the villages. Please contact the Revd Sue Rodd on 01672 541571 if you are aware of someone in this kind of need, or email helpline@whittonteam.org.uk

Whitton Wonderings on Facebook

Short video reflections about life, the universe and everything from a faith perspective, can be found on Whitton Team News, our Facebook page, at 11am every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and remain available to view when it suits you. You do not need a Facebook account to watch these, but if you are on Facebook, please click on the reactions, comment and share it with friends. Contributors are drawn from our Worship Leaders, lay and ordained.

Praying round the Parish

Just a reminder that on Facebook each day, we nominate a small set of roads from our six villages, as well as some of the groups within them, suggesting that we particularly remember the people in them in our prayers that day. In the course of a month we cover the whole Parish. After you pray, perhaps ring someone you know in one of those roads or groups and check they’re OK – and maybe add some practical help to your prayers?
