To read the Faculty notice concerning the Vicar's board in the South porch.

The knitting and craft group have been knitting squares and  making blankets for Herts young homeless for several years. 

During the pandemic more knitters joined our group. 

We also had a group of knitters from St Etheldreda’s Church knitting squares for blankets.

On Sunday 5th September Caroline Neill from HYH came to a BBQ at St Eths. We were able to give her over 20 blankets and having sold some of the blankets a donation of nearly £300. 

We are very grateful for all who have been involved with this project which is continuing at both Churches.

GIVING

The pandemic, with its associated temporary closure of the church and then restricted numbers at services, severely affected our ability to raise funds.  Necessary expenditure to maintain the church still continued.  If you are able to donate, your contribution would be very much appreciated.  There are a number of different and easy ways to donate.  Please click HERE for details.
