Charity of the Month

Each year, the congregation at St. Andrew’s nominates charities, both local and national, who they‘d like to support over the coming twelve months, over and above their weekly giving to the Church.  The congregation then votes and the top ten charities (plus the annual Bishop of London’s Lent Appeal and CofE Schools in the Diocese) are each allocated a month and details of the charity are posted in church and donations placed in the collection box.

Charity of the Month: In November we are supporting Grief Encounter: supporting bereaved children and young people.  A child in every UK classroom will experience the death of someone close by the time they reach 16 years old. Grief Encounter is here to help with the confusion, fear, loneliness and pain, providing a lifeline to children and young people to cope with free, immediate, one-to-one support.
