St Giles Parish News
Please note that ALL normal parish activities are suspended during the Coronavirus outbreak
Please pray for the sick and pray and give thanks for the NHS and all who care for the sick. To help look after each other at this time please:
Collections and Parish Finances
While our Church buildings were closed, there were no collections and very little income. The Parishes still have to meet our regular expenses. If your own present circumstances mean you can’t give money to the Church or can’t give as much as usual, Please don’t worry. If you can give, please do.
If you can get to Mass you can still use your weekly envelopes or you might consider setting up a regular standing order or making individual payments via your online banking platform or mobile app.
Please email the parish and we can send you the bank details, if you can help in this way.
Cheadle & District Food Bank
WE ARE STILL OPERATING - The latest government advice explains food banks can legally continue operating provided we follow social distancing rules and we have sufficient stocks of food and volunteers available.
Donations can be taken direct to the Food Bank when we are open
i.e. Wednesday morning 9.30am - 11am
Friday afternoon 1.30pm - 3pm
And adhere to the spacing of one another we will be very grateful.
If you have a quantity of donations for delivery but cannot come to the Food Bank personally, then please contact us and we will make some arrangement for
collection convenient to each other.
A donations box now exists in Morrisons at Cheadle into which folk can place food items and gifts of money are always welcome.
The Items we are short of are unfortunately items in great demand but if anyone can help by donating the following we will be very grateful.
Mashed potato powder
We are also very short of carrier bags. Please bring them directly to us at the Guild Hall (Oakley Room)
