A message for Church Members
Help during the Covid 19 crisis.
Help line number 07950504514
We do not want anyone to feel burdened by financial difficulties during this period. We realise that people may be unable to get to their money and/or unable to do their own shopping.
If you are self isolating and have run out of cash - but you have funds in the bank you can’t access - we have set up a scheme with limited funds, where we can loan you the money to allow another church member to get your weekly shopping. The church member doing your shopping, can be reimbursed from the church office for your shopping. All you will need to do is either write a cheque in advance or complete a loan form. At the end of the current crisis, you will repay the amount to the church.
If you write a cheque, you should be aware that it may not be banked until after the current crisis.
There will also be those of us who run out of money. In this case, the fund may be able to provide you with supermarket vouchers for 3 weeks. If you are self isolating and can’t go shopping yourself – these vouchers can be given to a member of the church who can shop on your behalf.
After that time, the church can apply to the food bank, on your behalf, for vouchers which should be able to help you for a period of 3 weeks.
Should people need further help, each case will be referred to Glyn, our vicar, and the team running and managing the scheme.
Please be assured that this will be handled with complete confidentiality.
If you need prescriptions collected on a regular basis, we can arrange this for you.
You should phone the help line, you will be asked for your date of birth, address and phone number. Please give us as much notice as possible if you need repeat prescriptions.
We will arrange for your prescription or shopping to be delivered to your home.
- We will drop them on your doorstep and ring the bell.
- We will step away and wait for you to come to the door.
- If you see us coming, please do not open the door until the person has had a chance to step to a safe distance.
- By following this process, it will help to keep us all safe.
