Basildon Resource Centre

Basildon Resource Centre
“Lord Jesus, help us to show You”
 One way in which we can ‘live out’ our Mission Statement is out reach into our community, so when Colin was approached for help by the Centre, he passed the appeal to our PCC, who agreed to help out in a practical and simple manner; to ask for our help in regularly supplying provisions that can be distributed to the needy and homeless of our town.  Donations are requested for the following:-Tinned Meat (not fish); Longlife Fruit Juice; Squash; Biscuits; UHT Milk; however, other items would also be welcomed.  To this end there will be collection boxes in each church from next week.  It may be that from time to time their needs may vary, and so regular updates will appear in the Notice Sheet.  I do hope that we can really make a difference in our community and this seems to be a good start. 
Thank you all and God Bless
