“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.

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.

Praying round the Parish

Each day of the month has three areas of the parish, plus a group of people. You may find it easier to focus on a particular person who lives there or belongs to the group – just hold them in your mind and bring them and their needs before God with thanksgiving for this very special place we live in and serve!
