From September 2021 to August 2022 our main charity support will be for our local St John's Hospice, Balby, Doncaster. Further information of fund raising events will be posted on this site, our Face Book page and on church notice boards. 


The Chapel Anniversary of 185 years was celebrated on Sunday 12th July 2022. It was also Holy Trinity Sunday.  An excellent sermon on the subject was presented by our guest for the day and our one time Superintendent Minister Rev Christine Hawke. 

An excellent buffet lunch was provided by Deli 28 of Tickhill and fruit crumble desserts were provided by a group of Church ladies.

The Church windows were decorated for the Queen's Jubilee weekend, with Royal memorabilia, graphic and floral displays. The decorations remained in place for the Anniversary weekend.

Feeding the Homeless Project Update November/December, 2021continuing 2022

 

During the Coronavirus crisis, we delivered 32 sandwich meals to the residents of Wharf House Hostel on Sunday evenings but at a recent meeting of volunteers, a decision was made to suspend this project.

 

We believe that there are now 20 to 25 homeless people sleeping rough on the streets of Doncaster and it is these people that we really want to reach. There are various charities and organisations providing food on some days of the week but we understand that there are days when no food at all is handed out.

 

We are looking into the possibility of distributing food bags (containing a sandwich, drink, crisps and fruit or chocolate) from a central point in Doncaster on one of these evenings, most likely a Monday or Friday.

 

Although we have a team of volunteers willing to shop and make the sandwiches, we are appealing for more volunteers to hand out the food and the future of the project will depend on the response to this appeal.

 Please contact Mandy 07745167300 for more information, or if you can offer to help on a rota basis. Thank you.

Once again we hope to provide gifts this Christmas to homeless people on the streets of Doncaster and to the residents of Wharf House Hostel.

 

Church members and friends have been busy sewing seasonal fabric bags to hold the gifts. We have appealed to circuit friends and the local community for gifts of socks, toiletries, sweets, chocolates, hats, gloves.

Many thanks to all who generously donated items for this appeal.

On Friday 20.05.22 a thank you afternoon tea was held in the Lounge of Tickhill Methodist Church, to thank all the people who have generously supported Baby Basics with monitory donations and items of baby clothing and essentials for Mums. Sprotborough Methodist Church is the Doncaster collection and dispatch centre for Baby Basics. The coordinator Sarah Beckingham, came along to explain how the donated items are distributed via the local Midwives and social services. She also related how Baby Basics has expanded to fifty four UK centres from the original centre in Sheffield.

The items donated have been greatly appreciated by the mum's who have received them. Many recipients have been surprised by the skill of the knitters and warmed by the thought that a stranger has given time to make something for my baby

Serviceable push chairs that are no longer needed can be donated to Baby Basics. Contact Eunice.
