Compassion at Christmas

Compassion at Christmas

As we look forward to Christmas we are excited to use the time to bless people that we have connection with through the church. We have three different ways we are doing this. Please read below how you can donate specific items.

Christmas Hampers

We are making over 50 Christmas Hampers for families staying in Leeway’s Women’s Refuges over Christmas and for local individuals and families that we know through Foodbank and Growkids. £500 from the October offering will go towards putting these together. We will put a selection box for each child in the hampers. If you would like to donate a selection box for the hampers please bring to Gateway on Sunday 2nd or 9th December.

We will be putting the hampers together and wrapping them up on Monday 10th December from 10am –2pm. Please contact the church office if you can help:

Father Christmas Foodbank

Father Christmas will be visiting our Foodbank Distribution Centre on Friday 21st December to give out presents to people who come in with a Foodbank Voucher. If you would like to help the elves by donating a wrapped up selection box please bring them to church for Sunday 9th December.


For Christmas, Growkids are collecting new packs of knickers/pants/boxers, vests, socks, tights and pyjamas for 0-12 year olds. Please bring them on a Sunday morning and put in the box by the Welcome Desk on a Sunday before Christmas.
