We have had a busy few months at Chippenham Foodbank, with a high number of families needing our support. As we head towards the summer holidays we are anticipating that we will be in high demand over that period and as such will need to stock up on the items listed below in order to meet that demand. If you would like to donate items some churches already have donation points or items can be dropped off at the Salvation Army, Morrisons supermarket, Co op Broomfield or the Hearing Centre (High Street Chippenham). 

Tinned fish
Tinned potatoes
Tinned vegetables 
Rice pudding

Thank you in anticipation of your support!

Dick says:-

St. Nicholas' school is a purpose built specialist school, it is for young people with a wide range of problems.

It is currently under threat of closure. Could you please pray for all those affected by the loss of this valuable resource to Chippenham.

St. Nicholas Church is now open for prayer / coffee each Tuesday morning 10.30 - 11.30
All welcome.

Please remember …

Our churchyard is a lovely, peaceful place, despite its proximity to the road.
Many people come to tend the graves of those they have loved and lost, and spend a few moments remembering them.
Sadly, recent visitors have been distressed to find the area being inappropriately used by someone exercising a dog.
We welcome everyone to come and visit the churchyard, but please remember that for many it is the last resting place of someone they loved, and they regard it as a sacred space.
