Parish Giving Scheme

18 August 2019

Unknown26Both The Holy Innocents' Church Gt Barton and St Peter's Church Thurston have joined The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS). Each year it costs more to ensure that our Churches can remain open to everyone, when needed. In order to do this with declining congregations, we hope you will consider joining the PGS and give a regular amount to support your Church. If you would like more information on how you can join this scheme please contact our Parish Giving Scheme co-ordinator at: or the PGS website: Parish Giving Scheme

Storehouse. Can You Help

15 July 2019

StorehouseW A N T E D

The Storehouse in Bury St Edmunds are urgently in need of tinned and packet food and toiletries as the summer holidays get very busy as school meals are no longer provided and families really struggle to feed their children at this time. There is a list in St Peter’s Church Thurston and Holy Innocents’ Church, Gt Barton, together with a collection point, for various items but tinned pies, fish, potatoes, pasta and sauces, cereals, tinned vegetables and soup are always required. Tinned fruit and rice pudding are a treat. These items are collected from the Benefice churches and taken to Storehouse throughout the summer. Thank you for your contributions. They are really appreciated.
