St. Michael and All Angels Church Eastington

The Austerity Lunch held at the Church on 30th April attracted over 60 supporters and the event proved to be a great success. About eight different soups were on offer complimented by a range of puddings and many folk came back for second (or more!) helpings.

We were most fortunate to have enjoyed glorious weather which encouraged full use of the tables and chairs we set out on the south side of the church.

A total of £560.00 was raised for the Red Cross Ukraine Appeal.

This would not have been possible without generous donations of vegetables from Eastington Farm Shop and bread from the Co-op as well as a number of cash donations and contributions from a large band of helpers who made soup, home baked bread and puddings and served on the day.

Many thanks to all.

We have set up a collection point in the Church for specific items for Ukraine. The list is as follows:

Boots and new socks, baby food and hygiene items, tinned food, chocolate, torches, batteries, medicines, medical equipment, adult hygiene, clean new underwear and Android tablets.

All items collected are taken on a weekly basis to the Polish Association and Ukrainian Church in Gloucester who then transport the goods overland to the areas in Ukraine where the need is greatest.

Please remember The Stroud District Foodbank, too, especially having regard to the cost-of-living inflation and the stark choice between food or fuel which many will face in the forthcoming months. A reminder there is a collection point at the back of the church which remains open during the day time. All donations are gratefully received and taken to the Foodbank on a weekly basis.

The well-used library at the back of the church is re-stocked with fresh books on a regular basis. You are welcome to come into the church for a quiet browse.

Our new web site is now up and running:
