A few people have been asking how they can continue to give their offering/donate when not in church.

 

There are a few ways to do this:

(a) set up a standing order

(b) give online

(c) for those who give by WFO envelopes - these can be handed in to the West Halls on a Tuesday 10 -12 noon and 7-8 p.m. during the Foodbank collections. There will be a box available to deposit.
