At Holy Trinity SE20 (Lennard Road) we strive to be a true heart for the community as we seek to serve Christ.
Those of you who know us will be aware of the activities we hold to support and entertain others in the neighbourhood.
Choices vary from Crèche, children, youth, and scout groups right up to Open Door and Meeting Point for those who are young at heart but slightly older in years!
A major venture is Living Well, an initiative conceived by our vicar, the Rev Canon Dr. Nick Read. In addition to the much-needed Foodbank being available three days a week and the regular Friday Lunch, Living Well provides very necessary support to those suffering from particular difficulties, including homelessness, unemployment, addiction, food poverty and social isolation amongst others. In addition, Living Well provides vital services in counselling and advocacy.
Even though there are restrictions on the use of the church building, we still have costs to keep the parish operating. There has been a steep decline in the income generated by hall lettings for various groups. In addition, we currently have a particular difficulty. Over the years fundraising has, as you can imagine, played an important role in supporting financially the work of the church.
Because of Coronavirus the various events planned so far this year have not been able to take place: The Quiz, The Sponsored Walk around Crystal Palace Park, the Summer Fair. It is also likely that other events planned for the near future will have to be curtailed.
This leaves a big hole in our finances. We need to raise £5,000. We would be most grateful if you would consider supporting us financially so that we can maintain the Church centre as a vital hub for the community.
